Where To Get Great Deals For Carnival Cruise Line

Published at 03/14/2012 07:13:10


Getting a great deal on a cruise always puts you in the winner's seat. The Carnival Cruise Line is one of the most popular cruise lines in the industry and there are a few different ways to get good deals on cruises with Carnival.

What is a good deal anyway, and how do you know if the price you are paying for a cruise is a good deal? The best way to find out is to shop around and compare prices. That's how you know if you are getting the best deal on prices with Carnival Cruise Line. In my opinion, any cruise is a pretty good value when you realize everything you get with cruise pricing.

Shopping for a cruise with Carnival Cruise Line doesn't always have to be done directly through them, although sometimes they have some great deals. There are several things that will determine the pricing and those things are:

  • When you are traveling
  • Length of cruise
  • Destination
  • Cabin type
  • Addition of travel protection

All of those are things to consider. The lowest prices for some cruises will be late summer through fall. Lower prices do not always mean its the best time to cruise, but if you desire lower prices that's when you would need to make plans on going.

When shopping for cruise pricing with Carnival Cruise Line make sure you ask about different rates such as: Early Saver Rates and Past Guest Rates. Sometimes there will be other special rate types like resident rates, senior rates, and military rates. Any of the special rate types will give you a better deal than most of the regular rates.

You will also want to watch for promotions and incentives such as on-board spending, on-board freebies, free upgrades and anything else that is advertised as a special deal. There are some great places you can shop online for Carnival Cruise Line deals. One of the best places is Cruises Only. Cruises Only is known for their competitive pricing, promotions and also their cash back option that applies to some cruises and cabin types. Another place that is well-known for offering deals on Carnival Cruise Line is Hotwire. Sometimes their prices may be competitive.

Shop around some more at Cruise Cheap. That is another great booking engine well-known to the cruise industry for offering great deals and promotions on Carnival Cruise Line. Always check out last minute deals if you are flexible with your travel dates. Try a 6 night cruise versus a 7 night, although just 1 night less, sometimes it will make a significant difference in the price if you are on a tight budget.

Considering shorter cruises is an option if you find you cant find a price you can afford on a week long cruise. When you get around to contacting a travel agent, inquire about group space on the cruise you are interested in. Some agents will purchase space on a cruise well in advance which allows them to make special offers and deals to clients. Carnival Cruise Line wants the ship to be full when it sets sail. You may find that you save money that way.

With money saving options, incentives, promotions and different places to shop for a cruise with Carnival Cruise Line, you should be able to find the best deal available on the cruise you want.

Tips and comments

  • Don't forget to ask if special rates are available.
  • Book early or book last minute. Either of those options can give you a better price.
