Cruise Rewards - Earning, Cash Value, and Calculators

Cruise Rewards Points Calculators

Cruise Lines and Rewards Programs

Calculators for earning points and determining the cash value of points based on redemption for cruise lines. Some page also cover program details.

Earning points within cruise line rewards programs can be easy for those who find themselves consistently exploring the seven seas. But for those who only cruise once or twice a year, earning enough points for a free cruise will take a lifetime. To make matters worse, most cruise line credit cards offer very little points outside of purchases made with the cruise line itself. Some even offer little to no benefits for cruising! While you will not find much in terms of earning points, there are a few cruise line cards that are worth taking a glance at.

Cruise Line Programs

You can click on any of the cruise lines below to learn about the program (in a nutshell). Most of the cruise lines listed only features the credit card point calculator which will calculate how many cruise points you can earn and the cash value of the card.

Cruise Line Credit Card Point Calculators

Listed below are all of the cruise line credit cards featured on the site. There's not many cards to choose from, but thankfully you can usually earn a better return using bank rewards credit cards to pay for your cruise.

Carnival Mastercard Compare
Compare credit cards side by side based on spend, benefits and fees.

Each cruise line credit card has it's own point calculator which will calculate how much points you can earn based on monthly/yearly spend. Each point calculator will also calculate the cash value of the cruise line credit card based on spend, how much each card benefit is worth to you, and the annual fee. You can then compare the results side-by-side any card featured on the site including points and miles earning cards. Any spend you enter into a credit card calculator will roll over to all credit card calculators on the site.
