I received an email from Carnival about reduced deposits on cruises until July 31,2018. The deposit was reduced to $49 a person on their early saver cruises. After the deposit you will have to make small payments until 90 days from your sailing date. This seems to be a good deal which makes it affordable for people with a limited budget. The ship I am taking in 2019 is almost sold out on interior rooms and alot of the balcony rooms are also booked. However, there is still room on the ship. If you are thinking about taking a cruise. Then this maybe a good entry option to go on one.
