Carnival Cruise Lines and Tropicana Entertainment have formed a partnership that will provide an array of cruise benefits to Tropicana's club members.

The companies said Carnival would offer complimentary or reduced-price Carnival cruises to guests enrolled in the Trop Advantage program at casinos in
Atlantic City, N.J.; Evansville, Ind.; Greenville, Miss.; Laughlin, Nev.; and Aruba, as well as the Belle of Baton Rouge Casino and Montbleu Resort Casino Spa in Lake Tahoe, Nev.

Carnival has similar strategic alliances with other gaming companies that operate mainly in markets outside of Las Vegas.

Marty Goldman, senior vice president of global casino operations at Carnival, said that to take advantage of the offers, Trop Advantage members can book them through any of Carnival’s reservations channels, include a travel agent.
