Default Carnival owns Princess????

We recently heard that Carnival bought Princess, does anyone know if this is true? AND if so, we are looking at an Alaskan cruise next year - Carnival only does one week and we want two so we're wondering if Carnival owns Princess can we book a Princess Cruise and have it count towards our Carnival cruises???

Yes, Carnival does own Princess. But not sure how there vacation programs work.
Maybe some one can help with that.
Happy Cruising to all;
David

As far as I can tell, Carnival doesn't let its companies share your past cruises... I've got 7 cruises, 3 on HAL, 2 Carnival, 2 Princess, and I can't aggregate them at all.

Princess and HAL have the best Alaska itineraries, and both also offer pre or post-cruise tours that include Vista railcars and private lodges near Mt. McKinley.

I think what confuses people is the fact that Hal, Princess etc are all owned by Carnival Corporation. Carnival Cruise Lines is just that...Carnival Cruise Line. However, that being said RCCL owns Celebrity and while I still don't think you can combine cruises between the two...you can get Celebrity perks based on your number of RCCL cruises (if I am not mistaken). This is what we are pushing for at Carnival.

We want Carnival to add an Elite card after 25 cruises that would allow passengers to enjoy the best perks of any sister cruise line!
Who's with me?? Use those comment cards!!

Hi punk,

Yes, Carnival Corp. does own Princess. As of now, you can't add Carnival and Princess cruises together . But, if you own at least 100 shares of Carnival stock you can get OBC on Princess.

You can check this site for more info on the "World's Leading Cruislines":

If you go to Carnival.com on the web check out the VIP Priviliges

Past Guest Privileges Include:
• Eligibility to VIP privileges, offering exclusive benefits on ALL Carnival sister-brands.

While they don't (YET) let you combine your cruises, they are letting you book on all their lines at the past cruiser rate, including any upgrade offers they may have.

I seem to think that to keep ahead of the others they may have to offer at least exchangeable credit much like air miles.

Have fun and enjoy, whichever you choose.
Bob
