Default SEA MILES MASTERCARD?

Has anyone ever signed up for the CARNIVAL'S SEA MILES MASTER CARD? I was thinking about getting one, but not sure.

I have a card that was formerly called MBNA Cruise Rewards Card then Bank of America mergered with MBNA I think the name changed to Travel Rewards Card. However, it doesn't look like they are issuing new ones. I love this card it saved me $500 off the cruise I'm leaving on in 11 days.

I took a look at the Carnival Sea Miles Card. You can receive $500 off a 6 plus day cruise for 50,000 seamiles. You recieve 1 point for each $1 you spend and double points on Carnival cruises. Which is 1% of net purchases unless on a cruise. This could be a good card if you found out the answer to these questions:
How many Seamiles are you allowed to earn per year?
How long can you save the points before they expire?
Do you pay off credit card every month? (rewards cards have high interest rates)

All cards are different on my Travel Rewards card the oldest points drop off after two years and I have a limit on the points I can accure per year.
If you get this card keep track you seamiles earned for the year and your seamiles that are due to expire. Hope that helps.

There was another couple forum posts on this with great discussions. The link below will take you to the first one and also contain a link for the second one.

The general consensus was the CCL card is awful. Hope that helps, Carla

I agree, you are smart to use the credit card plans in general. But the ones that target very specific things typically don't stack up against the cards that help you day in, day out. These unique cards tend to try, then fold and close. Go with a big visa card plan.
