Airfare Information

Airfare is not included in our pricing. We are a Cruise and Tour Company and do not offer Air other than what the Cruise line offers. With most domestic flights you can find much better pricing on your own if you know where to look. In the case of flying to San Diego we can share a couple of things. If flying from the western states we suggest you check with Southwest Airlines, and JetBlue – these will offer the best prices in most cases.

Southwest and JetBlue services San Diego International Airport (SAN).
To book Southwest or JetBlue you must contact them directly or through their websites.

or 1-800-I-FLY-SWA (1-800-435-9792)

or 1-800-JETBLUE (538-2583)

All other airlines may be checked through Search Engines like Kayak.com, Expedia.com, Orbitz.com, or Travelocity.com . We have found it best to search here, but then try to book directly with the airline for better service. This is especially true in the case of flight changes, delays, and cancellations – so you don’t have to feel like a stepchild in these situations.

Carnival Air Arrangements

If you are flying cross country and arriving the day of the cruise, we would then suggest you consider the Cruise line air arrangements for 2 reasons.
1. They will guarantee to get you to the ship or the first port of call on their dime. 2. Transfers are included in their Air prices.
It’s worth checking before you decide and you may cancel the air up until final payment without penalty. For more help, just call us at DanceFun 1-866-3256-2338 or 1-405-282-8989.
