At Sea And In The Air With Carnival


Carnival Cruise Line is making it easier for agents to get their clients to their cruise with the launch a new air program – Fly2Fun – designed to provide travellers with “maximum value, choice and convenience” when making their air arrangements.

The new Fly2Fun program is highly flexible as it allows agents and their guests to customize their air reservations with a variety of options, including the ability to specify a preferred carrier, departure point, specific flight schedule, and type of accommodation (coach, business, etc.). Immediate confirmation is received once the reservation is made. Flights can also be customized for those wishing to extend their vacation with a pre- or post-cruise stay.

Fly2Fun also includes a Flight Protection Program that ensures guests will be flown to the next port of call to begin their cruise should they miss their departure due to airline mechanical or weather-related issues. Carnival will cover air, hotel, transportation and meal costs for guests to meet the ship in the next port of call.

“Our new Fly2Fun program is a convenient tool that saves our guests valuable time when booking their flights while offering attractive features like the Flight Protection Program that provides peace of mind knowing we’ll fly them to the next port should they miss their cruise,” said Vicky Blanch, Carnival’s director of travel operations.

Two options are available within Fly2Fun – Flexible Air and Restricted Air. With Flexible Air, guests or their travel agent can book travel on major carriers up to four days prior to sailing with an attractive “Book Now – Pay Later” feature in which payment for air is collected with the final cruise payment. Additionally, there are no change fees if modifications are made outside of 60 days of departure.

With the Restricted Air option, tickets are non-refundable. Tickets must be paid at the time of booking and change fees are based on the airlines’ policies once the ticket is issued.

Travel agents making air reservations for their clients can call 1-800-327-5782.
