Royal Caribbean unveiled an unprecedented offer a few weeks ago when it announced it will offer double Crown and Anchor Society points for all 2021 cruises that are booked before 2020 ends.
Never before has Royal Caribbean made moving up the ladder of its customer loyalty program so easy, and with this new policy came a lot of questions from guests on how exactly it all works.
With so many questions about this popular new incentive, here are answers to the most common questions you wanted to know about the double points offer.
What is the double points offer?
As the name implies, Royal Caribbean will give Crown & Anchor Society members double cruise points on sailings departing January 1 – December 31, 2021.
Loyalty 2X Points applies to new, individual, and named group bookings confirmed at prevailing rates, and existing bookings made for bookings made before December 31, 2020 on sailings between January 1 – December 31, 2021.
How many points will I earn per night?
You will earn double the number of points per night as you would normally earn on a Royal Caribbean sailing.
|Standard Cruise Points||Double Cruise Points||Total Number of Cruise Points Awarded|
|Cruise||1 point per night||1 additional point per night||2 points per night|
|Single Cruiser||2 point per night||2 additional point per night||4 points per night|
|Suite||2 point per night||2 additional point per night||4 points per night|
|Single Cruiser & Suite||3 point per night||3 additional point per night||6 points per night|
Does my booking qualify for the double points offer?
This offer applies to named, existing bookings for sailings departing on January 1 – December 31, 2021 booked before December 31, 2020.
Essentially, it is combinable with just about any 2021 sailing.
In the first couple of days, there were exclusions, but those have been removed.
This benefit is being applied to existing bookings as well, so there is no need to rebook.
In addition, your Crown and Anchor Society member number must be added at the time of the booking to qualify for this benefit.
Is double points combinable with other Crown & Anchor Society benefits?
Yes, the double points is combinable with your Crown and Anchor benefits, including the balcony discount.
When will I receive my double points?
You will get your double points just like you would before this offer, which is after making final payment in full and completing the sailing.
Typically Crown and Anchor Society points can take a week or two to be applied to an account.
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 2021 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.
