Royal Caribbean to Recognize Crown & Anchor Society Members With December Diamond Events on Sailings Fleetwide

MIAMI, Oct 27: Royal Caribbean Intl is dedicating the month of December 2009 to honor the cruise line’s Crown & Anchor Society members on all ships. During the December Diamond Event, Diamond and Diamond Plus member guests on all sailings in the month will enjoy enhanced recognition benefits, as well as commemorative gifts, special events and exclusive offers on future sailings. In addition, Diamond and Diamond Plus Crown & Anchor Society member guests on the Dec 5, 2009, voyage of Oasis of the Seas will receive an additional cruise credit and additional benefits and gifts to commemorate the inaugural sailing of the world’s largest and most revolutionary cruise ship. Royal Caribbean’s Crown & Anchor Society is the cruise line’s guest loyalty program, recognizing guests with benefits and savings when they choose a Royal Caribbean cruise or cruise tour land package.

“Royal Caribbean is delighted to honor our valued Crown & Anchor Society members on all December 2009 sailings for their loyalty and passion for our cruise line,” said Betsy O’Rourke, senior vice president of Marketing, Royal Caribbean International.

Crown & Anchor Society members can still join more than 800 fellow Diamond and Diamond Plus members on the spectacular Oasis of the Seas inaugural cruise on Dec 5, 2009. In addition to the standard recognition benefits, Diamond and Diamond-plus level members will enjoy additional recognition gifts and benefits, including one additional cruise credit, exclusive special events, other surprise gifts that recognize the cruise line’s most loyal members, and tempting exclusive offers for future sailings.

When she begins service in December 2009, Oasis of the Seas will be the largest and most revolutionary cruise ship in the world. An architectural marvel at sea, she will span 16 decks, encompass 225,282 gross registered tons, carry 5,400 guests at double occupancy, and feature 2,700 staterooms. Oasis of the Seas will be the first ship to tout the cruise line’s new neighborhood concept of seven distinct themed areas, which includes Central Park, Boardwalk, the Royal Promenade, the Pool and Sports Zone, Vitality at Sea Spa and Fitness Center, Entertainment Place and Youth Zone.
