Default Carnival Splendor jan 31 South America

This will be our first time cruise and we want to take Carnival Splendor FL to Salvador de Bahia.

So far we have been told that we must pay full fare to Buenos Aires which strikes as as rather odd in these current times.

We would be grateful for any thoughts on this matter.

kind regards

If I were you I would take the cruise from FLL all the way to San Francisco. Becuase when I was looking at the plane tickets for South America, they were very expenisve. You can get an interior room for $1,000 on one of the cruise and a little over $1,000 on the second one. So thats what I would do. On John Heald's Blog he said over a thousand people are doing this, but he didn't say why. I am guessing becuase of plane ticket prices.

Thank you for your thoughts, but we are heading for carnival in Salvador and thought that a cruise might be a fun way to get there

kind regards
