Carnival waitlist

Hi everyone!

Question for ya! We are wanting to go on a Carnival cruise leaving out of Tampa on 3/10. They did not have a room for 4 people, so we are waitlisted and paid a deposit. I’ve checked back couple times each day to see if a room has come available but the only thing they have is 2 separate rooms for 2 guests each. These would be fine, but they “aren’t” able to disclose or see the discounted/sale rate until I book it. Anyone ever encounter this? I feel like this is a ploy to get me just to book. Are they really able to tell me the cheaper price??

Sorry but I’ve never heard of this. Unfortunately, the longer you wait to book, the less the chance there will be to get any room.

Since the cruise is so close it is likely all the cabins for four are already booked and paid in full. Maybe you can do a "mock" booking on-line and see what the internet says for the two cabins. Hope you get to go on this cruise.

Anyone else have an idea?

Are your dates flexible ?

Ouch .. I would not have much confidence in a wait list and might want to consider them either committing to something now or choosing a different cruise. May not be the best choice for you but it would be for me.

I definitely agree with Bonnie and Pinkie. cruise line will do anything for a money grab.

No. Please post if you book

We all want to know the outcome of this, please.

That sounds fishy!! Maybe not the waitlist, but having to book before you know the price.

Are you booking directly through Carnival, or through a TA or some promotional offer such as a timeshare?
