Default Carnival One-Day Sale? Kiss or diss?

Carnival is having their much-hyped (you probably got the e-mails) one-day sale today. Is the pricing worthy of the hype, or is better to come?
The "upgrade" is a real load of ****, as usual.

Just my opinion, but I did not detect much movement from their usual prices this year. Is it all just a big hype job?

I've received the e-mail, in triplicate, every day this week, along with several phone messages from "Daniel" with Carnival Cruise Lines. I don't know about the deals, but it certainly looks like they're desperate for bookings!

IMO, there may be 1 or 2 cruises that have a slight discount. Unless you want to book those specific cruises, there is nothing there.

The cruise lines have "The Best One Day Sale Ever" every week.

My guess is it's like the spammers.... someone somewhere out there is buying, so they keep sending them out by the zillions.

To me, they are annoying at best.

I agree with Kuki

They have now become the cruise junk snail mail that I now throw in the recycle bin. There is always some sort of great "cruise bargain" that really isn't much of a bargain.

If the cruise lines continue to have these "Fantastic One Day Sales" they will become the mattress store, that always has the "SALE" sign in the window, and be meaningless.

Take care,
Mike
