Any group Carnival Cruisers out there...???

Recommended Posts

Yup- they can take cabins back at will if they do not have names and/or deposits. Sometimes you can ask for more time-it never hurts to try- but sometimes they just will not give it to you if the ship is sailing that well, I've had it happen to me.


To Carnival you've had these rooms since February or earlier so they are not looking at it as all of a sudden! The cruise line's are very fickle and the contracts are all very one sided-to them of course!


They are basically allowed to do whatever they want-change itineraries, take back group space-heck there was even a few times when they oversold and denied passengers their cruise (not to my clients thank goodness, but a word of caution -do not book guarantee cabins as it apperas those are the ones bumped ) !


There are a couple of additional factors that you & the TA may be dealing with :

The cruiseline can and will change group policies at the drop of a hat-again to suit them-they reserve that right!

It also depends on which res agent the TA gets when calling in - some are extreme sticklers to the policies, some are more lenient and some just don't have a clue-I've also run into a couple that would make up their own policies! It's a running joke in the agent community that if you don't like the first answer to call back again till you get the answer you like!


Needless to say- I love cruising, it's not quite what it used to be in terms of quality but still a great vacation- but I don't sell cruises anymore because of all the above plus a few other things.

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
