There’s good news for Princess Cruises Captain’s Circle members today. For a limited time, guests will earn double cruise credits toward status when they add a Princess Plus or Princess Premier package to their booking.

Let’s dive into the details of this new promotion from Princess Cruises.

Earn Double Cruise Credits on Princess Cruises

Princess Cruises‘ loyalty program is called Captain’s Circle. It rewards guests based on either the number of total cruises or the number of cruise days. There are 4 levels within the program.

  • Gold: After the first cruise
  • Ruby: After 3 cruises or 30 cruise days
  • Platinum: After 5 cruises or 50 cruise days
  • Elite: After 15 cruises or 150 cruise days

Members who have achieved elite status in the Captain’s Circle are entitled to a variety of benefits. These include exclusive access to a dedicated Help Desk phone line, discounted fares, and a host of other cruise perks.

With this new Loyalty Accelerator Program, Captain’s Circle members can earn double cruise credits (both the number of cruises and cruise days). To be eligible, a member needs to sail between August 1, 2024, and December 1, 2024, and add either the Princess Plus package or Princess Premier package to their booking at least 2 days prior to sailing.

Members will earn both double cruises and double cruise nights if they are eligible for this promotion. For example, a 7-night cruise in September (with a Princess Plus or Princess Premier package) would earn 2 cruise credits and 14 cruise nights.

This promotion is valid on previously booked cruises as well as new bookings.
