yes it does depend on the length of the cruise. The following are the rules from Carnivals website. As you mentioned sometimes they stop selling ES before the allotted times. I've never heard of them continuing to sell it after the allotted times but I don't check either.
Glad you found a way to get ES after the time frame mentioned.
