Carnival Cruise Lines New Loyalty Program -VIFP

Carnival Cruise Lines New Loyalty Program – VIFP

 

What is VIFP? It’s Carnival’s new past guest loyalty program. VIFP stands for Very Important Fun Person. I gave them A for the name! Very cute. When it comes to the Rewards I give them a B. They did need to improve the old Rewards program which was an F so huge improvement. I have always blogged about how Royal Caribbean has the best program and in my opinion still does. However, now Carnival has made it self a rival to be loyal. I do like how they went to a point program which is very similar to RCCL. I feel loyalty is so important in the travel industry. I am so glad Carnival is in the game! Well Done Carnival!

So what do you get?? Here is the list!!
