Lead Passenger 

 The primary traveler on a reservation is responsible for receiving and relaying all communications/documents to the rest of the passengers on the same reservation. 

Itinerary & Carnival HUB

There is a full itinerary with activities every day. A day-by-day itinerary will be accessible in the Carnival HUB upon embarkation. You can find detailed instructions on downloading Carnival's HUB here

Deposit 

A non-refundable partial deposit of $50 per person is due at the time of reservation. This deposit holds your spot on the voyage; however, it does not secure you a cabin. Your second payment of $200 per person completes your non-refundable deposit requirements of $250 per person; your cabin can be berth at that time. Once the full deposit of $250 is paid for all persons on your reservation, that can begin the berthing process. 

Passport & Identification 

A passport is not required for passengers on closed-loop sailings departing a U.S Port. Despite a passport not-being required, Texas Girl Travel does recommend using a passport to sail. If you need to apply for a passport, please visit the US Department of State website. 

 U.S citizens may use a certified birth certificate for cruising along with a valid photo ID. Refunds will not be provided for expired or delayed passports, incorrect or non-valid travel documents, or missed flights. 

Pricing & VIFP

Cabin rates are based on double occupancy, single occupancy is responsible for 200% of cruise fare. Current Carnival VIFP members may have special offers available. Please ensure that your VIFP number is included in your information so that while berthing, I can pull in your available offers and book you with the best rate.  

Final Payment Due March 25, 2025

Travel Insurance 

We highly recommend travel insurance. You never know what can happen and having an extra safeguard helps provide financial security and peace of mind. Carnival does offer a Vacation Protection Plan at an additional cost, you can view the coverage details on Carnival's Website. If you do not choose to purchase travel insurance, a signed denial of coverage will be required. 

*Fuel Surcharge

Carnival reserves the right to assess a fuel surcharge if a rise in the market price of oil necessitates a supplement. There is no fuel surcharge currently in place. Taxes, fuel surcharges, port charges, and fees are subject to change.
