Carnival Spirit in Sydney

VIFP Club is Carnival's guest recognition program. As a VIFP (Very Important Fun Person) Club member, you earn points for the number of days on Carnival cruises.

Enrollment is automatic but you need to activate your membership online. If you're a past passenger, the program recognises your loyalty to Carnival with increasing benefits the more you cruise. You can even join if you've never cruised with Carnival before, because some offers are available before booking, such as members-only rates and promotions.

Members earn one VIFP Point for every day at sea, starting with a Blue Card for your first Carnival cruise before earning more points to upgrade to Red, Gold, Platinum and Diamond.

As you progress through the levels, you may receive free bottled water; tier pins; party invitations; priority check-in, embarkation and disembarkation in select ports; and more. All members receive an e-newsletter and notification of special offers from Carnival.

VIFP Club members automatically move from one level to the next level. Passengers graduating into a new level during a cruise will receive the benefits of the new level they are graduating into from the beginning of the cruise.
