Question: Hi, my girlfriend works on board the Carnival Sens...

Hi, my girlfriend works on board the Carnival Sensation. I am hoping to go out and see her for a holiday in June. However, it is going to be extremely expensive because - A) I am travelling alone so will have to pay the double occupancy. B) Because the cruises are only 3 & 4 days I will have to book 2 cruise to go for a week, or 4 cruises for a fort night.

The staff do not get discount in their 1st year of emplyment. Does anybody know any ways around this?

Cheers.

Those Carnival 3/4 nighters can be the cheapest in the world if you look at the US travel agent websites, around $200 dollars per cruise, although you have chosen the most expensive month, June, with prices around $350. I can't help with the single occupancy issue but a flight booked well in advance to Orlando for Port Canaveral needn't be a major expense. Can't you find a friend to share?

Have you thought of going outside school vacation times? Fares are much cheaper then... you might even get a break on the single supplement- not much but 150% rather than 200%.

Yes, well they do say that, 'absence makes the heart grow fonder.' But they also say that, 'while the cats away the mice will play.'.
