As part of a new “FUNomenal Group Sail” promotion, Carnival Cruise Line is reducing its initial deposit requirement by fifty percent for group bookings, as well as offering an enhanced free cruise berth program, through March 15, 2017.
Through the new promotion, deposits are reduced by fifty percent for group bookings on select sailings departing between August 15, 2017 and April 30, 2019.
In addition, Carnival is offering travel agents one free cruise berth for every 10 full fare guests berthed, compared to the line’s current program of one free cruise berth for every 15 full fare guests berthed.
“Our business development team is always working with agents on building lucrative affinity group business and we created this promotion based on what our partners told us would be most helpful to them during this busy booking period,” said Carnival’s VP of Sales & Trade Marketing Adolfo Perez.
“We are committed to providing the best sales and service in the industry to our partners and the key components of this promotion are an extension of that.”
Group fares applicable to this promotion, which are available between now and March 15, 2017 begin at $229 for three- to five-day cruises and $459 for voyages of six days or longer. Certain restrictions apply.
