Quick Links to RCCL Ship Info:


Overview

The Crown & Anchor Society is the past passenger loyalty program of Royal Caribbean. After your first Royal Caribbean cruise you are eligible to enroll in the Crown & Anchor Society (it is not done automatically for you).

Important Announcement from Royal Caribbean:
Member Benefits Changes effective September 1, 2009
Starting September 1st there will be some changes to our Crown & Anchor Society benefits. Crown & Anchor members will continue to receive their most valued benefits such as discounts on cruises, savings certificates and priority boarding and departure. Our Platinum and Diamond members also will continue to receive discounts on suite category staterooms including the recently introduced upgraded services and amenities for suite guests.

The changes include:
● A new Ultimate Value Booklet with coupons for various onboard amenities.
● An upgraded wine tasting event at a special price
● A new exclusive nightly event for Diamond and Diamond Plus members to meet and mingle with other fellow members on ships without a Diamond Lounge. This will feature complimentary wine, champagne and a happy hour discount of 25% off all other beverages.
● A continental breakfast with a crew member available to provide services such as obtaining ice show tickets and other assistance.

Due to limited capacity, the Concierge Lounge has not been able to accommodate our growing membership, challenging our ability to provide the optimum experience for our guests. Therefore the Concierge Lounge will now be accessible to our guests staying in Grand Suites and above and Diamond Plus guests only. Diamond Members cruising on Freedom Class ships, Oasis of the Seas and Allure of the Seas will continue to be able to experience exclusive access to a dedicated Diamond Lounge on these ships, which feature a complimentary 'happy hour' from 5-8:30pm daily.
