Crown and Anchor Society FAQ

What do I have to do to enroll in the Crown and Anchor Society?

Nothing. You will automatically be signed up when you sail with Royal Caribbean for the first time.

When does my loyalty status take effect?

Your loyalty points are awarded at the conclusion of each cruise on which you earn them. For example, if you're currently Gold and book a sailing that will get you to Platinum, you will receive Gold benefits on that sailing. Your Platinum perks will kick in after the sailing is completed and will be available for you to use on your next voyage.

I'm cruising with friends/my spouse, and we're at different loyalty tiers. Can perks be shared?

They cannot be shared among friends traveling together, but spouses and significant others (as well as children -- see below) can be added as part of a family group. They will receive the status of the highest-tiered family member, with the exception of Pinnacle Club.

If the highest status in a family group is Pinnacle Club, other family members will be awarded Diamond Plus status, along with associated perks. However, the number of points accrued will be equivalent to the number of nights sailed with Royal Caribbean, despite the elevated status.

The only way for family members to reach Pinnacle Club status is to actually sail 700 nights with the cruise line.

If I have status and I'm cruising with my child(ren), will my status carry over?

Yes. Your minor (17 and younger) child's status will automatically match yours after his or her first completed cruise, with the exception of Pinnacle Club. If you're at the Pinnacle Club level, your child will be awarded Diamond Plus status.

Will other cruise lines in the Royal Caribbean Group honor my Crown and Anchor status if I sail with them?

Yes. With the exception of Gold level, Celebrity Cruises will honor your Crown and Anchor Society status and perks, according to this chart. However, if you sail with Celebrity, any points earned for your voyage will apply to your Captain's Club loyalty status with Celebrity. Those points will not count toward your Crown and Anchor status.
