How many of you all feel it is worth it to book it? How many feel it is better to book a different rate and why?

For the most part Carnival rates are rather open ended.  Meaning that they have a price guarantee that if their rate drops below the rate that you booked at you can get the cheaper rate just by calling and stating you want the cheaper rate.  We always book the early saver and then I watch religiously to see if it drops!

Me too! I feel like an addict waiting on my "cruiseaholic" fix! Sometimes the drop is so quick and then it's gone. Lol I have got some good OBC coming in June and still trying to rack up more.

The early saver is guaranteed to be the lowest rate prior to the payment due date (If the rate drops, you can have yours adjusted to the lower rate). One of the few honest guarantees out there.

 We always book early saver. Plenty of times the price has come down and we got the lower price. I like the peace of mind knowing this.

So many restrictions, admin fees for changes or deletions, etc. with Early Saver. We use past guest or military and get travel insurance. If we ever have to cancel before final payment we get all our $ back. Nothing worse than 'life happening' and you lose $ on a vacation you never got to take.
