Review the benefits of the Carnival Mastercard, calculate how many FunPoints you can earn based on your spend, and compare results against top rewards cards.

The Carnival Mastercard is a good choice for anyone that wants to earn a solid return spending directly with Carnival. The card also offers a refund on Carnival shore excursions which could be a big benefit of holding onto the card since it has no annual fee. As far as any other spending though, it comes up short since it only offers up to a 1.4% return on non-Carnival purchases.

Carnival FunPoints Value

Carnival FunPoints are worth 1 cent each on average but can range from 0.75 cents to 1.5 cents each based on the how you go about redeeming them. FunPoints can be used for statement credits, gift cards, onboard amenities, merchandise, and travel. The best value of 1.5 cents comes from redeeming them for Carnival Cruises that cost $1,500 or more and the worst value of 0.75 cents each comes from gift card redemptions.

For the full list of Funpoint redemption options and to calculate the cash value of Funpoints, jump over to the Carnival FunPoints Calculator. It will list how much your FunPoints are worth for each redemption!
