Save a little money with Carnival gift cards
The best way to save money on a cruise is to use gift cards to pay for your cruise fare and all of your onboard spending. You can get discounted gift cards through several methods, or buy them at cost and get other perks such as gas discounts.
One thing to keep in mind is that if you pay with something with a gift card and then cancel your order, your money is refunded to you via another gift card that will be shipped to you from Carnival via FedEx. Gift cards are non-refundable.
If you’re a RedCard member at Target, you can use your RedCard and save 5% on gift cards every day.
