How do I do a mock booking for a rate code I’ve already used to check for price drop?

Recommended Posts

I’m booked on the 11/12 Ecstasy in a 6D (Oceanview Empress Forward) on a casino rate w/ $500 OBC via rate code OUV “Plan Now, Play Later” promotion. Since I’m booked, the rate code does not show up in my VIFP offerings. This also happened when I put a hold on a different date, but reappeared after I canceled that hold.

 

So, how do I do a mock booking to check my rate against current rate if I cannot see the rate code I’m matching? Call Carnival? Get one of my virtual friends on here that have that rate code available to do the mock booking for me? (Note that it is 6D, Oceanview, Empress Deck, Forward to make sure it’s the same offering for apples to apples comparison).

 

Thanks for advice and/or help *** From T&Cs, the offer expires today (4/3) *** (see attached)

Outside of using somebody else with the same code, I do not think you can.  If you know what rooms were going for in other rates when you booked, you could check those again, and see if things are down.  You could start doing that now, as well to watch going forward.

Calling casino dept is an excellent idea. Will do and thank you xDisco.

 

I’m sure they want to get back some of what I brought home with me 9 years ago... It was an unusually good night at the craps table. They don’t necessarily know that other cruise lines have already claimed that.

 

From my limited view without the code, the prices have only fallen $20 off my current rate, but that may not hold true (up or down) for a “casino rate”.
