What's the deal with loyalty programs?by Kristen O'Neal | October 12, 2016
1. Carnival Cruise Line
Name: VIFP Club
Points: Every day you sail earns you one VIFP point.
Cruise Discount: Members get access to exclusive discounts on select sailings.
Extras: Carnival’s VIFP Club ranges from Blue (first sailing) to Diamond (200 or more points). Perks for the lower levels include small things like Carnival luggage tags and pins, and the real bonuses begin when you hit Platinum (75 to 199 points). Those include priority check-in and boarding, plus first dibs at onboard reservations. Diamond guests get additional, one-time perks, such as two free guests or a cabin upgrade.
