There is now even more time to earn double Crown and Anchor points.
Royal Caribbean announced it has extended the Loyalty 2X Points benefit so that it applies to existing bookings, as well as new bookings made between now and September 30, 2021 for cruises sailing through December 31, 2022.
Prior to this extension, the program was good for bookings made through June 30, 2021 and departing between now and September 30, 2022. This is the third time Royal Caribbean has extended the Double Points offer.
Double points means guests earn twice the amount of points per night than usual in the Crown and Anchor Society.
There is no change to existing cruises booked during the extended time period, as they already qualify for the benefit as well.
Since the Double Points benefit was announced, it was a big hit with guests because it allows people to move up the cruise line's customer loyalty program faster.
Instead of the usual one point per night, Royal Caribbean said it would double the points per night (including other staterooms as well):
- Standard room: 2 points per night
- Suite room: 4 points per night
- Solo guest in standard room: 4 points per night
- Solo guest in suite: 6 points per night
Loyalty 2X Points is available to Gold, Platinum, Emerald, Diamond, Diamond Plus, and Pinnacle Crown & Anchor Society members.
Crown and Anchor points will be applied once the guest has paid their booking in full and completed their sailing.
Why you want double points
Earning double the amount of points per night means you can earn points quicker, which is something Royal Caribbean has rarely offered in the past.
By earning more points, you can reach the higher tiers of Crown and Anchor Society faster, and there are some really lucrative benefits for reaching the Diamond and Diamond Plus tiers.
Complimentary alcoholic drinks, balcony discounts, complimentary photos, and reserved seating at shows are just some of the great freebies guests who reach the top tiers of Crown and Anchor Society can expect.
Moreover, this type of offer has rarely been seen. Previous extra point offers were much more restrictive and have not been made available for a while.
