Today marks the first day of the third of five weeks of Daily Getaway Deals with a deal from Carnival Cruise Line. The Daily Getaways is an annual sale put on by the US Travel Association that acts as their annual fundraiser. There is one new offer available at 1PM Eastern per weekday for five weeks, and those offers can vary from discounted hotel points, to theme park tickets, to rental car points, to hotel packages, and more.


Today’s offering is a $100 Carnival Cruise Line Gift Card available for $85. This gift card can be used towards the purchase of a Carnival cruise, online pre-purchases of shore excursions, spa experiences and Fun Shop gifts or redeemed onboard toward the Sail & Sign account for gifts, drinks, and fun.

The gift card has to be redeemed before November 30, 2018, though you can redeem for cruises/excursions that take place beyond that date as long as the gift card is used by that date.

The maximum number of gift cards you can purchase is three, for a potential savings of $45 on your Carnival Cruise expenses. That is not an earth shattering total, but every dollar counts, so if it helps you save a few dollars then go for it! 

This is a new Daily Getaways offering for 2017, so while there are 2,500 gift cards available I really have no clue how quickly they will sell. I would guess it won’t be an instant sell out, but that is just my guess.

Will you be purchasing a $100 Carnival gift card for $85 today in order to save a little on your Carnival cruise?

  1. I’m going for 6 (three for myself and three as an agent of my wife). Any tips on that? I’m going to use 2 different PCs, 2 different emails, 2 different CCs…

    There is some concern about the Ts&Cs of these on Cruise Critic. There is a statement that only one can be used at the time of booking, with is not typical for GCs per the posters on that thread. I am not too concerned about that as we book a fair number of cruises and these should be applicable for onboard spending, if there is some issue with using them to pay for the cruise.

    • Mikes, I think your plan should work fine. As far as the T&Cs, I’m sure those on Cruise Critic are much more familiar with Carnival gift cards than me, but this makes it looks pretty simple to use to me….
      “Gift Cards are redeemable at participating Carnival Cruise Line® ships for passenger travel to pay for ticket purchases and as deposit to an onboard account.” I don’t see why you couldn’t load them to an on-board account if nothing else.

    • Ha ha – I have never done a cruise of any sort so I really can’t contribute to that conversation. However, I can say I hope to do one some day some how. I hear good things about the Disney cruises…

      • I have done many cruises with my family since I was a little child. I can guarantee you that there are cruises and then there are “cruises”. It is called Carnival for a reason if you know what I mean. :))))

      • I have heard very good things about Disney also. Let’s face it: Disney knows how to create a fantastic entertainment experience. The issue (for me) is the price point: a Disney cruise will cost double or more than the Carnival equivalent cruise/port/cabin combination. No doubt it’s a better experience, just I haven’t yet convinced myself it is worth the money. We’ll be doing Orlando first, most certainly.

  2. It sold out in 30 minutes. I was waiting with both browsers open and got 6 with no apparent issues. I see the transactions pending on Chase’s site.

    AARP and Verizon also reportedly have discount Carnival GCs intermittently, but at 10% off. Carnival has also done for Father’s Day, which was actual ‘spend X, get 10% of X additional’, so more like 9% off. Maybe they’ll do it for Mother’s Day too. though I don’t recall ever seeing that.

    Still, it appears that 15% off (and still coded as travel, I hear) is the best it’s been.
