Carnival teams with Uplift for pay-over-time options

Carnival Cruise Line partnered with Uplift to offer flexible pay-over-time options to customers. Instead of paying for the cruise at the time of booking, travelers can use Uplift Pay Monthly to finance their trip and pay over time.

Monthly payments for up to 24 months

Plans with low monthly payments for up to 24 months are available. Carnival customers will be able to secure the ship, stateroom and itinerary they want while having clarity on the total cost with a predetermined payment schedule and amounts.

Available through any travel advisor, or via Carnival's call centers, Uplift Pay Monthly can be used by US residents for all voyages. Canadian residents will be able to use Uplift soon, as well.

Seamlessly integrated into booking process

Uplift Pay Monthly seamlessly integrates into Carnival's existing booking and payment processes. There are no prepayment penalties and travelers clearly see the total cost of their trip at the time of booking.

‘Travel has become a fundamental part of our lives, and today's consumers rightly demand more flexibility,’ Uplift President Rob Soderbery said. ‘We are thrilled to partner with Carnival Cruise Line and help more people enjoy a dream vacation.’
