Carnival Cruises Cancellation and Refund Policy


Carnival Cruise Lines recently introduced a new Early Saver Rate promotion. Early Saver Rates reward consumers who book early with the lowest rate guaranteed. In addition, the fares are backed by a unique price protection policy. With this unique protection policy, if you find a lower Carnival advertised fare, after booking, for the same sailing and accommodations Carnival will issue the difference in the form of a non-refundable, non-transferable onboard credit. The policy is effective up to two business days prior to sailing. This gives you a great reason to plan early and take advantage of Carnivals New Early Saver Rates: best rates guaranteed, price protection, plus the added benefit that comes with booking early -wide availability of staterooms, dates and destinations. Please note: Deposits booked under this promotion (Fare Code PPB) are NON-REFUNDABLE. No exceptions - This is a Carnival Policy. Travel Insurance is highly recommended. There is a $75 per person service fee for any changes outside of the standard penalty.
