Loyalty Programs - Do Cruise Lines Honor other Status Levels?

In Vegas, many casinos will give you the same level player card that you earned elsewhere in order to win your business. You don't need to earn "points" to reach a level if you already achieved that level at another casino.

Do any of the cruise lines offer a similar program? Or is it like Vegas, if you don't ask, you don't get ...

Carnival doesn't recognize the levels attained between their other lines, so if you've reached a certain level on Princess, it means nothing when you cruise HAL or Carnival ships.


With celebrity, they will recognize your RCI level once you get to platinum I do believe and vice versa, but it is because they are sister companies.

MSC will recognize and match the loyalty points/program from the cruise company you chose. They matched my Carnival status.

As stated, MSC is the only like that will recognize out side of its own line. RCI shares with some of it's lines. Carnival is every line on its own.

Another post disappeared. Oh well, here we go again.

So, what you are asking is, if you are Diamond on Carnival, will you be considered Platinum ( 75+ days ) on Norwegian ? Ummmmmm, no. No frikkin way. The cruiselines would have to be bat$hit crazy to honor each others' loyalty programs. That's why they're called " Loyalty Programs "

Maybe the cruise lines should issue Green Stamps or Plaid Stamps. We can put them in little books and use them for OBC.

there I go showing my age again.

They have to. Have you seen their prices ? Who can afford to be loyal to MSC ?

Unfortunately, I know exactly what you are talking aboutSad

What a wonderful idea! I think I still have a few green stamp books that I never redeemed (or my Mother might). Do you think I could use those?
