Default Cruise Line Price Match Refund?

Hello, I booked and paid for a cruise on the Carnival Conquest departing in May, 2009. The rooms we booked have dropped in price, is there anyway to take adavantage of this, like in onboard credit, or a refund? Just trying to make the most out of it! I have heard some do and soem don't, but this is my first cruise so I am clueless. Thanks,

Did you book through a travel agent?

Hmmm.. ok. Normally the cruise line expects all communication from your TA. The TA calls Carnival to help you get a credit. You can try to contact Carnival directly with your booking number and try to arrange it but its kind of a shot in the dark. All I can say is badger your TA and get them working for you.

If you booked less than 48 hours ago then you can go onto the Carnival website and fill out the little "110% Guarantee" claim form and they'll give you 110% of the difference back in a refund.

We just did that a couple weeks ago. Booked a room , then the next day it went down $60 and we called, the lady on the phone said we couldn't get a refund since we were within the "penalty zone." But I went online and filled the claim form out anyway and got a $66 credit.

We changed our booking that we did over a year ago to early saver recently. We have gotten the cruise down three times in the last month alone by filling out that cruise. I just did it again last night. I booked with Carnival direct two Cat 11 suite cabins.
