  1. Princess and Cunard are the only ones offering the Military OBC . Carnival does not .
  2. Yes, check the Deck Plans . Those few slanted balconies on several decks have more room than the others on each deck . Grab one no matter what the deck . Standard balconies are tight .
  3. Ignore the pressure . Go ahead and book yourself or even better , contact a Good TA for "their Best Deal" .
  4. There is no way a TA can not book exactly the offer that you see from the cruise line . However merely comparing at a TA's "online offer" may not get you the best deal as they are not permitted to "advertise" their better deal . Must contact the TA for that.
  5. I have requested mine up to 2 years in advance , and yes , beyond the next Carnival Corp re- approval date. Once it was rejected as too early but most of the time it gets applied . This applies to my requesting for sailings beyond the re-approval date, for early Cunard , Princess and HAL bookings..
  6. Courtesy Holds ( Options) can vary from 4 days to a matter of hours , depending on how close to sailing or how sold the sailing .
  7. In your example , your TC would be 1 guest Cruise Rate ( $1000 minus port charges and taxs ) ..for every 16 guests booked at Double occ. For small group it is usually returned to the TC after the cruise.
  8. You should always do better booking with a TA . Either cruise price , OBC or other amenities . If you are not , find a TA that appreciates your business .
  9. Every year (except 2020/2021 of course) , Cunard QM2 offers an Independence Day Cruise r/t from NYC which always spends July 4th in Boston.
  10. Exactly! When I was a TA I earned Cunard Commodore status via Cunard's extensive online training . There is no way that I would still have questions about Cunard , especially dress codes after that training and even before actually cruising aboard a Cunard cruise.
  11. I believe the OP will not be a good fit for Cunard . Smart to ask the questions now though . Several Premium cruise lines such as HAL, Celebrity , even Princess without the unique formality of Cunard .
  12. As long as your actual "Special Occasion" date falls within 6 months , plus or minus, of the cruise date , you are good to go . 🙂
  13. Yes, you should get all 3 OBC's stackable from Carnival The OBC from the Rate Code booked The OBC from the Group Amenity The OBC from the Shareholder Plus a possible additional OBC from your Travel Agent
  14. I can't imagine very many guests aboard a 7 night QM2 Crossing saying "I wish this sailing was shorter ".
