We are wanting to go on the Breeze in November of 2013. I was wondering how often there are reduced deposits? I would like to hold my cabin, but I don't think I can come up with $1000 right now.

CCL has had several 50% reduced deposit sales within the past 6 months.
So, they do in fact do run reduced deposit sales it's just the when and how often that is the question.

That is incorrect. There have been several sales in the last few months that have run 50% deposits as one of the benefits. There was just one around Thanksgiving.

Oh, wow, ok! Sorry for the misinformation. I haven't booked CCL in a while; must be a new tactic.

Are you looking to book a quad? This far out you could just book it for 2 and tell your PVP you will need to add the other names later. As long as you don't wait til the last minute to add them you should be fine.

Carnival doesn't allow this on all sailings anymore. It really depends on which ship/date you wish to cruise in order to put only 2 pax in a triple or a quad.
*Try to put 3 people in a quad on the Liberty Lido Deck for Easter and you'll know what I mean...*
