Get matched for great rewards

Almost all cruise lines offer a loyalty scheme, from Cunard Line’s Cunard World Club to Royal Caribbean’s Crown and Anchor Society.

MSC Voyager levels

MSC Cruises are no different and their loyalty scheme is the MSC Voyagers Club. What is different is they have a fantastic status match scheme that almost anyone that has cruised before will benefit from, better yet – they even accept memberships from hotel loyalty schemes too!

How does it work?

You simply fill out a form with MSC Cruises and give them your information on the current loyalty status you hold from a list of companies that include cruise lines and hotels.

Can I do this more than once?

No, you can only match once in your lifetime. Make sure you cruise within 3 years of your match otherwise you will lose your new status.

Which companies can I match with?

Cruise lines: Costa Cruises, Royal Caribbean, Carnival Cruise, Norwegian Cruise Line, Celebrity Cruises, Cunard Line, Princess Cruises, Silversea, Regent Cruises, Holland America Line, P&O Cruises, Azamara Cruises, Seabourn Cruises, Disney Cruise Line, Ponant Yacht Cruises, Aida Cruises, Crystal Cruises, Oceania Cruises, Star Cruises,
