  1. Ha I didn't even realize that it does in fact say for November 2021! Still that's a steal for 14 days. @firefly333 unfortunately even if I gave you the offer code it wouldn't do you any good as Carnival when you call to book verifies it is under your VIFP offers. Trust me I have tried that route when I needed another room for a group of friends. @crzndeb @Joe817 I honestly don't keep track when I play so I can't give you a number. Typically I play blackjack and usually bet between $25 to $50 a hand depending on how the shoe is running :-D! I can assure you I haven't ever lost anywhere close to
  2. Has anyone checked their VIFP offers for some insane deals on cruises later this year? I found a 14 day cruise on Carnival Glory out of New Orleans departing November 28th with stops in Montego Bay, Aruba, Bonaire, Cartagena, Limon and Cozumel for $100 PP with a $200 OBC and free drinks while playing in the casino. Holy smokes what an offer! Anybody else have something similar and itineraries they are eyeing?
  3. Definitely not the news we all wanted to hear! I spoke with my PVP and confirmed that you don't get another $600 OBC if you had a previous cruise canceled and re-booked with that credit already applied. My PVP asked if I wanted to go ahead and lock down another cruise and I told him quite frankly I understand why this is being done but also tired of booking and looking forward to something just for it to be canceled. Playing it by ear and when I see Carnival actually moving forward with their sailing plans whenever that will be I will re-book.
  4. Very similar situation! My PVP called and saw I hadn't re-booked from my last cruise that got canceled back in March. I looked at sailings and saw one on Carnival Breeze to San Juan, Amber Cove, St. Thomas and Grand Turk. 4 ports I have never been! Rare I am on a cruise and not stopping at a port which I have previously been. I paid $210.00 for a solo premium ocean view that has a full size bath in it. I will have a $600.00 OBC due to my previous cruise that was canceled plus the offer I booked came with $100.00 OBC. $210.00 for a week with $700.00 OBC was a no brainer! Just like you if it get
  5. Very well said! People can live their life like hermits if they choose to do so. That's what makes this country great is FREEDOM and you get to make that choice. Personally however I agree with you 100%! When my number is up it's up and I can at least say I went out with no regrets and did everything I wanted to do while I had the chance to do it!
  6. I completely agree with this 100%! While I said I would go to the cage and get the cash from the OBC, I have the casino offers in my account because Carnival (and myself) know there is no way I wouldn't be betting that money plus additional money out of my own pocket on the tables 😂. People think it's great you get these casino cruise offers and while they are fantastic there is a reason you are getting them. Carnival is getting their money one way or the other for the stateroom 😂. I just prefer to play and receive significantly discounted or free cruises than to pay outright price for them. T
  7. Of course I understand nothing is sure. As far as what's the point of booking as the increase inventory becomes limited and you see offers disappear. Casino offers are based off available inventory so I jump on them immediately when I see them. I have seen a casino offer in my account and when I log on the next day it is gone. My plan B would be to use the OBC in the spa, excursions, specialty dining, internet package, drink package I mean to be honest there are countless other things I could spend it on. If they change the rules it is what it is! $1,100 OBC is a ton for a solo traveler and I
  8. You make some valid points! While I understand for many it requires vacation time off work, significant amount of planning etc for me if it gets canceled it is as simple as re-booking for when it's scheduled to go out again! I was on Royal Caribbeans Majesty of the Seas back in March and when we returned to port I had an incredible email offer from Carnival to set sail the next day! I booked it and later that evening was when things were shut down. I paid next to nothing for the cruise fare as it was a last minute casino offer and figured if it got canceled Carnival would compensate somehow. T
  9. I don't know about the rest of you but I truly miss cruising! This virus has changed our way of life and those who have loved ones that have been diagnosed or know someone who has lost their life due to this pandemic, all of you are in my continued thoughts and prayers. With that being said I am not the least bit worried about setting sail again and have booked the first cruise out of Port Canaveral on June 27th on Carnival Breeze. If you are elderly or have preexisting conditions I can completely understand the cause for concern when it comes to cruising! However for
  10. In my opinion Carnival is offering the best deal of all the major cruise lines. I booked my cruise as a last minute casino offer and paid $140.00 for a balcony room on a 7 night Eastern Caribbean itinerary. Sure I most likely won't be able to get that same rate/offer but I do believe there will be deals to be had when ships begin sailing and that's exactly when I plan to book! A few friends don't think it's fair I was able to book a last minute deal like that and still get a full $600.00 OBC due to the cancellation. I completely disagree as seeings when everyone was cancelling I had my bags pa
  11. Not sure what Carnival sent or told you about having to sail within the next 11 months? Mine clearly says that if I choose the future cruise credit and $600.00 on board credit over refund that I just needed to book by 12/31/20 for sailing by 12/31/22.
  12. LMaxwell I get what you were trying to say on your original post! Love the "if I was running into an erupting volcano and my guide kept waving me closer at some point I'd probably run out of trust for that guide." That is to funny!
  13. Carnival had the time to put together an announcement and post to Twitter but didn't have the time to communicate via email, texts, automated call ANYTHING to their customers FIRST who were about to embark what was going on and just hoped they have their face buried in social media to come across that before receiving an official notification from them? Couldn't of updated their website homepage until getting an official announcement out? We can agree to disagree on this one..
  14. Couldn't agree with this more! Thank you ULCajunCruiser!
  15. My sailing was set to take place out of New Orleans on Sunday, March 15th. I received my email from Carnival after midnight this morning a day before the sailing.
