Default Balcony guarantee question

Hello All,

Does Carnival still offer the ability to purchase balcony guarantee verses having to pick the exact room? I know in some of my past cruises, I was able to go that route and ended up with some extended balconies. If it's still offered, how much of a price difference was there?

Any info would be appreciated.

they still do balcony guarantee; the price difference can be compared on Carnival's website; just go to the website and look at your sailing etc and you can see the special pricing for a guarantee vs the pricing for picking a certain room

I'm not sure guarantees are included with the new early saver booking? Someone else can say for sure, but it may be cheaper to pick a balcony if so?

Thanks for the info!!

It turns out that early booking price, picking out your balcony stateroom is $1900 cheaper than going balcony guarantee. So, it's a no brainer, pick what room you want and save the bucks!!
