Default Please help explain Cancelation Policy

Three friends and I (four of us) are to leave in twelve days on a cruise with Carnival.

Here are the specifics:

1.) Our trip is paid in full.
2.) All four of us are booked in the same cabin.
3.) Two of the friends are not able to go.
4.) I am not concerned with any refund money; I know that's out.
5.) I understand there is a $50 name-change fee, per passenger.

My question is this:

Do we have to pay any MORE money if only two of us travel, or if we find a third and only three of us travel?

I'm not clear on this. Again, I'm okay with NO refund. What I'm concerned about is that if only two of us go, we will be charged more money because two of the booked four passengers are not going.

Thanks for any help,

Maybe best to call Carnival at this point if you're only 12 days out.

The way Carnival staff explained pricing to us on a recent cruise was the first 2 people in a room pay 100% fare. Any additional passengers after that are discounted. They ammount of discount varries however. You would know these numbers when you booked. I would think the room is yours for no additional money. I see no reason for an additional charge if there are no refunds.

There is a potential for your 2 friends who can not go to sell their "Seats" to a couple more of your friends and whatever price they could hammer out. Then when your friends get paid whatever they can get, they also would pay the $50 change of person fee to Carnival.

Good luck, hopefully it all works out for you, and have a great trip.

Thanks! I did call, and you were correct.

As long as we're paid in full, no more money is due.
