All Crystal Society Membership Benefits Program rewards and cruise levels are per person, non-transferable (in whole or in part) and may not be redeemed as cash. Solo travelers receive the per-person rewards and benefits listed in the Crystal Society Membership Benefits brochure. Guests must physically embark on and complete a non-concession or full-fare voyage to receive credit for a particular cruise. All rewards convert to current year of redemption. All shipboard credits are applicable to the first two guests in a booking, and are redeemable for purchases limited to current ship offering.

Upgrades may not be requested after embarkation. Credits earned after embarkation may not be applied to your current combination of multiple voyages. A new booking made on board to extend your cruise vacation may apply, but only at the discretion of the Crystal Society Department. Changes made to bookings will be based on pricing in effect at time of requested Milestone approval, not at the time of the booking. Upgrades are not available on River or Yacht Expedition cruises. All ocean stateroom upgrades apply to ocean cruises up to 12 days in length (depending on Milestone reward). Upgrades must be pre-arranged at least 21 days before departure and are subject to space availability at the time of the reservation. Free cruise benefit and stateroom and Penthouse upgrades will not be granted on board and are not re-calculated for back-to-back sailings or multi-cruise reservations. Special Ocean Penthouse Amenity Package/ocean only: If a Crystal Society member redeems his or her Penthouse Amenity Package and is also on a Crystal “Classic” or “Classic-Plus” Hotel Program, he or she may either take the complimentary private car transfer offered with the Special Penthouse Amenity Package, or the city tour and motor coach transfer offered with the Hotel Programs, but not both. No cash credit will be given for the unused transportation and/or tour, and the Special Amenity is forfeited if not utilized in conjunction with the shipboard ocean credit on the same voyage. All ocean free cruise rewards are cruise only, based on ocean stateroom/Penthouse availability at the time of the reservation, and apply to cruises between 7 and 12 days in length. Requests must be made at least 21 days in advance. Ocean free cruises and upgrades may not be re-fared or redeemed after final payment is made, and are subject to space availability.
