Cruise line casino loyalty match programs

19 July 2023

The casinos at some cruise lines have status matching, to encourage you to switch to their cruise line. Royal Caribbean and Celebrity Cruises also have agreements with a land based casino chain.


Carnival Cruise Line's Carnival Players Club has the Fun Match Program. You can get drinks included, upgrades, spending money and discounted or complimentary cruises.

Norwegian Cruise Line

As far as we know Norwegian Cruise Line's casino loyalty program does not have a matching program. If it does it is not obvious or clear.

Royal Caribbean

Royal Caribbean International's Club Royale has the Tier Offer Cruise Match program, which matches the tier status of cruise and land based casinos.

Royal Caribbean International and Celebrity Cruise Lines have a preferred partnership with MGM Resorts. Below is table of the Royal Caribbean and Celebrity Cruises tier match with MGM Rewards.
