Carnival Giving Away 30 Vista Cruises


October is CLIA’s “National Plan A Cruise Month” and Carnival Cruise Line is offering agents a chance to win one of 30 free cruises aboard the new Carnival Vista, as well as a special month-long group booking promotion.

Both the free cruise giveaway and group booking opportunity are available from Oct. 1-31.

With “See the Carnival Vista Cruise Giveaway,” every individual booking made by agents in October will be entered to win one of 30 cruises aboard the Vista, set to debut next spring. Bookings must be made during the Oct. 1-31 period to qualify and winners will receive a cruise for two in a balcony stateroom. All qualified bookings must be submitted via a special section on, the line’s travel agent Internet portal.

Through the line’s group sales promotion, initial deposits are waived on select group cruises and agents can earn one free berth for every 10 full fare guests berthed (compared to the current policy of one free berth for every 15 full fare guests) on all voyages included in the promotion period. The offer is available on a variety of sailings between March 1, 2016 and April 30, 2017.

Also as part of CLIA’s “National Plan A Cruise Month,” Carnival is providing consumers with Early Saver rates plus a $50 per stateroom shipboard credit throughout the month of October on select sailings. In addition, throughout October, Carnival is offering Early Saver rates plus a $100 per stateroom shipboard credit on all of Carnival Vista’s 2016 European voyages.
