    Crown & Anchor

    by biertroll » Fri Jan 20, 2017 8:43 am

    (Like the buy 1 get 1 beer deal for Gold status)

    I am emerald status, but that doesn't mean much on this cruise. Here are the perks I am supposed to get

    SeaPass Card recognition
    Priority check-in
    Private departure lounge with continental breakfast
    Exclusive Trivia
    Exclusive Top Tier Event
    Robes for use onboard3
    Signature lapel pin
    Welcome Gift/Amenity including choice of beverage

    The only one I would care about is the "Priority check-in" and for a normal cruise I definitely go to a MUCH shorter line. Last year this cruise did not have a priority line at all that I saw. Not too concerned about it, but you asked :)

    You should have a piece of paper in your cabin that says what stuff we get, I think theres some spa discounts too. I mainly remember the buy 1 get 1 :lol: Plus your card should be a different color too.

    Yeah my card was different. I don't usually pay attention to the extra stuff that brings. I think you get 1 point per day at sea or something like that. Might be Emerald with Slayergeek after this one. We jump around to different cruise lines so tough to rack up too many points on one of them.

    How do we get to enjoy these benefits? Should we go somewhere different on the port for the priority check-in? And at what time? how about the departure lounge, where should we go? Can I find information anywhere? This will be my fourth cruise and I've never heard of all this before.

    Thanks!

    I think most of that applies to regular cruises and no so much to the 70k cruise.

    In 2013,in Miami being only a Gold cruiser I was able to use the shorter line.My Sea Pass had Gold on it and the lady pointed me over.This was before everyone started to join,now only thing we get is the drink coupon book.

    There is no priority check-in, at least there hasn't been since the last Miami cruise. I got to use the Gold line once. It was great. As for the "coupon book" benefits, they come preloaded on your sea pass and I believe they automatically give you the discount on the first beer you order. There should be a list of all the benefits in the cabin for you if you have Gold or higher status.

    I can't find any info on a special departure lounge at the port or on the ship. The closest I can find is the Diamond Club on broad, which doesn't look like is available to Gold members.

    There was also a special section in the balcony of the theater last time that was reserved for Crown and Anchor members but I don't think it is policed.

    I'm getting bumped up to Platinum after this cruise, but it looks like all I'll get extra is a fancy robe in the stateroom. Robes only available upon request. :roll:

    Awesome thanks man! So it's part of a coupon booklet sort of thing, not an automatic thing with the marking on your sea pass card.

    Pretty much what everyone else said. There are perks, but most don't apply to this cruise. That said, the days you sail do count towards your account though. This also reminds me that I need to call them cause I sailed on Majesty last month and they didn't increase my points yet...

    We asked customer service about it. They said that charters never honor it. I said that that's not true, the past 2 years since we became gold, we've received the perks. Also the drink prices went up. UMC keeps getting better, RC keeps getting worse.

    Encountered that at Johnny Rockets for the bogo milkshake, I said, "not true, I used this last time I was on 70k" and they honored it... Pretty shitty way to nickel & dime us

    I noticed that too. Another thing that kind of annoyed me was the fact that if you ordered a guiness you'd get 1 of 3 different prices. When I finally started to pay attention as to why its because the bartender just clicked on whatever one they felt. I saw maybe 2 foreign extra stouts and no bottles, but I was definitely charged for both when I ordered the can.

    We also had 2 robes in our room that we didn't ask for.

    So after calling My Cruise Points they called back today and are giving me a $250 credit directly to my RC CC.And one of my beers disappeared,so I guess that was a gold status thing.

    For next cruise I'll get the bathrobe perk. I hereby claim dibs on the exclusive creation and use of a patch robe, since the other guy beat me to the lifejacket.

    What's the qualification for getting Gold status in C&A? Is it a certain number of nights at sea?
    I had a gold Seapass this year, and my buddy Rafael had, uh, something else. (He'd been on one 70K before.)

    each night aboard earns 1 point .... after so many points you gain gold .... onward toward platinum and so forth it is a RC thing not UMC :cheers:

    The gold cards were for cruisers who have been on 3+ 70K cruises including 2017. This was my 3rd year and I had a gold card.

    Royal Caribbean does not give you a gold card for regular cruises until you become platinum. While you are a gold you get the grey card with Gold written on it.

    Huh. That's confusing. But this was my third 70K (and my fourth RC cruise) so....yay, Gold card.

    If RC's policy is the same as it was this year, you will not get any perks.

    There wasn't anything in own room or details about any offers.As I remember from earlier cruises,BOGO Wine or beer ,BOGO stuff at Johnny Rockets and something at the coffee shop (along with other stuff I never used).The only reason I got a free beer is someone looked at my charges because of a problem with cruise credit,they just took it off ,I said nothing about it.

    To add, it says robes are available upon request. Anyone see where to request them on the cruise planner?

    AND we get a "Signature Lapel Pin"

    ooooOOOOooooh. Fancy.

    As far as requesting the robes - you have to wait until you are on broad. Ask the room steward and they will sort you out.

    I'll have to set a reminder for myself to ask otherwise I'm sure I will forget!!

    If you have registered with the crown and anchor then yes you will be entitled to a robe (and no you cannot keep it :P), as you would have enough points to be Platinum.

    You get a point for each night sailed, so with this being the 8th 70k ---> 32 points.

    30+ points = Platinum
