It's not associated with any specific cruise line and administered independently. Carnival has a new Mastercard through Barclay Bank (who does the Princess card) that gives points faster, but again there are independent cards that are better.

AF1 used to fly over my ranch on occasion. After all I do have a former president as a neighbor. It used to be fun watching the small aircraft getting too close to restricted air space and being intercepted by fighter aircraft.

Kuki's information is a good guideline on your costs.
I wonder if this Chase Sea Miles card is as good as the one I have now. Somehow I doubt it. Do you know what percentage of net purchases you get?
