Carnival Cruise Line is partnering with Uplift to offer flexible pay-over-time options to Carnival guests. Instead of paying for the cruise at the time of booking, Uplift Pay Monthly gives guests the option to finance their trip and pay over time.
Cruisers can budget for their trip by making monthly payments for up to 24 months. According to the press release, Carnival’s guests will be able to book the ship, stateroom and itinerary of their choice while having clarity on the total cost with a predetermined payment schedule and payment amounts.
Available through any travel advisor, carnival.com, or via Carnival’s call centers, Uplift Pay Monthly can be used by U.S. residents for all Carnival ships and itineraries. Canadian residents will be able to use Uplift soon, but no date has been announced.
According to Carnival’s chief commercial officer Ken Tate, “Carnival is already the most affordable vacation in cruising, and with Uplift, guests can enjoy the vacation of a lifetime by spreading the cost of their trip into affordable monthly payments. Uplift’s zero money down option with up to 24 monthly payments and its pure focus on travel made Uplift a natural choice for Carnival to partner with.”
Uplift Pay Monthly seamlessly integrates into Carnival’s existing booking engine and payment processing, and guests should expect to receive an instant decision on approval of the loan. There are no prepayment penalties and guests clearly see the total cost of their trip at the time of booking, enabling them to easily budget for their dream cruise vacation.
