Review: Terrible, just terrible. Those who practically live on Carnival may eke out value on Carnival purchases. The “FunPoints®” are not only idiotically named but are not part of a true rewards program as Carnival does not have one; this ‘fun’ only exists in the credit card. No annual fee but no special benefits.

None of the cruise ship cards seems to have any real “value”
