Default Fall & Winter Sale?

Do you think the fall & winter sale will end tomorrow? Originally it was ending on July 31 and then it was extended to August 31. We are hoping to get Early Saver rates for our February cruise.

I'd be willing to bet that it gets extended again.

I think the Early saver rates will be discontinued in the coming months.

I hope something changes. My rate keeps going higher. I'm happy with my rate, but I keep reading about others getting a reduction.

The Fall and Winter Sale is still going on this morning.

The military sale ended last night though. Looked this morning, rates for military are the same but now Carnival is not offering an obc.

Would hate to see ES come to an end. Have done very well with it especially for our hurricane season cruises.

I understand you and others not wanting ES to go away and who knows if it will. Hopefully not.

Maybe they will just tweak it.

I can't imagine Carnival envisioned the negative things that occurred causing so many price drops since they were having trouble filling the ships.

Time will tell.

Bill

I booked with a military discount with a $25obc (it stated ended 8/31). I checked today and the exact same everything was $100 cheaper without the obc. I called and had them make the adjustment since I haven't paid the final payment yet.

I already thought I had an excellent price and it got even better after the sale ended. We are sailing 11/28 (Thanksgiving) on the Ecstasy.

We are booked under the Fall & Winter sale rates. Today the prices are lower than what we booked at. Do I call my PVP to get the price adjusted?

Yes call your PVP or just call the Carnival 800 number and they will take care of it since you are before the penalty period.
