    I have run into some glitches and can not make the cruise I signed up for. Please let me know what I need to do.

      You need to email me at mikeyshelpdesk@hotmail.com and give me some specific info. I have to remove your name off the attendance list. If you have already bought a ticket(s) or put a down payment on those tickets, you need to contact the agent you signed up with to begin the cancellation.

      Last year… people realized that if you cancel your ticket, you loose money but if you are a cruiser generally, they can cancel this ticket and keep it for another cruise to be decided in the future. Therefore, you shouldn’t lose any money.

      Our fee of $50 usd or $90 USD for the back to back cruisers are non-refundable.

    I have a question (so I can save for next year) how much did these cruises cost?

      Hi Holly,
      This is a good question with no definitive answer. Prices are usually the lowest, the lower the floor on the boat. Inside rooms are usually cheaper than rooms with a window. And this year’s rate may not be exactly the same. Try going to the carnival website and check out the rates for 2014 for the boats The Crochet Crowd is on to see if your question can be answered there. Don’t hesitate to call one of their agents if you can’t get an answer on their website.

      The rates depend on the cruise ship. We don’t get involved in anyway with the cruise ticket prices. We have an agent that is assigned to our party. The rates you pay with them are the same if you were to pay for the cruise without our party. We have an activity fee that this year was $50 USD.

      Cruises started at $489 and $509 / person + gratuity and taxes based on two people per cabin. The ship is sold by the cabins, so even if 1 person is in the cabin, you will pay the price of nearly 2 people. It is worth it to bring a friend as you are pretty much paying for them whether they are there or not.

      We reserve different levels of cabins to accommodate all budgets. Inside rooms (without windows) are always the cheapest. Low floors Under the lobby, which is usually Deck 3, is always cheaper than the rest of the ship. It is also the loudest for engine noise. Especially the back of the ship on the low floors are really noisy.

      Cabin prices also depend on each person who signs up. For example, if you have a room where one of the people is a senior, the room is sold at the senior rate. If you served in the military, you will get a super deal.

      They run sales and if you see a rate that is cheaper, they will reduce your ticket price when you call in to tell them about it.

      No two people cruise for the exact same price.

      Last year, there was a sale for everyone in Ontario Canada for a week. We got nearly a $200 discount for seeing the sale, even though we had booked months prior. It’s worth it to be on their mailing list to see the sales they offer. You get an email nearly daily but you can save a lot of cash.

      Prices will be higher for 2016 but that’s because the cost of living, fuel and etc goes up.

      You can call our agent to get a quote… this will give you a rough idea on what to save for 2016.
