I just booked a cruise for two. I was short some points and it cost me an additional $70+ to get a 5 day "free" cruise the charge was for an upgrade). We got the card in 2006 and just now had enough points for a free cruise. And believe that card gets well used! I will say the person I spoke to, to make reservations was very professional and helpful. Once we take this cruise we are looking for a card that we get cash back. If I were you I would look around and see what other cards are available. This one isn't the greatest.Similar situation here except we're paying $400 for a 7-day cruise, with a balcony. Prompt friendly service for booking. Not going to use this card again unless absolutely necessary. (especially after getting a letter that the interest rate will now be 30%, which really shouldn't matter since it gets paid off) Now using a card that gives us CASH.
thanks for the info. I will check into it.Excuse me mam, but understand that neither the RCCI or the Seamiles card are anywhere near the best reward card. Get one that offers you a CASH reward that you can spend any old way that you wish. Google "rewards credit cards" and there are a ton of them that are better than these cruise rewards cards.
one more question... with the RCCL card, is it only RCCL cruises you can take? or can you take any cruise?
My heading says it all. We are considering getting a Carnival Credit card, and we were wondering how many points you need to book a cruise? and how many points per dollar you get with the card?Penny:
Why cancel before using the miles? Is there an anual fee due? If you don't pay interest what is the difference. I suspect it is just the point of it.Exactly. I thought it was crazy that they were charging me 15% when I got the card cuz that is the highest interest rate I've ever paid but I knew it would be used for purchases without carrying a balance so the interest rate didn't matter too much. But when they raised it for no reason to 25%, what would happen if I couldn't pay off the balance that month. No way. Not risking it. I have another card I could use that has just as much available credit and the APR is under 10%. It is the point that they just raised it since last month, without warning, without justification. I only noticed it when I logged onto my account online.
