Does Carnival Australia use PVP
 
I am trying to book a B2B2B2B with carnival but it includes both Australia and USA Carnival. Does anyone know if Carnival Australia uses PVP's. I would love to have my USA PVP contact a Australia PVP. I i want to be able to have the same room on all 4 legs. It will be a pain otherwise. I prefer not to us a TA as then carnival will not allow me to deal with any issues and i have to have the TA do it.

LOL, I can give you his if you want but you may be better of using the Carnival lines. Uncle Les is retired and only works on commission (bevvies and gluten free pies).

Be careful with the Australian 800 number.

While toll free here, it could incur international call charges from your end.

Of course, if using VoIP etc, no worries.

Good man and too right about those Novacastrians. They have money stashed in their surf boards that lot.
Wjat gets my goat is that they constantly rub it in by saying they had a pie here and hey had a pie there. Only cost $x and they had bought all the cakes as well. Makes me sick.;p

Cant your US PVP arrange your aussie cruises? It may get difficult if you have more than one PVP? might as well just book all legs yourself online that way you can deal with any consultant who answers the phone or make changes through anyone, plus I dont think aussie Carnival offer the same benefits as US Carnival like the constant price drop guarantees so no real point in a PVP.

One of the things I like about Carnival is I can book US cruises on the US site from Australia.
