Carnival introduces guarantee

By Tom Stieghorst
Carnival Cruise Lines unveiled a guarantee, promising to refund 110% of the fare if guests cut short their cruise for any reason.

The offer includes complimentary return transportation and a $100 onboard spending credit for a future Carnival cruise.

To activate the guarantee, passengers must report to the guest services desk within the first 24 hours of a cruise.

The guarantee applies to U.S and Canadian residents only and is valid on three- to eight-day voyages to the Bahamas, Caribbean, Mexican Riviera, Alaska, Canada and New England departing through April 30, 2015.

“The ‘Great Vacation Guarantee’ is designed to provide an assurance to those consumers who may be considering a cruise that we stand behind our product," said Carnival Cruise Lines CEO Gerry Cahill.

It is designed to give potential cruisers "complete peace of mind," Carnival said.

Carnival will promote the guarantee with ads, through travel agents, and on a section of its website.
