They do have sales that they will send info out to people. I used to get the emails, but I haven't gotten any for a while. Perhaps it is because I have a cruise booked that I do not get the emails. They will put a variety of sailings on sale, but they also say that it can apply to other sailings as well. Your best bet is to sign up for the email and watch and wait, now if you have a cruise booked, you might be out of luck and not get any email, like me. I check the website and see what is on sale.....

Sadly, my cruise for Sept 09 won't be going on sale, I plan on getting a spa suite to celebrate in style for my 40th birthday!!!!

I just booked an Eastern Caribbean cruise for 2/8/09 on the Valor and got a fantastic price. Balcony cabin on the Upper Deck for $719 + tax and fees (which I think was around $130) - that is a military rate. I booked it yesterday. I am very, very pleased with the price.

You may want to try http://www.cruisecompete.com/ Just out of curiousity I tried it on the cruise I went on and it was just slightly better. Granted I cannot cancel and then rebook since I am just 46 days away but you will be suprised by what offers you are given. Let me say that I am not a fan of sites like this but just out of giggles I was bored yesterday and checked it out and was amazed. You will get offers from different TA's with quoted prices. You will get a few offers. Not all bombarded at once either.

Tried that site too and wasnt impressed. Sure they offered like a bottle of wine and $15 off, very little off if you aren't booking expensive cabins of course.

the problem is its a personal name and you never heard of that person and havent got a clue if they will be there for ya if the price comes down for instance, or some are having trouble now with their TAs who are supposed to get the fuel surcharge back and Carnival seems to have sent the money to the TA.

Buyer beware.

You're correct! It's supposed to be today, 6/16/2008, but I looked and didn't see anything spectacular at all. In fact, I'm ready to book for July or August, but can't find a decent price on any of the ships out of Florida.... Not much of a sale in my opinion.....Maybe I'm spoiled by my TA....

Yea,,,I hated to break the news to you this way, but the facts are just the facts. As you know, I'd spring for a cruise in a heartbeat if I could find a deal, but I guess it just wasn't in the cards. Sorry. You'll just have to get your family to sing "Hoppy Birfday Two Shoes" just like the dining room staff aboard ship....
Hope you have a GREAT birthday anyway.

Sometimes I get the impression that Carnival and Sleepys Mattress have onr thing in common they always seem to be holding one day sales.

i try to book with groups when i can. I Just booked conquest 7 nights west caribbean, Upper deck (i made sure i got a room over the coffee shop, NOT the disco lol) balcony, total price for 3 people (one room) was 2100 total, including all fee's taxes and fuel charges. Free chocolate strawberrys and champagne on departure, 2 free 1 hour open bars, and 100 dollar on board credit.

that was about as good as you can get even military rates werent beat. Plus i get a chance to chat up my cruise mates (off carnival website) before hand, makes me feel like i already have friends on board.

We'll do a table for 4 again tho, were funny like that.
