Carnival Cruise Lines has introduced a guarantee meant to convince cruise passengers to book their snorkeling trips, horseback rides and dolphin swims through the cruise line itself.
Doral-based Carnival this week announced a best price guarantee for tours on all ships that sail from North America. Guests who book an excursion through Carnival but find the same option offered at a lower price before or during their cruise can get shipboard credit worth 110 percent of the difference.
The cruise operator said some passengers, especially those taking a cruise for the first time, are uncertain about whether they’re getting the best deal by booking through the cruise line. Carnival examined its pricing and made some adjustments to make sure its offers were competitive, a spokesman said.
