Crown and Anchor SocietyThe Crown & Anchor Society is the past passenger loyalty program, or cruise club, of Royal Caribbean. By booking a Royal Caribbean cruise with us, we are able to honor all Crown and Anchor benefits that Royal Caribbean offers you, plus we can give you added amenities that they won't. For example, we may be able to give you onboard credits, pre-paid gratuities, wine, and/or other amenities (based on the exact trip you book). If you'd like to take advantage of Crown & Anchor benefits you must book with us over the phone and (prior to pricing anything out) mention to the reservations agent that you are a Crown and Anchor member. This will ensure that you will get the best deals possible!

Cruise Two new tiers have been added (Emerald and Pinnacle Club), and points are the new way to earn membership status in the Crown & Anchor Society. Members earn one Cruise Point for every cruise night sailed with Royal Caribbean and DOUBLE the points when they purchase a suite.
