Carnival’s 72-Hour Sale to Offer Cash Back, Free Upgrades on a Variety of 2011-2012 Cruises


Today, Carnival Cruise Lines launches a 72-Hour Sale with cash back of up to $100 per stateroom and free upgrades on a wide variety of 2011-2012 “Fun Ship” voyages.

The promotion is available in conjunction with virtually all of the line’s three- to nine-day cruises to the Caribbean, Bahamas, Mexico and Alaska departing between May 2011 and February 2012 from a variety of North American homeports.  Bookings must be made April 26 – 28, 2011, to be eligible for the promotion.

The cash back option is provided in the form of a shipboard credit that can be redeemed once on board.  Guests will receive a shipboard credit of up to $50 per stateroom on three- to five-day cruises and up to $100 per stateroom on voyages of six days or longer. 

The complimentary upgrades are available within specific stateroom accommodation types (i.e., interior to interior, ocean view to ocean view, balcony to balcony, etc.).

The shipboard credit is automatically applied to guests’ on-board accounts when they board their cruise and can be redeemed toward a wide range of shipboard purchases including shore excursions, spa treatments, steakhouse reservations, gift shop items and more.  Any unused funds at the end of the cruise will be returned to guests on debarkation day in the form of a check.

The 72-Hour Sale promotion applies to new individual bookings for categories 4A and higher booked using the “Fun Select” fares. Certain restrictions apply.
