Double C&A Points ...


Recommended Posts

I have a friend who is trying to get himself to Diamond and with the current reduced single supplement sale i had mentioned to him that it was double, double points on sailing solo.

He checked with Royal and was told its triple for a solo sail currently not quadruple.

Pretty sure i had read the opposite here (Twangster statement from memory but could be very wrong on that).

Does anyone have any experience yet with a solo sail under the double points promo that can provide an "actual results" statement rather than "royal says ..."

 

Thanks

For my future solo sailings I get 6 points each night. 1 for sailing, 1 more for being solo, and 1 more for being in a suite. Double that is 6 points per night. When this first came out, I emailed Royal just to make sure. Also, previous cruisers have already posted on the forums.

So for him sailing solo in a non-suite…1 for the sailing, 1 extra for being solo. Double that is 4 points per night.

Thank you, that was my understanding too but he got it direct from a Royal rep (we all know what that's worth) so i thought i would check with the experts ?

This thread made me realize I totally misread the FAQ about this, and I'm going to end up with fewer points than I thought this year. That either means waiting for Diamond status or booking another cruise this year.

I think most RCLB readers know which way I'm leaning after I looked at the prices to turn both of my cruises this year into B2Bs...

You know what they say…If you don’t believe or like the answer from Royal’s Rep…Just call back to another rep because it’ll be a different response.

Used that technique many times ... Royal customer service ... keep asking until someone gives you what you want ?

It's supposed to be pretty simple.  Double means double what you would have received without the double promo.  

If you would have expected one point per night now you get two.  Normally two becomes four.  Normally three becomes six.  

It is literally double points.  

I've yet to hear anyone complain they haven't received what the double promo states.

Have you had personal experience with this double promo since they launched it?

I'm not expecting any issues.  It's not even something I'm thinking about.  In the past as a solo cruiser my points often posted incorrectly but C&A always fixed them with a simple phone call.  I expect that to continue.  

I thought you had already sailed on a revenue cruise since the restart.  I think I'm confusing your cruise activities with @Matt's

I have, but Royal isn't offering me any points on those cruises.

I wouldn't have minded not getting points on the types of cruises you've been on.  I would even have let them deduct points from me if needed. ?

We just got double points on our 8/15 cruise on Indy. Just in a balcony and not single occupancy, but for a 7 night cruise we got 14 points each.

I'm glad you got your double points.  My worry is how they'll deal with solo cruisers in regular rooms.  I'm hoping it will truly be a double-double deal.

@PG Cruiser I sailed with my husband and daughter in a suite. 7 days after I stepped off the ship my points were on my account, additional 28 points. My husband and daughter sailing in the same cabin received nothing. I called and their accounts were updated while I was on the phone.

I didn't get what I expected, three e-mails later and no response, i guess I will have to call. We went on AOS August 7th, booked a JS, did Royalup to a GS and got only 14 points. I was expecting 4x points since we did a suite, I believe JS qualified so the RU to GS shouldn't have mattered. I was expecting 28 points, since suites get double and it's double that through 2022. We have suites in January and July so I was expecting to make diamond after three suites during the promotion. What did I miss?
