Ok, what do you think I should do? I booked with travelocity last week for the Destiny March 08' cruise - only put deposit down. I received there deal at the time of a two catagory upgrade, so I paid for a 8D balcony and upgraded to the Lido deck. I was told that if I find the cruise advertised for a cheaper rate until I paid in full, to let them know. I went onto Carnivals website ASAP and prebooked out cruise info and cruise passenger numbers. Well, I found on a cruise vacation website they offered a 8D balcony rooms for $125.pp cheaper and the 3rd person was $150. cheaper than what I booked at, pluse they were offering this 8D level on the Lido deck - I could go as far as I could with booking it to add my Visa number - so I printed it out for my records, then called Travelocity, who connected with Carnival on the phone. Carnival asked what would I be paying with this Cruise Vacation company vs. what I am booked at with Travelocity - well, travelocity was $150. pp cheaper for the whole package deal (3 people) as the Cruise Vacation company charge you a fee for their services overall, but they offered the cruise cheaper than what I booked at right now with travelocity, I said isn't this what I am suppose to be looking for? Cruise Only, I didn't book any air yet. They told me NO, the whole package deal has to be cheaper. As of today, Cruise Vacation is still offering the cheaper price - SHOULD I CALL CARNIVAL DIRECT BEING I AM NOW IN THEIR SYSTEM AND SEE IF THEY CAN DO ANYTHING FOR ME? Please help, how does this all work - the cheaper CRUISE rate? This is $400. we are talking about for 3 people. Thanks.
