@gogogiraffes: i’m confused. how does that work? like you pick an amount and send them it and they will give you a voucher worth that money for a future cruise?

It is a future travel certificate that you purchase while onboard a cruise. Normally upon purchasing the certifcate you are given something… normally onboard credit with most cruise lines. Then when you are ready to book the next cruise, you give the certificate number rather than the normal deposit. Most cruise lines do this, and advertise it in the daily newsletters. Princess and NCL has the best offers with it however, as you receive onboard credit on the sailing you use it for as well.

@clover32512: Carnival doesn’t let you put it towards the deposit; the certificate can only be used to pay off the balance. Fiance and I are planning a cruise wedding and since we already had one we used it to pay down our balance. My Mom is going on a cruise next month and she and my MOH/Sister are buying another five between them so we can give them as Christmas gifts. The Carnival certificates can only be bought on the ships and they have to be used within 48 months.

 

With the Carnival program you pay $100 for the certificate and it goes towards a future cruise. To thank you for your loyalty and to encourage you to give them money while on a cruise, they give you OBC and the amount depends on the number of days. Since our cruise is seven days we get $100 in OBC for our cabin.

So if I buy it for $100, and I book a 3-5 day cruise, I get $50 off?  Doesn’t sound like a deal to me.  Am I missing something?

You buy the $100 certificate and they take $100 off your balance and give you $50 of on board credit to spend almost anyway you like. With out cruise, each certificiate takes $100 off what’s owed and each cabin gets $100 in OBC. So you get complimentary credit for your loyalty.
