Booked our first B2B

Recommended Posts

We finally booked our first B2B on the Carnival Pride. Since the itinerary changed in 2020 from GT, HMC, Freeport on some sailings we decided to book another cruise. First leg will be the GT, HMC, Freeport itinerary on August 16, 2020 and the second leg will be Bermuda on August 23, 2020. I guess a few people cancelled after the announcement because we were able to get the exact same OS on both legs. We are extremely excited, barring any changes with VIFP my wife, 2 boys and I will turn Platinum on the second leg. We've already called and linked our bookings together.

Congrats on the BTB and turning Platinum!

 

And, might I say, that's a good choice of ship (my favourite), a good choice of itineraries, and a good choice of cabin! There is one particular OS on Pride in which we have stayed 4 or 5 times, now.  We like it, it's got a nice layout.  Enjoy!:classic_smile:

Congrates!  Did  you manage to get the same room as it is a pita to move from one cabin to another on that morning.

Make sure Carnival links those two cruises.  We added a 2nd cruise to an existing booking to make a B2B.  I didn't think to make sure Carnival linked them so once on board we didn't get the letter, the fruit basket or the free photo until I asked for all of this. It was our only B2B and the experience wasn't as nice as I expected because I kept having to go to guest services to make sure we received the things you get with B2B bookings.

Yes, OP said: "I guess a few people cancelled after the announcement because we were able to get the exact same OS on both legs."

Sorry, I thought you had just missed that sentence in the OP.  Yes, what Jamman said: Ocean Suite.

But the "pita" goes well with hummus.

Thanks everyone. I did call and link them, however I'm going to call again in a few days to verify they are linked and it is marked as a B2B.
