Carnival is selling inside cabins on a December cruise to the Caribbean for $369 a person, double occupancy in an inside cabin, plus taxes and fees for a bottom line of $429 a person.
The Carnival Liberty leaves Miami on Saturday, Dec. 4, 2010 and stops in Cozumel, Grand Cayman and Ocho Rios before the return to Miami.
For a few bucks more, you can book the Carnival Valor, which leaves Miami on Sunday, Dec. 5, 2010 and stops in Grand Cayman, Roatan, Belize and Cozumel before returning to Miami. The cost is $447 per person, taxes and fees included, for an inside cabin, double occupancy.
These are Carnival’s “early saver” rates, which require a non-refundable deposit at booking. An additional warning: Carnival “reserves the right to re-instate the fuel supplement for all guests at up to $9 per person per day if the NYMEX oil price exceeds $70 per barrel.” That means after you’ve paid, folks.
