Affinity Partners with Carnival

A partnership has been formed between Affinity Gaming and Carnival Cruise Line, with players earning rewards starting on July 1, 2015. The rewards will affect Affinity Gaming’s highest Player’s Club tier, and will allow players to turn points into complimentary cruises, while mid-tier players can earn discounts on cruises.

“Our partnership with Carnival Cruise Line is a win-win for all parties involved,” said Affinity Gaming Chief Operating Officer Michael Silberling.

Marty Goldman, Carnival’s senior vice president of global casino operations said, “Affinity Gaming LLC is an excellent partner for this venture as they share Carnival Cruise Line’s commitment to outstanding service and hospitality.”
