Today the rates went down. But due to Carnival not disclosing categories online anymore, I called. Was told it was 'my' category. So after I hung up...I called again- just to be sure. Was told it was 'my' category.
After I gave him all my booking info so he could pull me up, he saw the price difference and said I could submit a claim form....but wait! The advertised military rate is 40 dollars less per person. So I sent my DD214 via email.
Point is, using the Early Saver allowed me to get some On Board Credit...where if I had used the military rate in my original booking- I wouldn't have been able to get it.
