Cruise line loyalty progams

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.

Our cruise line loyalty

Where are we? We are one point away from Platinum on Carnival with 74 points, Platinum and going for elite on Princess with 11 cruises and 99 days, and we’re silver on Norwegian with 30 points. On Royal Caribbean we are gold with 20 points.

What cruise lines are we covering today?

We’re talking about Norwegian, Carnival, Royal Caribbean and PRincess. I’d encourage you to check out MSC, HAL, Disney, Celebrity and more.

Questions you should ask yourself when considering cruise line loyalty

  1. What are the perks of the cruise lineYou’re considering building loyalty with?? 
  2. Do those perks outweigh the benefits of trying new cruise lines are going back-and-forth between cruise lines?
  3. What aremissing out on? Are there other cruise ships that sail from your area that you would like to try? Are there good deals?
  4. What would it be like if you focused on building loyalty with two cruise lines instead of just one?

    Preparing for our first cruise and info on the podcast has been very helpful. Need to avoid the trap that many podcasters fall into though,.., namely trying too hard to be funny and going off on unrelated tangents. Humor is good and sometimes tangents are endearing but if 10 minutes of a 30 minute episode are inside jokes, it loses me. Good info though and I’ll keep listening.

  • Love the show!

    I stumbled across your show while I prepare for my 1st cruise in 12/2024. I’m going from Mobile, Al to Belize and Cozumel on a 7 day cruise. It’s w/Carnival. It will be with my husband and our 2 children. It’s my kids’ birthday who are turning 15 and 13. Their birthdays are just a few days apart. We decided to celebrate big this year! I’m so excited! I hope to become an avid cruiser. I travel a lot anyway. I love the idea of cruising already! I have planned 3 previous cruises but had to cancel because the the 1st and 2nd time I ended up pregnant and too far along & the 3rd time I got COVID. This is the 4th time and I’m not letting anything stop me! lol I love the show. I love how funny you guys are! All the info is great. Can you do an updated podcast of what to pack for an embarking bag? Can you please give me more info on what to expect on my 1st cruise? Thank you so much for all of your great advice, information, and funny comments! Keep it up!

  • BEST CRUISE PODCAST!!
    May 8, 2024 by Elainemast from United States

    I’ve been listening to CruiseTipsTV for several years and I’m finally leaving a review. It started watching their content, when we went on our very first cruise in 2017. I absolutely look forward to listening to their podcast and it just makes me happy! I love the banter between Mr. CruiseTipsTV and Sherri! They are always so positive but also realistic. They also give so many tips and advice! Currently, I am mowing our yard and have them in my ears and it’s just getting me excited for our next cruise! Keep up the wonderful content and podcast! Y’all are the best! Elaine
