The drawback to the FunPoints program is that it takes a long time to build up your rewards due to only earning 1 FunPoint per $1 spent on most purchases. In order to build up enough points to pay for a $700 cruise, you would need 70,000 FunPoints which will require a minimum of $70,000 in spend!!!
If you want to earn rewards redeemable towards Carnival and other cruise lines in half the time, the best rewards program for doing so will be the Capital One Venture Rewards program.
Venture miles can be redeemed for 1 cent in value towards any kind of travel. This includes cruises, airfare, hotels, parking, tolls, car rentals, and much more. This gives you the flexibility to use your points how you want to.
On top of that, the intro bonuses for Venture Rewards credit cards can be as high as 75,000 miles which is equal to $750 in value towards Carnival or any other kind of travel. That's significantly more than what the Carnival World Mastercard offers.
I highly recommend checking out the credit cards offered in the Venture Rewards program if you're looking to build enough rewards to earn at least one to two free cruises annually.

Are Carnival FunPoints worth earning?
Carnival FunPoints are only useful for those who spend a large sum of money directly with Carnival and their cruise line partners. If this is not the case, the Carnival FunPoints program will be far from the best option.
How many Carnival FunPoints do you need for a free cruise?
The amount of FunPoints will vary. If your cruise is less than $1,500, divide the cost by 0.01 to find out how many FunPoints you will need. If it's $1,500 or more, divide by 0.015. For example, you will need 70,000 FunPoints for a $700 cruise ($700 / 0.01 = 70,000).
