In its ongoing efforts to provide guests with a greater variety of reasons to stay and play - such as a wider range of choices and fun experiences - Carnival Cruise Line has refreshed its 'Carnival Players Club' casino program to give members new unique offers and experiences, both on board and ashore. This article is copyright 2018 The Best Customer Guide.

The program includes a new "Dealer's Choice" offer with exclusive cruise savings opportunities, complimentary in-casino drinks for qualified guests, and invitation-only Carnival Players Club events.

With this refresh, Carnival has also upgraded several new programs to offer guests an enhanced cruise and casino experience with value-added benefits, privileges and exclusive events based on level of play:

  • Getaway: a great way for players looking for a short vacation, Getaway is available on three- to five-day cruises with extras like in-stateroom gifts, priority check-in and luggage delivery, complimentary in-casino drinks to qualified players, and a chance to win up to $10,000 in free play, cash and prizes.
  • Premier: for our more avid casino players, Premier is available on cruises of six days or longer and offers all the benefits of the Getaway program plus a complimentary pre-cruise gift, priority debarkation, a special Welcome Aboard party, invitation-only casino tournaments, and a chance at $20,000 in free play, cash and prizes every cruise.
  • Ultra: loyalty matters, and our most loyal players will receive Ultra invites, which include all of the benefits of the Premier program plus a chance at $100,000 in cash and gifts on board.
  • Elite: reserved for our very best players, the Elite program provides exclusive experiences and perks like complimentary parking or local airport pick-up and drop-off, early stateroom access, complimentary drinks throughout the cruise, a free shore excursion and Wi-Fi, special Welcome Aboard and sailaway parties, and VIFP Platinum status for the entire voyage.

In addition to new branding and a new logo that mirrors the line's recently launched marketing campaign, the cruise line has also re-written the Carnival Players Club web site (http://www.carnivalplayersclub.com) to offer helpful information for its members.
