It's my understanding the certificates are only good for the face value "towards" (not the total) amount of the required deposit. Then the bonus is with getting the on board credit. Now, there is some conflicting information as to whether the required deposit will be discounted at time of booking, or you have to send it in after paying the full amount of the deposit and then they credit it back.

One of you, Jim or Tim, should call them and ask today and see what they say. Well, actually you both should call and see if you both get the same answer.

I found this flyer.

Also be aware that they can not be used with the Military Discount or Interline Discount.

But they CAN be used with all other discounts and you get it in addition to the Stockholder's OBC.

We bought 10 on the Freedom and have used 3 without an issue.

While the presentation may say "applies to the downpayment"....the earlier poster is correct. It is applied to the final payment...NOT the downpayment.

Thanks LHP! I think I added to the confusion by saying toward the deposit. Tim C was correct. They go towards payments after the deposit is made.

I am frustrated with this at the moment! I also purchased a couple of these certificates. I came home from my last cruise, and booked my new one and received the Welcome Home Credit, and now when I try to use my Certificate, they are telling me I can't use both the welcome home credit (which is $50), AND the certificate. WHY??? I am trying to fight it with my PVP, and am still hoping I can get both. Have you run into this problem?

Other cruise lines have rules against double dipping as well. You use the better of the two offers.

Hi lharry, Just curious as to when you booked the cruise originally? The reason being is because Carnival was suppose to stop honoring the Welcome Home Promotion August 9th 2009.
