Cruise line member perks always have been a hot topic, but more so since last week’s feature, in which we suggested seven reasons you should be loyal to one cruise line. While a battle over which lines has the best rewards roiled the comments section, many of you wished for a chart that would easily distinguish them. (We put one together for you, of course.) But we also were curious to see how loyal you already are.
What we asked: How loyal are you to one cruise line?
What they said: Neck-and-neck for the lead were poll-takers who either leaned towards mostly cruising one line or have cruised multiple lines. Trailing behind were proud rewards members, and in last place were brand loyalty diehards. However, this doesn’t mean that most of our poll-takers aren’t reaping the benefits. In the comments section of last week’s feature, most of you admitted cruising multiple lines was simply a means of determining which line you were willing to commit to.
Our chart includes a brief range of benefits based on level of membership for seven major cruise lines. (So keep in mind, there are a lot of benefits you won’t see — we just couldn’t fit ‘em all!) For more details on each of these cruise lines’ loyalty programs, visit the Web sites for Carnival, Royal Caribbean, Norwegian, Princess, Celebrity, Holland America and Disney. Others discussed but not included in the chart were Azamara, Seabourn and P&O. For more information, check out our in-depth feature on loyalty programs.
