Quick Thoughts

25,000 Membership Rewards points is a very generous return on $1,000 of spend. Even if you’re booking a Carnival Cruise after taking advantage of the casino status matching games, there are still fees associated with those “free” cruises. You can prepay for gratuities, internet access, etc., so depending on how many of you are traveling and for how long, you could end up hitting the $1,000 spending threshold fairly easily.

I just booked a carnival cruise but the total expense was $720. What can I add to the trip to get to the $1000 and be able to redeem this offer ??


The offer seems to have been pulled for me and P2, anyone else is seeing this?


With the free cruise, even prepaying gratuity it’s only $500 total (not to mention the $200 OBC can be used for paying the gratuity). You’d like to add the drinks package, internet package, excursion and other things.


@Stephen what cards are you seeing this one?

Can this be used for gambling on Carnival cruise? I am not sure but there are some tricks where you can charge on credit card without any fees and then cash out. If anyone has details please share

Any insight if this is one of those offers that has a signup limit? Waiting on a card and wondering if this will disappear before I get a chance to grab it.


Greetings, I’m looking into the “casino status matching games”, as I already have the Wyndham CC, but when I try to sign up for the Caesar Rewards, I get this: “We are sorry, state regulations prohibit Missouri residents from signing up to our Caesars Rewards program. Please visit a Caesars Rewards desk on property to sign up to Caesars Rewards“. Does anybody know of any workarounds, besides moving out of Misery Missouri ?


Not sure where in MO you live, but in KC, you can get a physical card at Harrah’s Casino (which is part of Caesars).


Thank you ! I’m in ST Louis, we used to have Harrah’s but no more. It’s Hollywood now, not sure who owns them, but appreciate you giving me an idea to check who else Caeser owns and maybe we have something else that can match the status.


Thanks again !


Based on my experience, you’ll need to go to the casino to set up the account. They won’t do the match there (at least they didn’t at Harrah’s). But once you have the card, you can create an online account and submit the status match application online (which took a few days to go through).


Will do. Appreciate the insight, Eric!


Keep in mind this offer is NOT good through Travel Agent/ Travel Booking Websites, like other Cruise Offers have been. Only good through Carnival!!!!!


0/14 On both personal/AU cards for this offer. Hopefully it will populate out to one of them over the next day or so.


What type of cards you have?
