Carnival Cruise Line has introduced a more convenient way to pay for your next cruise, rolling out Carnival EasyPay.
The industry-first feature will allow travelers to pay for their cruise over a three-month period interest-free.
Payments will be automatically deducted from the credit card guests have on file on the same designated day over three consecutive months.
Carnival EasyPay users’ remaining balance will be split into three equal amounts after they make their deposit.
To be eligible for Carnival EasyPay guests must book early. They must make an initial deposit and the deposit due date must be at least 90 days before the final payment date.
The new feature comes at no extra cost and guests can sign up online, over the phone or through their travel agent.
Guests booking at Carnival.com can select the EasyPay option in the “How Would You Like to Pay” section. They can sign up or cancel Carnival EasyPay after the initial deposit is made at the “Manage My Booking” tab on Carnival’s website.
“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,” said Carnival Cruise Line president Christine Duffy in a statement accompanying Thursday’s announcement.
Carnival said the feature is available on most but not all sailings when guests book early enough.
