Update as of November 28th  - We have 51 people booked for the cruise. They are no longer holding rooms for us but you can still call and book under the group. The main reason we want everyone to book under the group is that the Legion gets a donation for everyone that books in the group.  See below for information as to how to book. 

Also please note that they now have balcony rooms available. If you already booked an ocean view and want to upgrade I'm sure Carnival would be willing to help you with that. 

To book you have to call Carnival. You can NOT book online. In order for the Legion to get credit for it you must call and give the group booking number which is listed below. The good news I have called them multiple times over the past month or so and have never waited to get someone on the the phone. 

You do not have to pay for the full cruise now. It is $150 deposit per person due now. The balance due is due by the end of February.

In addition to the rate there are taxes and port fees of $92 per person. Also please note that there is a vacation protection option. Some people have chosen to take the protection and some have not. It completely is your call. Just know that this is an option and an additional expense.
