Canadian purchase of Carnival Gift Cards

I am Canadian with a US dollars Visa Card. Other Canadians have purchased Cruise gift cards without a problem. I am trying to get to the purchase page but cannot become a member. I was told you do not have to be a member to purchase Carnival, Holland America gift cards. You just need to have a US dollars credit card. Does anyone have the answer to this question?  Please help.

When I look at the cards available, it appears that you need to be a member to purchase the Carnival gift cards.  It doesn't say that for the Hollard America cards.  Have you tried buying the Holland Amerca cards?  It doesn't say you need to me a member for the Princess cards either.  So looks like you would need to sail on Holland or Princess to use cards purchased here. 


Just con't buy a Holland America card and try to use it on Carnival.  That won't work and there are no refunds on cards purchased.
