Default Another Early Saver question sorry

This is my first cruise booked with early saver. I noticed today that on the Carnival website the catagory that I booked in no longer appears. Does that mean it is sold out and no chance of a price reduction? Just wondering how that works. Thanks to all your wonderful advice and tips!

Check to see if your room category was changed. I first booked a 4D and it was changed to 4E. If this happened then you can put in early saver requests for the new category. If the room category hasn't changed then check another website like the one with the gnome and see if the category is available there. If the category is sold out everywhere then you won't able be put in early saver request, because the request have to be based on you room category you are booked in.

if your category is sold out check the categories above yours to see if they have been reduced. If so you can get an upgrade.

I think you misunderstood me. I had the same room they just upgrade the room category. So I booked 7298 it was a 4D room then about 6 months before the cruise 7298 was a 4E room instead. That is a good idea to ask for an upgrade if a nicer room is selling for what you paid. Good luck.

We always do an Early Saver..
Booked the Splendor for $409 for an inside cabin, now it is $509
Really don't expect it to dip below $409 per person but still check..
