    New to CF

    Hi, newbie here. I have CF monitoring two B2B cruises for me. I'm booked Early Saver. Is it only Early Saver reductions I will qualify for?

    You will get notifcations of all that you checked on Cruise Fish.  I've booked Early Saver before and then applied for discounts based on other reductions and received them.  If you are travelling thru Carnival, it's super easy to apply for the discounts so you aren't out any time if they deny it.  And you can apply again if it drops again.  We started our last cruise with $300 onboard credit.  Our next one in October we already have almost that much.

    I too am new to CF and I have figured out how to set an alert on my cruise in May. However, the category that I have set an alert on is not the price we paid for our cruise. Even more, I went the Carnival website myself this week as I do every week to check the price of the cruise and got $400 off the price of my cruise myself. This is a price reduction that CF is not showing. I want to cancel my membership and get my money back. In my opinion, a complete rip off.

    If you give a specific link to the cruise, categories and rates you are watching I can check whether there was a problem or not.

    If you are still not happy I can give you a refund.

    This is the link to the Carnival cruise website. I went the specific screen that says we get $200 off the cruise price plus $200 OBC. There is also an offer there of a 1/2 off deposit which we had already put down our deposit so it didn't matter. There is an offer of a free upgrade but we had already used an upgrade to get the balcony room.

    This is the link to the cruise I am watching. For some reason, the prices here are all higher than what we even paid for our cruise from the beginning.

    I would also like to state that I joined this website because my neighbor also takes a lot of cruises. She recommended it because when she joined, she ended up getting $500 off the price of her cruise plus got a suite for the price of an ocean view. I've heard good things about the site itself so I'm not sure if I'm doing it right or if I'm just getting better deals dealing directly with Carnival.

    Ah, now I understand the price discrepancies you are seeing. You are quoting for 3 passengers whereas are prices are on double occupancy basis.

    I plan to add support for 1, 3 and 4 passengers in the near future.

    So for now your best bet is to follow our prices and infer any variation for 3 passengers, as Carnival simply divides the total room price by the number of passengers from 1 to 4.
