The Crown & Anchor Society is a complimentary cruise loyalty program available to passengers after their first Royal Caribbean cruise of three nights or longer. The six-tier program is structured on a point system, in which members receive one cruise point for every night sailed onboard a Royal Caribbean International ship, with double the points for suite bookings.

The best part of the Crown & Anchor Society is that benefits kick in at the lowest level with priority check-ins, breakfast in the line's private departure lounge, exclusive member parties and matching status on other Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd. lines, including Celebrity and Azamara. Higher-level perks include behind-the-scene tours, top-tier member events, priority waitlists for sold-out excursions and spa appointments and -- eventually -- free cruise certificates.

As an additional perk for families, Royal Caribbean also offers kids the same member status as the parent upon completing his or her first cruise. (This benefit is not available at the Pinnacle Club level.)

The biggest drawback of the Crown & Anchor Society is that points are not applied until after your sailing is completed. So if you are graduating from one level to the next, you will not reap the rewards of a higher-level tier until your next cruise.
