The Royal Caribbean Crown & Anchor Loyalty Program At-A-Glance

The Crown & Anchor Society is a six-tier program open to all passengers. The program is based on a point system, where members receive One point for each day cruised with Royal Caribbean. Cruisers earn additional points when booking suites or sailing solo in a double-occupancy cabin.

Royal Caribbean Cruise Line

The Crown & Anchor Society is free to join, and even first-time Royal Caribbean cruisers get rewards. Benefits start with priority check-in, breakfast in the line’s private departure lounge, exclusive member events, and access to the members-only section of Royal’s website. At higher levels, perks also include:

  • Behind-the-scene tours
  • Top-tier member events
  • Priority waitlists for sold-out excursions and spa appointments
  • Free cruise certificates

*Royal Caribbean also offers kids the same member status as the parent upon completing their first cruise.

*Not available at the Pinnacle Club level

The most significant disadvantage of The Crown & Anchor Society is that points are only applied after your sailing is completed. So you won’t graduate to the next level until your next cruise.

Mom and I have cruised Carnival most often and have hit Platinum over there. We are now broadening our horizons and will probably not hit any significant level on any other line, but we will certainly enjoy trying to get there!
