add YMMV. I didn't get this.

Just booked a cruise for 3 last week. This would have saved at least $200.


^ Incorrect. Clearly states it can be done with 3rd party travel agents.
I have done this deal several times previously.

(6) through your Travel Professional between 7/5/17 and 12/31/17.

Found this on two of my cards. Have used 3rd party agent for Carnival for many years and all payments using card always show as directly from Carnival.

Just confirmed this this morning for Springábreak 2018 cruise I booked today. Got the deal used confirmation quickly. áThis deal is on 2 of my cards, will be making final payment with other card in December.

Thanks for the $200 off my cruise OP!

All travel agents I have worked with just pass CC info onto cruise lines, who do the actual billing. If a travel agent charged your card they would be paying the CC processing fee, which would take a significant dent out of their commission.

The large cruise lines do hundreds of millions in CC charges a year and get a much better rate on CC processing fees than any TA would anyway.

I'm not sure if you sailed already, but if you haven't, you can always make an additional $500 payment and take advantage of the offer. Even if you had already paid in full, you could have purchased On Board Credit (OBC) and it likely would have worked for the offer, I know it did on HAL last time.

I just booked a HAL cruise yesterday and I will split my payment across multiple cards to get roughly 20% off my cruise. Used the first card today to pay the deposit, and got the email within seconds. The deposit was only $400, but I paid $500 to redeem the offer on the card. I'm planning to pay before final payment is due next year so I can use the offer before it expires at the end of the year.
