Default Carnival Mastercard Rewards

I am just curious as to what others used their Carnival rewards for. Has anyone earned a free cruise? We used our points to get $200 off of the stateroom cost and 4 champagne baskets. We only could choose between that and fruit and I know my husband would pick that up at the meals everday so I thought, why bother. Our carnival cruise specialist said they would deliver the baskets to the rooms on whatever nights we want them. I was just glad that I could finally put the points to some use.

We have just been saving our points. Think we have about 20k points now. They stopped putting what you could use your points for on the statement, so I dont know how many we need to have.

We like it, we pay it off every month so no interest charges. I use it to pay for our vacations, big purchases instead of writing a check. I believe Capital One has decent interest rates too.

The best card of this sort that I've seen is icruise.com's card. You can use the rewards on 11 cruise lines, including Carnival. The card returns about 3% of your purchases off of the price of a cruise booked with them. 17000 points = $500 off.

We just used 18500 points for our cruise on Sept 11,04. Our son was able to sail free as the 3rd passenger in our room. He only had to pay the port charges.

We think it's great. We just got $1000 off a cruise. Got a good deal with Cruises Only. Booked our best deal then got $1000 off of that. Miracle with a balcony for 7 days. $850 each with port and taxes, $1700 total, they took off $1000. Got the cruise for $700 for two people. We needed about 48,000 points to get $1000 off. We are close to getting our second $1000 off.

I just ordered two fruit baskets and two bottles of champagne and was able to take $200 off our stateroom.

I put all my grocery purchases on the carnival mastercard and just pay it off monthly to get the points. It is worth it if you don't buy things that you normally wouldn't - which is why I use it for grocery shopping only.

The only thing is, I called Carnival and they gave me the $200 credit but I reserved my cruise with CruisesOnly so I am hoping it makes its way to them - if not, I am confident Carnival will allow a ship board credit...I hope.

Happy Sailing.

Can any one tell me if there are any restrictions on the class of ships that this Carnival master card can be used on and do you have to book thru a Carnival rep or can you go thru a TA?

I just used 23,000 points to get $500 off my cruise - book with any one and it is like cash so the travel agents get commission. I will have to check out this new card. Capital One offers the old card - wonder if you can go through them to get it??? Debbie

Juniper Bank (1-866-255-1351) is supposedly the new bank that will be having the Carnival credit card. It will offer "seamiles" one mile for each $1 spent. 2 seamiles for each $1 spent on Carnival. Details are supposedly at "www.seamiles.com" or 1-877-Seamiles. Points will continue to acumulate on old card until Feb. 28. You can move points over to new card supposedly.... I called Carnival to find this out... Debbie

Just got my seamiles cards yesterday - When I applied, I requested a card for my wife they did give her a card - - - It came in a sererate envelope but with a different account number. In the future will have to watch these people closely. Everything was done online as never talked to a representative from Juniper.

Juniper Bank is actually one of the fastest growing credit card issuers in the country. They were acquired by Barclays PLC this past year, which has been in international banking for ages.

I did some research before applying for my Sea Miles card. The card is great-the best program I've seen out there. I can't wait to start using it & earning my Sea Miles!!!

In reference to my response (two lines above) I just checked my "Seamiles" account and found that although my wife and I have different account numbers, both of our charges (we each made one purchase) were credited to my account, which is apparently the main account.

Cruzin, Since you did research help me out, I have 20k points to use. We are sailing in May but I haven't booked yet, should I wait until after Jan. 5 when the new "SeaMiles" thing kicks in and get those rewards or should I use them now before it changes. As it is now I plan on getting $500.00 off the price of our cruise with the points, will the new system beat this? Thanks for any suggestions.
