From a glance at the Bare Necessities 2019 booking website, this boat still has majority of cabins available. Most of our BNB friends arent going for various reasons including itinerary, ship and price.

Is anybody out there going?

If not, why not?

What change would make you go?

We booked it while on the BNB 2018! We'll give Carnival one more chance to satisfy. However trip was great and fun!

Hope its a good one for you. None of our local club friends are going.

It looks like over half the cabins are still unsold.

Bar Necessities just dropped the price by $300 per person to help sell cabins.

Even with drop, $200+/day per cabin interior plus taxes and gratuities for lackluster itinerary and Triumph sister ship.

What happens when they do that?? I assume that people don't get money back who had already booked for more money?

On a regular cruise they would, on a charter, I doubt it

I may be a bit off but it looks like the inside bottom deck steerage crowd was offered a free upgrade to inside upper decks or a refund to near the new price. Didntt look like anyone else got a fresh discount which would erk me off if i were a loyal balcony buyer.

Again may be wrong,maybe everybody is getting a refund to new lower prices.

Seems fair to me or better get a free drink package per person.

I was trying to figure out what the deal was on Roatan. Is that some kind of a private island thing? There's no info on there at all. Itinerary is weird, two private islands (I think), Jamaica, which I don't care for on a ship, and Cozumel, which is OK. No French islands at all. It's hard to take a big ship anywhere that everyone wants to do the same thing.

Roatan is an island and Mahogany abay is carnival’s company port.

This one has a decent beach but not much other than company excursions to do here.

We generally dont like “fake” cruise line managed ports where you cant just walk off into the normal economy. Out islands are the execption.

Unfortunately, they would have to drop this cruise to about $50/pp/day to overcome the itinerary and ship which are both duds in our opinion.

Yes, cruise line out islands are not normally an optimal situation, but for nude cruises, at least you can be nude there without any issues, as compared to all the other islands on the itinerary.

We agree. Would love to go on another nude cruise, but this itininary is horrible. Bare Necessities has really lost touch with what folks are looking for.
