Default Short Notice TA Cruise Oct 28, 2011 Carnival Magic

Hi! My name is Charlotte. I know this is short notice, but my cabin mate for a Transatlantic cruise Oct 28-Nov 13 (16 day)just cancelled on me. It is from Barcelona to Galveston on the new Carnival Magic. I have a balcony cabin. I checked airfare from DFW last night (10-04-11) and for a round trip ticket which is cheaper than a one way it was $907 on British Airways. I fly out on Oct 26 and arrive on the 27th due to the time change. There is a $50 name change fee paid to Carnival. The total cost of the cruise for two is $3356.58 ($1678.29 per person)for a balcony cabin on deck 9. If you would like to go I would be willing to take $1200 for the cruise fare and forget the rest. The cruise is already paid for. I am offering you the same deal I gave the other person. If you are interested please email me at adaydreamer67@yahoo.com and we can discuss it. I have the hotel booked in Barcelona too. It has to be paid for when I get there. I haven't booked any excursions because I was waiting for the other person to give me ideas on what she wanted to do. I am easy going and laid back so I am open to suggestions. Here is the itinerary:
Carnival - Carnival Magic, departs 10/28/11, 16 nights

I assume you paid for all of it then? If your roomie that dropped paid $1200 then you would be 'a head of the game' so to speak.

I'm already on the cruise myself.

She was supposed to pay me her part when we got on the ship so I am still behind. Guess I should have gotten the money upfront so it would not have been as easy for her to cancel, right? lol

Sounds good! Are you part of the cruise critic group Magical Pond Hoppers?

Since I'm a mod here on Cruisemates I of course very rarely venture over there. I am on the Facebook page for the TA cruise.

Sorry your arrangements fell through.
