egghead's review: This is a very nice addition to the wallet of any current or prospective Carnival cruiser.

Loyalty (fun) points accrue at 1 per $1 spend in regular stores, and double that for any spending on board the Carnival cruise ships. Plus there is usually a generous bonus of 5000 points awarded right after your first purchase. The points can be used to get money off future cruises, and at 50 USD discount for every 5000 points they are quite generous about it. Or you can redeem them to buy goodies on board if you prefer.

There's no annual fee to pay on Carnival's Mastercard, and new users can enjoy 15 months of 0% APR on balances transferred within 45 days. The thing to watch for is that standard APR rates on transactions do vary quite dramatically, from 13.99% to 20.99% depending on your credit rating.

Overall this is a great card option for a group of people which may be niche but is not small by any means.

I've been thinking about getting a card that offers discounts on cruises now that my husband and I have more free time. This sounds like a really good deal and seems like you are able to accumulate points rather quickly.
