Does anyone know where I can get a list of the Carnival "Fare Codes"..? My Carnival agent does not want to share them with me in order for me to do my own fare research & comparisons.. She wants me to use her for all quotes.. I would rather do my own research.. But, the Carnival web site asks for a "fare code".. I know they assign a different fare code for each sale or promotion.. But, what are the fare codes for Military, Past Passenger, 55+ and Regional ? Thanx in advance...

I have a code for you to add to the list. PEB It's the code for the new early booking discount my PVP told me about. He said it's not yet available to view online but some of the price difference were decent.

When you put in the codes, take off the first C on the 4 letter codes, that doesnt work on the online site, C just means its a Carnival code, C = Carnival. CPFF and PFF is the same code, CPIS and PIS are the same code. I havent used either one of those. DP7 and CDP7 again, same code.

BCA is some best fare code, that doesnt mean much. Seems like OMD was the code for a Mastercard promotion that was going on a short while ago?

DP7 used to be the code for past guest code, seems to go back and forth, dont think its valid right now.

You can now get to resident rates and senior rates by checking the box on the left and then going to look at the rates, or I just put in PSE for senior rather than going thru the box checking routine. Iv never found a discount for Texas so I quit looking.

PR1 must be for US residents then, or certain states. We got a good deal with that one a couple weeks ago.

For me, the best deals I have found, have been with the basic Past Guest dp3 code.
I have also used the one day sale code in getting some reductions.

My final payment is due Friday... so you bet I will be checking everyday this week! (Athough I know deep in my heart that the price will come down on Saturday!)....

thanks for the list...

Can anyone explain to me what these fare codes mean... I checked a few threads but still don't quite get it. When booking over the phone, can I ask my agent to try to use some of these for discounts? I am first time cruiser. Thank you in advance!

Yes, you can.

Or if checking prices online, there is a screen where you can enter this discount code and see the discounted pricing.

I book directly through Carnival and I just ask the rep to check the codes.

I want to thank all of you for this info on the booking codes. I am booked on Pride out of Baltimore in Nov. I plugged the past cruiser code (DP3) and found that my cabin is $40 less. I called Carnival, and they adjusted it right on the spot.

I sounded like an idiot when I called Carnival as I named off a bunch of codes and made him check them all. I didn't really know what I was doing but I figured it was worth a try.
