Tourism: Cruise Line That Matches Loyalty Status Increases Perks and Discounts
MSC Cruises, the cruise line that matches loyalty status from other cruise lines and hotels, has increased the discounts and benefits that they offer with this program.
MSC Cruises will match the status your existing cruise, travel or tour operator program with a similar or higher status. This means you can instantly get benefits when joining the MSC Voyager’s Club.
The MSC Voyagers Club is designed to reward MSC Cruises’ repeat customers and share the love of traveling by sea, reinforcing the cruise line’s consistent commitment to offering guests an exceptional experience before, during and after their cruise.
With an ever-growing fleet of modern, elegant ships, a guest offering designed around unique, authentic experiences, and a growing choice of itineraries all around the world, there are more reasons than ever before to vacation with MSC Cruises.
1. DIFFERENT MEMBERSHIP LEVELS OFFER INCREASING REWARDS
The MSC Voyagers club is free and easy to join! All guests who have traveled with MSC Cruises since 2006 or have a current confirmed booking can apply to the Voyagers Club before boarding, aboard the ship or following the cruise to begin taking advantage of increasing benefits and rewards.
There are five different levels of membership, offering increasing rewards — Welcome, Classic, Silver, Gold, and Black. Guests can earn points that raise both their privileges and status progressively.
Classic card members can enjoy benefits like a special “welcome back” cocktail and an informative newsletter. Silver Card Members also receive this as well as a complimentary fruit basket and free $50 shipboard credit on Voyages Selection cruises to spend on board.
Beyond the benefits mentioned above, Gold Card Members also enjoy a one-hour complimentary visit to the Thermal Area in the MSC Aurea Spa — MSC Cruises’ highly-rated haven of relaxation and the only Balinese-style spas at sea — as well as free gifts and priority disembarkation in ports where tender boats are necessary.
Black Card Members receive all the benefits of other levels of membership, with a host of extras, including in-stateroom complimentary Prosecco and strawberries, slippers and a luxurious bathrobe, a tasting menu dinner for two in one of the Specialty Restaurants, a free dance class, a complimentary chocolate ship model, late check-out times and priority disembarkation at the end of the cruise, as well as an exclusive Black Card Member party during the cruise. As of September 2019, Black Card level membership will be renamed Diamond to reflect the multitude of precious advantages at this level.
2. STATUS MATCH PROGRAM FOR AVID TRAVELLERS
For members of other hotel, cruise line or tour operator loyalty programs, MSC Voyagers Club will match their current status, offering these members similar or higher privilege status than their current loyalty program.
3. 5% DISCOUNT ON ALL BOOKINGS, EARLY ACCESS AND POINTS TO REACH EXCITING REWARDS
Following their first cruise, all members of the MSC Voyagers Club will automatically benefit from a 5% discount on all future cruise bookings, early access to all sales openings and different opportunities to earn points.* As guests collect more points, their membership levels increase and consequently, their privileges multiply.
4. EXTRA DISCOUNTS AND DOUBLE POINTS ON VOYAGES SELECTION CRUISES
On top of the regular 5% discount, a range of exclusive Voyages Selection cruise discounts are available to MSC Voyagers Club members of all levels, from Classic to Black. These regularly curated travel selections are discounted by 5%, 10% (NEW! since March 10, 2019) or 15%, meaning members can save big for their next getaway!
These itineraries are available on cruises worldwide, from the Mediterranean and the Baltic to the Caribbean to the East China Sea, ranging from cruises lasting only a few days to more than 2 weeks.
As of the end of June 2019, Voyagers Club members have yet another reason to book their next vacations on Voyages Selection cruises. In addition to discounted rates, each of these cruises will allow guests to double their points, depending on the Experience that they book. This offers members the chance to boost their membership level twice as quickly and take advantage of ever-increasing benefits.
5. BOOK A WORLD CRUISE AND INSTANTLY BOOST YOUR STATUS
For guests aiming to reach Black Card Member status in a fraction of the time and also wishing to become world travelers, MSC Voyagers Club members of Classic status or above who book a full MSC World Cruise will triple the points of the type of Experience they choose. Even lucky Welcome level members can benefit from this offer if their enrollment date is earlier than their World Cruise booking date!
Unlike other cruises, these points will be automatically added to a member’s account prior to departure, allowing them to enjoy all the added privileges right away. On top of this, membership will automatically be extended for a further three years. Travel the world in ever greater comfort!
