Get Your Latitudes Rewards With Norwegian Cruise Line

We’ve always thought Norwegian Cruise Line had a pretty good past passenger program and Cruise Diva has been a member since it was initially called “Embark” and later changed to “Latitudes.” So we were pretty excited to hear that Norwegian has made enhancements to the guest loyalty program.

Renamed Latitudes Rewards, the new program better recognizes Norwegian’s valued loyal guests. Key program changes include new ways for members to earn points, additional onboard recognition and benefits, and access to online account tracking. Current Latitudes members will automatically be enrolled in the new Latitudes Rewards program and will remain in the same tier or will be upgraded to the appropriate higher tier, depending on the total number of cruise nights and stateroom categories sailed.

Latitudes Rewards members will now earn rewards points in four different ways, making the move up to the next tier faster than before. Instead of accruing points per cruise, members will earn one point per cruise night, providing an opportunity to gain more points the longer you sail. Additional points can be earned when booking a suite or any accommodation in The Haven by Norwegian, booking nine months or more in advance, or when taking advantage of the exclusive monthly “Latitudes Rewards Insider” offers. Latitudes Rewards tiers are based on the total amount of points earned: Bronze members are classified as guests with one to 19 points; Silver members are 20 to 47 points; Gold members are 48 to75 points; and Platinum members are those with 76 or more points.

In addition to current member benefits such as priority check-in, members-only cocktail parties, access to an on-board program representative, and a complimentary online magazine, new benefits have been added to the program. For cruises departing on or after Dec 5, 2011 the new loyalty program includes special onboard perks, based on the guest’s tier level, such as chocolate covered strawberries, ship pins, nightly treats, and discounts on packages in the photo gallery. To get the complete details, visit Latitudes Rewards Past Passenger Benefits on CruiseDiva.com.

If you are already a Latitudes Rewards member, you can now see your total rewards points and view your cruise history and tier status, including how many points are needed to advance to the next tier, at NCL.com/myncl. We strongly suggest that you take a look to make sure your account is all in order. Unfortunately, Cruise Diva’s wasn’t, but there is an easy way to send a message to Customer Support on the NCL site and we’re sure it will be straightened out.
