What if my Crown and Anchor Society number is not on the reservation when I booked my cruise?

You must have your Crown and Anchor Society member number added to the reservation in order to take advantage of this offer.

Do all Crown & Anchor Society tiers qualify for the double points offer?

Yes, all existing members qualify for this offer, including Gold, Platinum, Emerald, Diamond, Diamond Plus, and Pinnacle members.

Do I have to rebook if I already have a cruise booked to get the offer?

No, you do not have to rebook because this offer is automatically applied to existing bookings.

You just need to ensure you have your Crown and Anchor Society member number on your cruise reservation.

Just like an existing booking, the points will be applied upon the completion of the cruise vacation.
