Are cruise line loyalty programs worth the effort?
In this episode of the podcast we ask the question “Is it better to stick with one line and build cruise line loyalty?” We’ll discuss major cruise line loyalty programs and questions you should ask yourself about cruise line loyalty. In the end we will hopefully have given you the information you need to determine if you should be loyal to one cruise line, or whether cruise line loyalty programs are worth the effort.
Here’re the basics
We’ll discuss 4 major cruise line loyalty programs AND 4 questions you should ask yourself about cruise line loyalty: Thanks Paula Blair Robbins for posting this question.

Questions you should ask yourself when considering cruise line loyalty

- Do those perks outweigh the benefits of trying new cruise lines are going back-and-forth between cruise lines?
- What aremissing out on? Are there other cruise ships that sail from your area that you would like to try? Are there good deals?

CruiseTipsTV Unplugged is THE best cruise podcast! The content and information shared is practical for veteran cruisers and newbies alike. The range of topics offers something for everyone and appeals to anyone who loves to cruise. The format is concise and professionally edited. I appreciate how they inform and advocate for the cruise industry. Sheri’s voice is perfectly suited for podcasting, and the banter between her and Mr. CruiseTipsTV is always entertaining - they are an extremely likable couple! I look forward to Wednesdays because I can listen to a new episode of CruiseTipsTV Unplugged! It is the #1 podcast I recommend to anyone wanting to learn more about cruising. Please keep the new episodes coming, and one day I hope to see YOU on the high seas!
