How do I add my VIFP to our booking?

I made a VIFP for myself. I log into my dad's VIFP and try to add my number next to my name. But it keeps telling me my number is not correct. I'm confused shouldn't I be able to get the points as well as my dad?

Hi and welcome to the forum!

You should log in under your own account; create one if you don't already have. You can then add the booking under your account/profile. Once that's done I believe when you sign in under your dad's number you can then edit the guest information and add your VIFP number there as well.

Hmmm it's still saying it's incorrect even if I enter it from my profile. It let me add the booking on my profile on the website.

I would call Carnival. Our last two cruises the computer decided I was a first time cruiser (each one did) and I had to call and get someone at Carnival to fix it. They are very nice about it and should be able to tell you the problem.

Good luck!

I will call them tomorrow. But if it shows up on my account I should get the points still right?

You will still get the points, but need to be sure and get Carnival to fix the issue. My RCI account somehow has two numbers attached. I can't see my first cruise with my login, but RCI has my sail days correct in their system.

I haven't had any success getting the accounts merged, so I understand your frustration.

Yes! Let us know what happens, please.


I tried it earlier today and it let me add the number. No idea why it didn't work before. But glad I was able to get it fixed.

Glad to see you got it working.

Sometimes, it's nothing more than a website glitch.

Hope you have a great cruise!!

Glad to read that the problem was solved.

Good for you. (smiley face)
