Carnival Gift Card Program

Published 03/13/2015 09:17 PM   |    Updated 04/06/2022 03:32 PM

Carnival Cruise Line launched its first-ever gift card program on December 5th, 2012.

The Carnival Gift Card is a pre-paid gift card similar to a gift certificate that can be used as payment toward a cruise booking on our ships, online pre-purchase of shore excursions, spa experiences, in-room gifts and shopping or toward your onboard Sail & Sign spending account, once you are on board. Carnival Gift Cards are not accepted on ships that sail with a functional onboard currency other than USD; therefore, Carnival Gift Cards will not be redeemable or sold on board ships while operating in Australia as the functional onboard currency is AUD; in addition, Carnival Gift Cards cannot be used toward the payment of a cruise operating in Australia even when purchased using USD currency.  

Carnival Gift Cards may be purchased online at, on board our fleet or at approximately 9,000 retail locations. The gift card may be redeemed on,, by calling Carnival (1-800-CARNIVAL) or on board. It is more convenient than cash or a paper gift certificate.

Please note: All Carnival Gift Cards require a PIN number. The PIN number is located either on the back of the card under a scratch off or sent in separate email for redemption.
