MSC Cruises has revealed details of additional discounts and benefits to their MSC Voyagers Club loyalty program.
Here are five reasons why you should join:
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.
Gold Card Members also enjoy a one-hour complimentary visit to the Thermal Area in the MSC Aurea Spa 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.
2. STATUS MATCH PROGRAM
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.
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!
Members can book Voyages Selection departures through all MSC Cruises channels. For more on MSC Voyagers Club, visit here.
*Points vary depending on the type of stateroom or Experience booked, the length of the cruise and the amount spent on onboard services (both booked in advance and on board) and purchases. For instance, booking a MSC Yacht Club stateroom will receive more points than a Fantastica stateroom and booking a 10-day cruise will receive more points than a 5-day cruise, and so forth.
