  1. We must be neighbors, because I believe there are only 4 of these. We also have a spa oceanview on deck 5.

    I googled and found nice ones on icruise website.

    Yes, just call them and let them know you want to transfer the booking. It is done all the time, evidently, to get the perks that agencies offer. It does take away your ability to call Carnival with issues/ price reductions etc in the future, since you have to go with the agent, but in this case, since both of my categories are already sold out, I felt it was worth it. An agent will call you back, get all of your info and it was done within a half hour. Gotta say, they were terrific, efficient and a pleasure to work with.

    Mardi Gras Europe 9 Day August 31, 2020

    We are doing Inaugural and Transatlantic back to back (first time for a B2B) in a spa oceanview. Love the Thalassotherapy pool. We did the Inaugural Horizon and it was really great. So excited about this...only a bit over 500 days!
  5. We booked this as well as the Inaugural. We were also on the Horizon Inaugural. Very excited!

    Not sure what that means, but the agent I used asked a superior if he could "do anything" for us since we were transferring the Inaugural too, and they came back with 200.00 obc in addition to what Carnival gave us. I jumped on it. Plus, it is easier using 1 agency rather than 2.

    This 200.00 is in addition to the credit with Carnival.

    They can't do the free gratuities, but he did give us 200.00 obc, which helps...:)

    It went great. We are booked on the Inaugural and Transatlantic. I transferred both over...got the free gratuities on the Inaugural and 200.00 extra onboard credit on the Transatlantic. He couldn't have been nicer. He says they are slammed today. Thank you to the original poster mentioning Crucon. We saved over 400.00 with this transfer and it is much appreciated!

    If you transfer your booking, do you lose the Carnival onboard credit that came with the booking through Carnival? How does it work when you transfer a booking? Thanks for your help

    Exorbitant price of rental cars in Alaska!

    We are booked in May and for 4 days, it is 294.00 from Anchorage and back to Anchorage with Hertz. Then we will take a shuttle down to Whittier to catch the ship. We booked 3 months ago...now, the price has almost doubled for an SUV. It still seems high, but what can you do? Try Auto slash and see if you can do better....they email me almost daily.

    Harv & Marv's Outback Experience

    Just booked it for our May cruise. Can't wait!
  14. Thx. Would early saver matter if havana always sells out so quickly?
  15. There are cabins available on decks 5,6 and 7. Does it really matter which Havana interior to choose? Suggestions or advice please.
