All AAdvantage members earn one mile per dollar spent on Carnival cruises, and AAdvantage cardholders can earn two miles per dollar spent. This deal is available on cruises departing through Aug. 31, 2021.

Miles are awarded per stateroom, but only one passenger per booking can earn the rewards. AAdvantage cardholders must book the cruise through American Airlines Cruises using their card to get the additional mile per dollar spent.
