Your pricing for triples, quads, and quints vary greatly within one booking – how do I explain the huge difference?
Rates for triples, quads, and quints vary by sailing and category, based on demand and availability. Our system selects the best price for each individual guest in a cabin to provide the lowest total cabin price based on your desired category and occupancy. This sometimes results in different prices for each guest. However, rest assured, your guests have been provided with the best possible price for their cabin. To simplify the quoting process, Carnival quotes rates as an average rate per person based on the occupancy selected. Average rate quoting saves time (because you only have to quote one per person rate to your clients) and highlights the value of cruising, particularly for families, as the average rate per person typically goes down for higher occupancies. Average rates are only used to simplify the quoting process. Guest confirmations only list the total cabin price you and your clients agreed to.
To assist you in servicing your clients in the event of a partial cancellation (e.g., one guest in a quad cabin is cancelling), Carnival provides the actual per person pricing for each guest in the cabin on all travel partner invoicing. This allows you to determine what amount is to be refunded.
