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.

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?

    Sheri is entertaining and super professional. When I have reached out for specific recommendations for ports she has responded with specific options that work for our family that are kid friendly. Getting first hand recommendations is much better than reading online reviews and much appreciated. Thanks for always taking the high road and sharing the “facts” with us. Keep sharing your family cruise reports, I love to hear about your adventures.

    I am new to cruising and have been doing ALL the research for our Norway Cruise on Holland America in August 2023 for a big celebration! I have absolutely LOVED this podcast and have learned so much! Sheri is so upbeat and positive and Mr. Cruise tips tv is very entertaining. When I heard this episode I found we had some things in common. My son's birthday is October 31st too! He just turned 21. And...we will be celebrating our 25th anniversary in June 2023 plus my husband turns 50 that same month! I am so excited to try some of the ideas you mentioned and hoping we have an amazing time! Thank you both for all of the great information. I'm still listening to older podcasts and it is all GREAT!

    I came across one of your YouTube videos while I was doing research trying to decide which cruise to take with my fiancé and his parents. We are now booked on the Carnival Vista 7 day Western Caribbean in late February and are SO EXCITED!! I love your practical, real-life advice on all of the content you produce! You, Mr. CruiseTipsTV, and Junior have a great family dynamic and bring so much to your followers. Much appreciated, Melissa
