Carnival Cruise Line is refreshing its Players Club casino program to give members more access to unique offers and experiences, both onboard and ashore. Many casinos offer Carnival Cruises to their guests (including MGM Resorts and Station Casinos) through various rewards programs and gifts to higher tiered club members.
The new program includes a new Dealer’s Choice offer with exclusive cruise savings opportunities, complimentary in-casino drinks for qualified guests, and invitation-only Players Club events. With this refresh, Carnival has also upgraded several new programs to offer guests an enhanced cruise and casino experience with value-added benefits, privileges and exclusive events based on level of play.
• Getaway: A great way for players looking for a short vacation, Getaway is available on three- to five-day cruises with extras like in-stateroom gifts, priority check-in and luggage delivery, complimentary in-casino drinks to qualified players, and a chance to win up to $10,000 in free play, cash and prizes.
• Premier: For more avid casino players, Premier is available on cruises of six days or longer and offers all the benefits of the Getaway program plus a complimentary pre-cruise gift, priority debarkation, a special Welcome Aboard party, invitation-only casino tournaments, and a chance at $20,000 in free play, cash and prizes.
• Ultra: Loyal players will receive Ultra invites, which include all of the benefits of the Premier program plus a chance at $100,000 in cash and gifts on board.
• Elite: Reserved for the very best players, the Elite program provides exclusive experiences and perks like complimentary parking or local airport pick-up and drop-off, early stateroom access, complimentary drinks throughout the cruise, a free shore excursion and Wi-Fi, special Welcome Aboard and sail-away parties, and VIFP Platinum status for the entire voyage.
“Carnival offers the most enjoyable and rewarding casinos aboard our 26 ships, and with our enhanced Carnival Players Club program we’re providing our valued guests with a variety of expanded offers and unique experiences simply based on their level of play,” said Marty Goldman, Carnival’s senior vice president of global casino operations.
In addition to a new branding and logo that mirrors the line’s recently launched marketing campaign, a new Players Club web site, www.carnivalplayersclub.com, offers a wide range of helpful information.
