MSC Cruises, the Swiss-based world’s largest privately-owned cruise company and market leader in Europe, South America, South Africa and the Gulf, has revealed details of additional discounts and benefits to their popular MSC Voyagers Club loyalty programme.
The MSC Voyagers Club is designed to reward MSC Cruises’ repeat customers, a way of sharing the love of travelling by sea with members and reinforcing the Company’s consistent commitment to offer guests an exceptional all-around experience before, during and after their cruise. With an ever-growing fleet of modern, elegant ships, an onboard guest offering that is designed around unique experiences and an incredible choice of itineraries all around the world, there are more reasons than ever before to choose a holiday with MSC Cruises.
1) DIFFERENT MEMBERSHIP LEVELS OFFER INCREASING REWARDS
The MSC Voyagers club is free and easy to join! All guests who have travelled 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, with each one offering increasing awards - Welcome, Classic, Silver, Gold, and Black. Guests can earn points that raise both their privileges and status progressively.
Examples of the benefits include, a special “welcome back” cocktail and an informative newsletter for Classic, Silver Card Members also enjoy these benefits, as well as a complimentary fruit basket and free $50 shipboard credit on Voyages Selection cruises to spend on anything they wish!
Gold Card Members enjoy further benefits along with those mentioned above, that include a one-hour complimentary visit to the Thermal Area in the MSC Aurea Spa, the highly sought-after haven of relaxation on board the MSC Cruises fleet, as well as free gifts and priority disembarkation in ports where tender boats are necessary.
Black Card Members benefits include all the benefits of other levels of membership, with a host of extras, including in-cabin 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 to reflect the multitude of precious advantages at this level.
2) STATUS MATCH PROGRAMME FOR AVID TRAVELLERS
For members of other hotel, cruise line or tour operator loyalty programmes, MSC Voyagers Club will status match, offering a matching level from Classic to Black and guests can take advantage of the 5% discount on any cruise and a similar or higher privilege status than their current loyalty programme.
3) 5% DISCOUNT ON ALL BOOKINGS, EARLY ACCESS AND POINTS TO REACH EXCITING REWARDS
Following their first cruise, 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 further points can then be collected through multiple methods.* As guests collect more points, their membership levels up 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 10 March 2019) or 15%, meaning members can save big for their next holidays!
These itineraries are available on cruises worldwide, from the Mediterranean to the Baltic, to the Caribbean to the East China Sea, ranging from cruises lasting only a few days to more than 2 weeks.
As of the end of June 2019, Voyagers Club members have yet another reason to book their next holidays on Voyages Selection cruises, as each of these cruises will allow guests to double their points, depending on the Experience that they book. This offers members the chance to progress 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 wishing to become world travellers at the same time, MSC Voyagers Club members of Classic or above who book a full MSC World Cruise will triple their membership points for the type of experience they choose. Even lucky Welcome level members can benefit from this offer if their enrolment 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!
