Carnival is streamlining its cancellation policy. Effective immediately, passengers who cancel a cruise between eight days - a month before departure will pay a percentage rather than a flat fee, which had ranged from $150 to $350 depending on trip length. Canceling with more than a month’s notice? You’ll still just forfeit your deposit. And those backing out with seven or less days to go before embarkation lose the whole enchilada. The new policy does not apply to Alaska, cruise tours and voyages of 10 days or more.
