Deposit & Payment Schedule
A $25 per person payment is due by April 20, 2024 to hold a cabin for you. 
A $150 per person deposit is due by May 24, 2024. A booking number number will be assigned to all guests in cabin.
The balance of your cruise is due by July 8, 2024.
Required Travel Documents

All passengers must present either a passport book or card that does not expire before March 26, 2025 OR a copy of a birth certificate  AND a government issued photo ID. 

It is important that the guest's full name (first name and last name) on the cruise and airline tickets be the same as the guest's unexpired, government-issued photo ID that will be used for travel identification. In the event of a different name on the cruise/airline ticket and the guest's photo ID because of a marriage, divorce or a legal name change, documentation (original or clear, legible copy) supporting this change is required at embarkation, such as a marriage certificate, marriage license or legal name change court document. Failure to bring documentation bridging the name differences could result in denial of boarding.

Traveling with Minors
When traveling with a minor where one parent or both parents or legal guardians are not cruising, we strongly recommend bringing an original, signed letter from the absent parent(s) or legal guardians authorizing the minor to travel with you. If there is no second parent with legal claims to the minor (due to sole custody, deceased, etc.) other relevant paperwork, such as a court decision, death certificate, birth certificate naming only one parent, would be useful to bring in place of a signed letter. This will expedite processing by the Department of Homeland Security.

Final payment is due by July 8, 2024. Once your booking is within Carnival's cancellation penalty period, the amount of penalty will increase as the cruise departure approaches. When calculating the days prior to sailing, the day of sailing should not be considered as one of the days. The day of sailing is considered the first day of the cruise.
