Default Mike, Kuki, Jim.....please respond.

Could you respond to the post on Carnival price fixing on the Carnival board. The poster claims Carnival is following RCI in not allowing TA's to discount cruises below their published rates. Is this true?

Regards,
Thomas (doubting Thomas)

No, it is not true.

Carnival is not allowing travel agents to advertise lower rates but they can still discount them.

Doubting Thomas. :-)

Sarah is correct. Here is the official policy from the Cruisemates news archive.

"Carnival Corp. also stated that it plans to implement a new policy concerning rebates for its Carnival Cruise Lines cruises beginning January1, 2005, but the Carnival policy will only affect the advertising of "rebated" discounts. It does not restrict cruise agents from selling cruises at a discount price once the customer makes contact with the cruise agency. The Carnival policy will only apply to Carnival Cruise Lines, not the other companies under the Carnival Corp. umbrella; Princess, Holland America, Costa, Seabourn and Cunard."

Take care and Happy New Year.
Mike
