I have been a long time reader but an infrequent poster!
I was wondering if you can help me. My grandparents booked a Carnival cruise through a senior center. Even though the cruise is in May, the travel agent is telling them that they have to pay in full in order to guarantee their dining preference.
I have been on over 10 cruises (none with Carnival, however) and I never heard of a policy like this. Normally, I have put in my dining preference at booking and then I pay in full 30 days before.
Is this a Carnival policy? Or is their travel agent trying to get their money in advance?
