Carnival Cruise Line is now offering flexible pay-over-time options to U.S. guests through Uplift, and says the option will soon be available in Canada.
With Uplift, vacationers can budget for the cruise they want by making monthly payments for up to 24 months. Carnival says its guests will be able to secure the ship, stateroom and itinerary of their dreams while having clarity on the total cost with a predetermined payment schedule and payment amounts.
"Carnival is already the most affordable vacation in cruising, and with Uplift, guests can enjoy the vacation of a lifetime by spreading the cost of their trip into affordable monthly payments," said Ken Tate, chief commercial officer for Carnival Cruise Line. "Uplift's unique zero money down option with up to 24 set monthly payments and its pure focus on travel made Uplift a natural choice for Carnival to partner with."
Uplift Pay Monthly is integrated 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.
"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."
