If you’re a gambler who takes part in Norwegian Cruise Line’s popular Casino At Sea program, you’re going to probably like what they announced this week. Because now, the program is expanding to include Norwegian’s other brands, Regent Seven Seas and Oceania.
What This Means
With the relaunch of the new and improved Casinos At Sea program, Norwegian will have “the first multi-branded casino rewards program at sea,” said Jim Abbas, Senior Vice President of Casino Operations for the company. “Members can now play aboard all 24 ships under the Norwegian, Oceania and Regent brands.”
The change will also impact the look of the Players card guests can register for. And while the names of the various levels have changed, the points needed to reach them remain the same.
- Jade, which will be the starting level for all cruisers
- Pearl, awarded after 5,000 points have been earned within a tier-evaluation period
- Sapphire, awarded after 15,000 points have been earned within a tier-evaluation period
- Ruby, awarded after 35,000 points have been earned within a tier-evaluation period
- Elite, awarded after 100,000 points have been earned within a tier-evaluation period
Will Other Lines Follow Suit?
Given how often cruise lines follow one another’s leads, it’s worth wondering if other lines will alter their gambler’s rewards programs as well. Might Carnival extend their popular Players Club to include points earned across the various lines which operate under the Carnival corporate umbrella, including Princess and Holland America? Only time will tell!
Do you use a card associated with a rewards program when gambling? What’s the best perk you’ve ever gotten?
