Carnival Cruise Line Offers More OBC

Carnival Cruise Line is giving guests a couple of options that are concerned about their upcoming voyage that is longer than seven nights. 

Now, guests booked on sailings longer than a week through October 31, have the ability to cancel their reservation without penalty, or they can wait, and if the cruise does operate, they will receive a $100 per cabin OBC.  

If that cruise eventually cancels, the guest will be entitled to the FCC/OBC offer or a full refund.

Currently, Carnival Cruise Line has all sailings canceled through the end of April.
