If you're getting ready to sail for the first time with Royal, be sure you visit the "Crown & Anchor Society" desk onboard. You can sign up for benefits for future cruises. Unlike some of the lines it's not automatic, you have to sign up to get past passenger benefits.

That way, next time you sail with them you get some free goodies. They'll have a coupon book in your cabin when you arrive onboard for your second sailing. There are casino credits, put down a $5. bet, they make it $10. Go to the wine tasting or dinner with the captain or whatever their party thing is on the sailing you take free. Lots of free perks for second and every future sailings if you sign up.

If you've sailed RCI before but you didn't know about it or want to sign up at the time you still can before your next sailing. Call the Crown & Anchor Society at 1(800)526-9723 with the ship and sail date (previos booking #, or even your name and date of birth if you can't find anything else) when you went before. They can stil sign you up so you get your goodies for the next sailing.

You'll also get some mail about three weeks after signing up with info about other benefits once you hit Platinum, Diamond or Diamond+, like Sonny. The second level starts with only 5 sailings.

Happy sailing, Neil

Thanks, Neil! I would not have known this without your post. I'll make sure to check it out on board the Explorer next year.

Thanks for the info Neil. After four cruises with HAL we decided to branch out and are looking forward to our cruise on Adventure of the Sea in July.

Aren't we just talking about normal Crown&Anchor membership after one completed cruise?
It's just to call the RCCL office near you and sign up for membership after a completed cruise.
Or did you mean signing up onboard gives you even more benefits for future cruises?

JuniorCruiser,

Yep, your benefits begin after your first sailing and it doesn't matter if you sign up onboard or through the # provided above. There isn't an RCCL office near you but if you call their main booking # they can also sometimes do it but most of the time will need to transfer you to the C&A desk. The # in the original post is the direct line, no transfer needed.

ScarletJim, I'd love to hear you review the AOS when you return. I'll be on her in Sept. I'd also be curious to know how you'd compare the experience with your HAL sailings.

By the way welcome to Cruise-Chat!

Cheers, Neil

TrvlPro: OK, cause I got a RCCL office here in Norway which speaks my language
It's the same benefits anyway, right?
Don't get extra's for signing up in the C&A desk? =)

Hmmmm, learn something new every day. Didn't know RCCL had local offices anywhere. It's the same benefits regardless of where you sign up. No extras for signing up onboard. But, if you book your next cruise while onboard there are some benefits from doing so. Talk to them onboard. If the floks at your local office have been nice to deal with and you want them to get credit for the booking you do onboard you can. Just ask them to put the booking in your T/A's name.

Cheers, Neil

If you purchase a "Next Cruise Booking" when on board, and you give them your travel agents name, you will have to get your agent to release the booking number if you should happen to use a different agent. If you get the booking in your name you can still keep using the same agent and just give the number to him/her when you decide which cruise you want to take. When you use the booking you'll get a $100 on board credit for a 7 night cruise. The booking is good for up to 3 years. It's a great program. If you join the Crown and Anchor Society you'll enjoy some great perks. Especially after 5 cruise credits. The society is the largest in the world with over 4 million members. Royal Caribbean has the best loyality program out there. This is why I only book with RCCL.
