Carnival Cruise Line 

“Very Important Fun Person” Past Passenger Benefits

To earn VIFP Points, all you have to do is cruise. For every day you sail with Carnival, you earn one VIFP Point.

After cruising once with Carnival, repeat passengers receive a "Red" Sail & Sign card in recognition of their loyalty during cruises two through the accumulation of 24 points. All past passengers are entitled to:

  • A complimentary subscription to the online past passenger magazine that includes articles about ports of call, on board features, and ideas for future cruises.

  • Discounts on Carnival cruises that are only offered to past guests.

  • An onboard reception just for repeat passengers that is hosted by the captain and his staff  (on cruises of 5 days or longer).

  • Complimentary beverage at the Comedy Brunch.

  • Access to your past sailing history and past passenger offers on Carnival's web site at

Additionally, passengers who accumulate 25-74 points receive "Gold" status, 75-199 are designated "Platinum" and 200+ points earn "Diamond" recognition. All are invited to  a special VIFP party with complimentary drinks. Following are some of the extras Platinum and Diamond members can expect:

  • A special Carnival logo item

  • Guaranteed dining times & supper club reservations

  • Spa Carnival priority reservations & complimentary treatment upgrade

  • Complimentary wash & fold laundry service

  • Complimentary "chocolate delight" delivered to cabin one evening on a 5-day or longer cruise

  • Complimentary arcade tokens valued at $5 for members under age 18

  • Priority tender boarding

  • Priority embarkation & debarkation

An exclusive concierge desk for Platinum cardholders is located at the pursers information desk aboard every Carnival ship.

In addition, Carnival has expanded its guest recognition program to provide members with shipboard credits when they achieve a "milestone" cruise with the line. With the new shipboard credit benefit, "Platinum Milestone" members who sail on their 25th, 50th and 75th "Fun Ship" cruise will receive a shipboard credit representing 25, 50, or 75 percent of their cruise fare, respectively, for that particular voyage. Those sailing on their 100th "Fun Ship" cruise earn a complimentary Caribbean, Mexican Riviera or Alaska voyage of up to eight days in length. This new milestone cruise benefit is in addition to the wide range of amenities and privileges that "Platinum" cardholders already receive.

For more information call toll-free, 1-877-CCL-VIPS (1-877-225-8477). Shipboard credits and free cruises received for “milestone” cruises are non-transferable and non-refundable. Certain other restrictions apply.
