You can call Orbitz and or Carnival directly....You should be able to at least get some onboard credit of some kind. Usually travel agents can handle this for you, but booking through ORbitz, you would have to find out....but yes, make some calls and good luck.

Call Orbitz!

Talk to an agent and have them work for you to get the OBC or reduction of your fare. 1-888-656-8184

Make sure you have your confirmation/reservation number available.

Take care,
Mike

thanks everyone, I called but since I received a $200 onboard credit at the time I booked I would have to forfeit that to get a better cabin (that's all they offered since I am beyond final payment). I'll stick with what I have, six in one half dozen in the other

I'm glad Orbitz gave you an option...I am reluctant to use anyone like that as I didn't think the customer service would be very good.

I needed some red bags this week. Lost water for 24 hours when a facet blew out....and the only plumber in the county was in Vegas.
