Norwegian Cruise Line Loyalty Program FAQ
How do I enroll in Latitudes?
All cruisers 18 years of age and older will be automatically enrolled in the Latitudes program after their first voyage with Norwegian Cruise Line.
When does my loyalty status take effect?
Reward points are awarded within 48 hours after each cruise is completed. So if a sailing will give you enough points to bump you to the next level, you won't be able to take advantage of the higher tier's perks until the sailing after the one on which you reached the new status.
I’m cruising with my friends/spouse, and we're at different loyalty tiers. Can perks be shared?
No. Points and perks cannot be shared or transferred. Each cruiser must earn his or her own respective points and status in order to take advantage of the associated benefits and amenities. The only exceptions are rewards that are offered on a per-cabin basis, as opposed to a per-cruiser basis.
If I have status and I'm cruising with my child(ren), will my status carry over?
No. Children must earn their own points. Because Latitudes members must be at least 18 years of age, points will be accrued, held and added to their Latitudes accounts upon completion of their first sailing after turning 18. The loyalty status they're awarded will directly correlate to the number of points they accumulated prior to that point.
Do Latitudes points and loyalty status expire?
No, your status will never expire, no matter how long it has been since there has been qualifying points activity.
Are there any cruises that are excluded from receiving rewards points that go towards loyalty status?
If you booked your fare at a reduced rate ("travel agent rates, IATA rates, Interline rates, employee rates, [and] vendor rates"), you will not earn points. Additionally, complimentary cruises and those redeemed with a cruise certification, such as Bingo winners, are ineligible for rewards points.
Will other Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings brands honor my Latitudes status if I sail with them?
No. Your loyalty status will not be honored, nor will perks be given, on voyages with Regent Seven Seas Cruises or Oceania Cruises. Similarly, sailing with one of those lines will not earn you reward points toward your Latitudes standing.
