Hotel status matches are a treat for business travellers and frequent flyers – and now there's a way to turn your status with some of the world's leading hotel chains into VIP standing with a cruise line!
A unique promotion from the popular Mediterranean line MSC Cruises offers a free upgrade to Silver, Gold and Black levels in its Voyager Club loyalty program, based on your status with any of the following hotel reward schemes:
- Accor’s Le Club Accorhotels
- Best Western Rewards
- Fairmont President’s Club
- Hilton Honors
- Hyatt Gold Passport
- Marriott Rewards
- Starwood Preferred Guest
- Ritz-Carlton Rewards
(If you hold status with a hotel loyalty program not on the list above, it won't hurt to apply anyway...)
It's a great opportunity for first-time cruisers to get their feet wet, as it were, and still enjoy a range of creature comforts include priority boarding and disembarkation, welcome cocktails, late cabin checkout (up to two hours after your ship arrives in port), a free spa session and a tasting menu dinner for two at one of the ship’s speciality restaurants, depending on your Voyager Club status.
Guests who sign up through MSC's status match promotion will also receive a 5% discount on any booking.
