Will my Carnival Mastercard FunPoints expire after a certain time period if they go unused?
FunPoints will expire and be forfeited 5 years from the date of issuance.

Where do I book my cruise purchase and how do I redeem points?

With FunPoints you control where you purchase your cruise and when you redeem your FunPoints. You no longer have to redeem points at time of cruise purchase because booking your cruise and redeeming points are separate transactions. Book when it’s convenient, and then choose to redeem FunPoints when it’s convenient.

Step 1-- Book your cruise.  

Step 2 -- Redeem points when it’s convenient (up to 180 days after the purchase transaction posts to your account). Log in to access your account at and choose the redemption option that you prefer.

  • Redeem for full or partial statement credit
  • Redeem for onboard amenities – orders will be accepted up to 15 days prior to your cruise departure date.

Mastercard is a registered trademark, and the circles design is a trademark of Mastercard International Incorporated.


Earn 20,000 FunPoints® after your first purchase. That's enough to redeem for a $200 statement credit towards your next cruise.
