Instead of paying for the cruise at the time of booking, Uplift Pay Monthly gives Carnival’s guests the freedom to finance their trip and pay over time.

With Uplift, vacationers can budget for their ideal trip by making low monthly payments for up to 24 months. Carnival’s guests will be able to secure the ship, stateroom and itinerary while having clarity on the total cost with a predetermined payment schedule and payment amounts.

Available through any travel advisor, or via Carnival’s call centers, Uplift Pay Monthly can be used by U.S. residents for all of Carnival’s exciting voyages – from short getaways to the Bahamas and Mexico to longer vacations to Alaska, Hawaii and Europe. Canadian residents will be able to use Uplift soon, as well.

How it works

Uplift Pay Monthly seamlessly integrates into Carnival’s existing booking and payment processes, making it easy for guests to receive an instant decision. 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.

"Our mission is to make travel more accessible, affordable and rewarding for everyone,” said Uplift president Rob Soderbery. “Travel has become a fundamental part of our lives, and today’s consumers rightly demand more flexibility. We are thrilled to partner with Carnival Cruise Line and help more people enjoy a dream vacation.”
