Carnival Cruise Line is known for introducing industry first ideas in cruising, so this really shouldn’t come as a big surprise. The popular cruise line has recently launched a new payment option for vacationers – Carnival EasyPay – a series of three installments designed for guests to pay over time.
What is Carnival EasyPay
I know what you’re thinking and no, there is no added interest. You’ll make your cruise deposit using Carnival EasyPay and following that, the balance will be divided into three equal payments and automatically charged to the card on file every 30 days for a three month period. No need to remember to go make a payment or worry that you’ve missed an important deadline. Easy peasy, right?
It’s super easy to sign up for the service by heading over to carnival.com or calling Carnival. Additionally, if you are a travel agent, you can register to take and process EasyPay payments from clients.
“A Carnival cruise is already the most affordable and value-packed vacation there is and with Carnival EasyPay we’re making budgeting and paying for a cruise even easier and more convenient,” said Christine Duffy, president of Carnival Cruise Line. “Rather than having to remember to pay for their cruise, Carnival EasyPay provides guests with peace of mind knowing that their payment is being processed automatically. Carnival EasyPay certainly lives up to its name!”
As with anything, there are a few things to know about EasyPay. In order to be considered eligible for this service, cruisers must make a deposit on the cruise fare at least 90 days prior to the final payment date. Thirty days later guests may expect the first installment to be charged with the remaining two following in 30-day increments as well.
There is no charge for Carnival EasyPay. When you get to the point that says: “How Would You Like to Pay” when booking on carnival.com, simply choose Carnival EasyPay. Use the “Manage My Booking” tab on the web site to sign up or cancel this payment service.
