Default New Carnival Referral Bonus Program

I called my PVP this evening to book my next cruise (CTN in May to get me to Platinum) and he told me, "That Carnival is starting a New Referral Bonus Program" which is in the trial stages. Here is the specifics:

30 days after you book a cruise, any BRAND NEW CRUISERS that contacts your PVP to book their cruise and uses your name as a referral gets you $100.00 in Carnival Cash. The cruise does not have to be taken in 30 days, just booked.

My PVP is not sure how long this is going to be available and from what I was told, this just started recently.

I hope that some of you can take advantage of this...
Sorry if this was vague, however, it seems simple enough. Too bad it was not for Past Guests as the BRAND NEW CRUISERS statement is what gave me the Ahhhhh's

Oh yeah, please feel free to use my name as a refence for all those new cruisers out there looking to book

If you have any questions and your own PVP cannot answer them, please post and I will be happy to give mine a call to get more info.

Just kind of wondering IF that's going to apply IF we book a brand new cruiser ... meaning I've cruised before, call my pvp to book my cabin AND I also book a cabin for friend A who has never cruised.

Regardless, it's interesting because I actually just mentioned a program just like this a week ago ... another line I sail already gives obc when you book another cabin for a new cruiser. It's about time Carnival begins something like this. Anxious to learn more info.

From what I am reading above in your post, yes, the new cruisers booking would get you $100.00 in Carnival Cash

It will be interesting to see how long this stays in force, especially if it's only offered for those referring a "new cruiser booking" through a PVP.

The "other" line that offers this program only gives $25.00 for each referral, but it doesn't matter how the referred person booked.

Does this work if you do not use a PVP?? We've never used one before and are booking the Sunshine on our next cruise. We have some newbies that may join us, how can they book to ensure we get the referral $$?

I wish this had been available last thanksgiving. I booked four cruisers who had never cruised before on Carnival. We traveled as a family. There were 4 cabins all together.

I wonder if it can be retroactive.

Yuck...so unfair to those of us who put tons of new carnival cruisers on in groups. Carnival wants their own telemarketers to scarf up the sales

I also miss the old future cruise certificate

No, sorry, I can't remember the exact date, but it was usually the first or second week of May...

We love both May and Sept cruising. Went in January of this year and HATED it.....Price were outrageous for everything at that time of year. Doubt I will ever cruise again from Nov - April.

Our favorite time to cruise is the last two weeks of January. Prices for that time are very reasonable. What prices were outrageous?

Actually Carnival has the friends and family voucher for booking already but it's for the same cruise and you have 60 days to book but your PVP needs the booking within the 30 days to get the credit.

I turned a couple onto my PVP, called her and told her their names. She said , "Thanks for the referral."

That was it.

I would have told the PVP about the referral and asked about the $100 per referral.
Several times until I got what was coming to me....
I would have pressed the issue and asked to speak to a supervisor..


CALL BACK,,,,

Sparky2,

I flew from PIT to FLL which was more expensive at that time of year, plus we stayed at a hotel pre-cruise, which is also prime time. We were on the Liberty and had our usual aft balcony which was also more than we spend in May or Sept....so over all, January cruising as a "total" was a lot more....

Of course this happens now...I think I started a thread about why they didn't do this a few months ago. I cruised in March and had (8) people book through my PVP. That would have been nice.
