Military and Veteran Discounts on Carnival Cruise Deals

Carnival Cruise Line Military Cruise Deals Discount

How can you get a DOUBLE Military DISCOUNT on your Carnival cruise?

Carnival offers military and Veteran discounts on more of their cruises than any of the other cruise lines.

If Carnival is offering their own military rate, you will get that rate for as many cabins as they allow, plus our discounts and benefits – so you’ll get a DOUBLE DISCOUNT on your cruise.

PLUS Bring the whole family for a Group Cruise on Carnival!


How much is the Carnival military discount?

Carnival’s military discount is often $25 to $250 per person less than the rate available to civilians.  Our Carnival military discount is a percentage off of that amount and is applied on top of Carnival’s military discount. So our rate is ALWAYS lower than Carnival’s lowest rate.

So the total value of the Carnvial military discount could total around $200 per person.  However, the total of the discount depends upon the price of the cruise.  So it could be more or less than that.


Today’s Special Deals on Carnival Cruise Line include:

  • FREE bar credit for every Carnival cruise cabin booked with Military Cruise Deals in November!  ($25 to $75 depending on length of cruise)
  • Get reduced deposits starting from $75
  • Get Free cabin upgrades! 
  • Reduced Military, Senior, Resident, and past passenger rates on select sailings

How many cabins can qualify for Carnival’s military and Veteran discount rate – if there is one?

Carnival only allows their discounted military rate to be applied to the single cruise cabin which contains the member of the military.

Twice a year (usually doing May and November) they offer a promotion that allows 2 additional cabins at the military rate.  That will be happening this Nov. 2018.  We’ll announce it as soon as it happens.  So stay tuned.

Our online discount will apply to as many cabins as you like!

A. All About Fun Points for Groups on Carnival

The benefits or perks offered on Carnival group cruises are allocated based on something Carnival calls ‘fun points’, also know as ‘group amenity points’. 

The amount of ‘fun points’ that your group cabins are entitled to depends on the cruise selected and the number of passengers in the group. The amount will be 0 to 4. 

Once you have selected a specific sailing, and know what type of cabins your group wants, and how many in your group – we’ll look into Carnival’s system to see how many ‘fun points’ you’ll get.

These fun amenity points can be used to get onboard credit for each cabin in the group or various other gifts*.

Using the amenity points, your group may then choose ONE option:

a. either the onboard credit amount that applies for your sailing, 

b. one of the other gift choices, *

Whatever you select then applies to all cabins in the group. 

Here’s are some graphs, provided by Carnival, which show what your fun points can get for you, and how many fun point each gift costs, based on the length of the sailing.

Whatever you do, don’t show this to every member of your group, and ask them which they would prefer!!

Because everyone in the group has to have the same fun point benefit – they won’t all get their preference if they prefer different things. A leader of the group has to choose for everyone! Please…take our advice on this.

B. The Tour Conductor Credit(s) applied to Carnival Group Cruises

Each group will get one tour conductor credit per 8 cabins.

This tour conductor credit can be used to give 1 passenger a FREE cruise fare! 

This credit begins applying once all 8 are booked and the amount of the tour conductor credit is based on average net fare code of the 8 cabins.

This means, if most of the cabins booked are inside cabins, the amount of the tour conductor credit will be one inside cruise fare.

They will still have to pay taxes and port charges though.

You could choose to distribute the amount of this free cruise fare to all passengers in the group, thus lowering everyone’s fare by a small amount.

But we recommend this credit be allocated to the person in your group who’s going through the most trouble to organize the group. Because, honestly folks, organizing a group takes a lot of work. Some groups especially are like herds of feral cats…getting them all going in the same direction is impossible.


C. Our military discount

In addition to all the group benefits provided by Carnival, any groups booked with Military Cruise Deals will receive an additional discount off the cruise fare. Thus, everyone in your group will PAY LESS than if they had booked directly with Carnival.


Want a group shore excursion exclusively for members of your group?

If your group has more than 50 guests, Carnival will customize group shore excursions for you as well. 

Must be coordinated through the group event planning department.
