In honor of Veterans Day, Carnival Cruise Line is offering special savings, free upgrades, and shipboard credits during November to active and retired members of the U.S. and Canadian Armed Forces.

The promotion, which provides a $50 onboard credit per cabin, a free two-category upgrade, and 50 percent reduced deposit, can be combined with Carnival’s highly attractive military rates. In addition, guests who qualify for the promotion can book up to two additional staterooms with the same bonuses and pricing.

The promotion can be booked from Nov. 1-14, 2016, and is applicable for a wide range of three- to 15-day cruises departing between January 2017 and April 2018.

The military rates promotion continues Carnival’s ongoing efforts at recognizing and supporting the military. In January, Carnival launched Honor.Family.Fun. -- a year-long partnership with seven-time GRAMMY Award–winning superstar Carrie Underwood and Operation Homefront, the national nonprofit that builds strong, stable, and secure military families.

The campaign helps raise funds for Operation Homefront and culminates with a special invitation-only concert for service men and women starring Underwood aboard the new Carnival Vista in New York later this week.   Following the concert, Carnival Vista will officially be named by godmother Miss USA Deshauna Barber, the first woman serving in the U.S. military to hold the title.

The promotion is valid for individual bookings only. Military personnel must provide proof of service. Eligible military personnel must sail to take advantage of this offer.  Upgrades are automatically assigned at the time of booking and are based on availability in similar categories only (interior to interior, ocean view to ocean view, balcony to balcony).  Certain other restrictions apply.
