Carnival Bounce Back

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone- learning about Carnival's casino program and trying to understand where we fall on the totem pole. We just went on an Elite cruise and got a bounce back offer on the last day of the cruise for a free interior with DOU and the deposit being refunded as OBC. Should we start to see good offers based on that? My hubs is the player and he plays tables, not slots (well he did the last day for about 30 minutes and got like 1500 points I think?) and he tried to talk to the hosts to see if the table people got something equivalent which he was told no. If we were going to start seeing offers, about how quickly will his account populate? There's nothing new there yet but I know the magic days are usually Tuesdays and Thursdays.

Usually the bounce back is one of the good ones, but has a very short window to book, with limited number of rooms each sailing.  You are competing against everyone else that got a bounce back offer for those rooms.  Once they are gone, that's it.

You should get other casino offers every couple of months or so...just make sure to check your offers on the carnival website.

This isn't scientific, of course, and may be a bit dated, but is based on receiving the same type of bounce back offer in the past... You will likely see offers for Premiers, Getaways, and other random casino offers. Pack and Play can be really good - they usually have very low (or comp) fares, but are usually within 2-3 months of the sail date. 


For the first 12-18 months after sailing, my Premier offers were comp sailings with $1000 free play. Haven't sailed on Carnival in the past couple years, and the offers in my account have downgraded a bit. Still between $500 and $1000 free play, but definitely not comp cabins. (Not sure if that is a function of my time away from Carnival or an overall reduction in Premier offers. From what I recall, the promo code is the same: P3C or PC3... something like that.)
