Question about loading gift cards at the kiosks

Recommended Posts

You can also have them applied to your account at check in. Why stand in line twice?

 

If you are on a ship that has the S&S cards in your mailbox on the ship, you need to go to a second line for cash accounts or to add gift cards. As it stands, you only go through the one line before security and then either wait in the lounge or if they are boarding, directly on the ship. They will not take your gift cards there.

I know this is an old thread, but I didn't want to make a new one.

 

Anyway, has anyone successfully added prepaid gift cards (like prepaid visa; not carnival gift cards) at the kiosk. Or even in person with guest services? I have three cards I got as rebates and I'd love to be able to use them for my S&S.

 

Thanks!

I doubt you'll be able to do it at a kiosk. Technically, we're supposed to be able to add Carnival gift cards from the kiosks, but a majority of people report that it never works. If those don't work, it's not likely that prepaid cards will. But you can add them at Guest Services. The only ones they don't accept are prepaid cards issue by American Express and Optima.

 

Another option it to use them to buy Cruise Cash. If you can't do it from the online FunShops, then you can call them. Cruise Cash will be on your S&S account when you board. It's non-refundable, but if you have some left at the end, you can add it to a slot machine in the casino, spin once or twice, then cash out.

I've been using the discounted (AARP or Verizon) gift cards for the last few years. LOVE the 10 % off my cruises and onboard spending. However, whenever I've attempted to load them at the kiosks, it hasn't worked. This is on 5 different ships! I end up at Guest Services, and they load them for me instead.

Ditto for me too.
