Couple_at_the_railNew Feature Allows Guests to Pay for their Carnival Cruise In Three Convenient Monthly Installments

They mean, “Layaway”! Well, that’s not exactly what they’re calling it, but we sure recognize this awesome means of paying. Book now, pay over time and travel later!

In a cruise industry first, Carnival Cruise Line has launched a convenient new pay-over-time program that allows guests to pay for their cruise in three monthly installments.

Carnival EasyPay is designed as a truly hassle-free vacation payment option as it allows guests’ cruise payments to be automatically deducted from the credit card on file and applied to their current balance interest-free over a three-month period.

Guests simply make their initial cruise deposit and then the balance of their cruise is charged in three equal payments which are taken out automatically on the same designated day for three consecutive months. Guests can either register for the program at or via the line’s call centers. Travel agents can also sign up for Carnival EasyPay to process payments on behalf of their 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!”

Guests must make a required deposit on their cruise fare to be eligible for Carnival EasyPay. Additionally, the deposit due date must be at least 90 days before the final payment date. The first installment is charged to guests’ credit card 30 days from the date of the deposit with two additional monthly installments thereafter.
