All About the Military and Veteran Discounts on Carnival

We love Carnival because they offer military and veteran discounts on more of their cruise sailings 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.

Today's Special Deals on Carnival Cruise Line include:

  • Up to $50 onboard credit and 2 for 1 deposits on 2-5 day sailings

  • More=Merrier discounted rates for 3+ people in a cabin

  • Free upgrades on sailings – Fall of 2018

  • Reduced Military, Senior, Resident, and past passenger rates on select sailings

How much is Carnival’s military and veteran discount?

Carnival’s military discount is often $25 to $250 per person less than the rate available to civilians. So military folks can really save a lot of money if they can book those cruises when the military discount is available. Carnival only applies a military discount to select cruises, not all cruises all the time. So their military discounts can appear and disappear without warning!

How many cabins can be booked at the Carnival cruise military and veteran discount rate?

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 they offer a promotion that allows 2 additional cabins at the military rate. Our online discount will apply to as many cabins as you like!
