Humm I would have thought John H would have given them out given the Cruise is closed out for new bookings.  Thanks though

The bookings have been closed for awhile. I don’t believe I’ve ever heard any specific numbers before the sail dates. I’d just expect we’ll be sailing somewhere between 60-70% full capacity.

If he ever gives out numbers, it is right before or as they sail.  That way the numbers are "final".

 

But as has been pointed out, knowing the new-sailing numbers, relative capacity, etc would be valuable info for CCL's competitors, so may not be as public as often has been in the past.

The actual numbers are confidential for competitive and financial reporting reasons. The only time numbers are released for single voyages is for advertising and promotional purposes.

He never gives out numbers more than a few days before a sailing. If we hear anything it will be in two weeks. He has said posting all of their numbers publicly isn't a good idea but maybe he will for the first sailing.

I seem to recall many CD's coming over the PA systems in the past giving specific stats on the passenger count/breakdown.

Has anyone saw the first sailing numbers for Mardi Gras?  

My guess is 3900 and change.  This is 75% of double occupancy and 60% of max capacity which is what the other Carnival ships that have sailed have been going out at.

We just booked a balcony on deck 11 today so they must have reopened reservations.  There were quite a few cabins to choose from on their web site.

Oddly enough the reservations are back open for the July 31st cruise with alot better casino deals than what I've already booked under. 1,000 funplay 200 OBC free drinks everywhere...

How do I go about getting the better deal? Or should I even bother being this close to the cruise?

Our friends booked yesterday on the 7/31 cruise and the reservationists told them all of the casino offers had been used and the ship would be at 50% capacity.  I get the feeling no one will really know anything until the ship sails.  Everything else seems to be speculation.

I just rebooked or changed my room with a great casino deal at 5pm yesterday. 50% would be awesome.
