Princess Cruises Membership Benefits

Enjoy Princess' cruise line loyalty benefits

Set sail with Princess® and get rewarded with our cruise loyalty program, the Captain’s Circle. Depending on the number of cruises and types of staterooms you’ve booked, you’ll reach one of four tiers: Gold, Ruby, Platinum or Elite. While most cruise line loyalty programs offer some perks for frequent travelers, Princess offers an extensive list of benefits — even for first-time guests. Learn about each membership class and discover what makes the Captain’s Circle one of the best cruise line loyalty programs.

Gold Membership Benefits

Whether you sail to the glaciers of Alaska or the palaces of Russia, relish in the benefits of our Gold Membership after your first cruise with Princess. Once you return from your trip, receive curated recommendations for future cruises based on your cruising history, so that you can embark on another unforgettable journey. Book early and relish in savings, like a discounted fare for the first two guests in your stateroom. While on board subsequent cruises, you can even attend members-only events and meet other like-minded adventurers. As you continue to sail with Princess and reach new membership tiers, you can always enjoy these Gold-level benefits.

Ruby Membership Benefits

Ruby status can be achieved by sailing on four Princess itineraries. You may also reach this tier within two or three cruises if you book as single occupancy or a full suite*, which earns you double credits in our cruise loyalty program. In addition to all Gold-level benefits, you can also enjoy exclusive shoreside access to the Captain’s Circle Help Desk phone line. This means you can experience an expedited phone process when contacting the Membership Desk with any questions related to Captain's Circle. Those who purchase the standard Princess Vacation Protection will also receive a complimentary upgrade to the Platinum plan, which grants you even more coverage

*Excludes mini-suites, Club Class suites and paid upgrades to a full suite.

Platinum Membership Benefits

A lot of travel deserves a lot of benefits. Level up your perks after sailing on your 6th-15th cruise with Princess or after embarking on a 51 to 150-day itinerary. In addition to all Gold and Ruby benefits, skip the lines during embarkation and revel in priority check-in, so you can go from curbside to poolside even quicker. When it’s time to head home, get the same deluxe treatment with access to our Disembarkation Lounge. Sip on light refreshments in a serene setting alongside those sailing in the same stateroom. During your time on board, you’ll also be able to connect with loved ones at home with a complimentary internet package. Whether you want to video chat with your family and friends or share photos on social media, Princess makes it easy with the Platinum-level cruise loyalty program.

Elite Membership Benefits

The best of the best in benefits — meet Elite status, reserved for our most loyal guests and adventure enthusiasts. Reach our top-tier membership after sailing on 16 or more cruises or embarking on a 151-day or longer itinerary. In addition to all Gold, Ruby and Platinum perks, you’ll also receive benefits like priority embarkation and disembarkation in ports as well as a 10% discount in all Princess shops. Make the most of complimentary services like shoe polishing, afternoon tea, Grapevine wine tasting, laundry and professional cleaning services, as well as one entire mini bar for free. And on formal nights, enjoy hors d’oeuvres created by the chef. As a part of this cruise line loyalty program, you’ll even receive upgraded bathroom amenities for the ultimate pampering. To thank you for your loyalty, you’ll also receive exclusive pre-sale opportunities on all new sailings.
