Royal Caribbean International

Crown & Anchor Society Past Passenger Benefits

To enroll as a Crown & Anchor Society member, passengers need to have cruised at least one time with Royal Caribbean International. The more you cruise with Royal Caribbean, the more you are rewarded with benefits and extras. Now, with the launch of the Crown & Anchor Society Youth Program, even the kids benefit.

Due to the surge in Crown & Anchor Society membership, Royal Caribbean has instituted program changes in 2009.

Member Benefits Changes effective on sailings on or after Sept 1, 2009: Crown & Anchor members will continue to receive their most valued benefits such as discounts on cruises, savings certificates and priority boarding and departure. Platinum and Diamond members also will continue to receive discounts on balcony and suite category staterooms including the recently introduced upgraded services and amenities for suite guests.

The changes include:
-- A new Ultimate Value Booklet with coupons for various onboard amenities.
-- An upgraded wine tasting event at a special price
-- A new exclusive nightly event for Diamond and Diamond Plus members to meet and mingle with other fellow members on ships without a Diamond Lounge. This will feature complimentary wine, champagne and a happy hour discount of 25% off all other beverages.
-- A continental breakfast with a crew member available to provide services such as obtaining ice show tickets and other assistance.

Due to limited capacity, the Concierge Lounge has not been able to accommodate the growing membership, challenging Royal Caribbean's ability to provide the optimum experience for guests. Therefore the Concierge Lounge will now be accessible to guests staying in Grand Suites and above and Diamond Plus guests only. Diamond Members cruising on Freedom Class ships, Oasis of the Seas, and Allure of the Seas will continue to be able to experience exclusive access to a dedicated Diamond Lounge on these ships, which feature a complimentary 'happy hour' from 5-8:30pm daily. On ships without a Diamond Lounge, an exclusive nightly Diamond Event will be hosted.
