Its hard to believe but I have cruised with NCL for a whopping 84 nights! It is absolutely mad to think that I have spent almost 3 months at sea, what a happy few months. Because of the amount of time I have spent onboard I have a latitudes reward status of platinum. Platinum status is between 80-174 nights at sea so I have quite a long way to go before I can 'level up'. To read about my experience with the Platinum perks click here: NCLs platinum rewards status.\r\n\r\n"As a member, you receive one rewards point for every night you cruise with us. You earn an additional point per night for booking in a Suite* or in The Haven or booking with a Latitudes special offer."\r\n\r\nEverybody is automatically enrolled on the latitudes programme after their first cruise. Guests returning for a second cruise can expect a number of perks:\r\nBronze perks (1-29 nights):\r\n\r\n\r\n \tPriority check in. I'm not sure how good this one is as I'm normally in the Platinum queue.\r\n \tA bottle of sparkling wine per stateroom (woohoo!)\r\n \t10% off the duty free shops.\r\n \tA number of other perks which I don't really think are that interesting...\r\n\r\nSilver perks (30-54 nights):\r\n\r\n \tThe same as the above plus...\r\n \tExclusive cocktail party. (I've never actually gone to this, the whole ship is a party to me! Good if you want to make friends though).\r\n \t10% off shore excursions. They can get expensive so any discount is good in my book!\r\n \t20% discount on photos.\r\n\r\nGold perks (55-79):\r\n\r\n \tAll of the above plus...\r\n \t1 bottle of water per stateroom, I hope this is a big bottle.\r\n \t50% off a bag of laundry.\r\n \tPriority tender tickets.\r\n \tPriority disembarkation (if you're from the US).\r\n\r\nPlatinum perks (80-174):\r\n\r\n \tAll of the stuff above and...\r\n \tPriority embarkation, this wasn't a benefit when I cruised last May but it does sound good. I always want to get on the ship as soon as possible and this would help with that plan... straight to the food I say.\r\n \tDinner for two at Cagneys with a bottle of wine (per stateroom).\r\n \tDinner for Two at Moderno or La Cucina (per stateroom).\r\n \t30 mins free internet. This is a perk which I am actually really excited about. I rarely buy internet onboard cruise ships because of the cost but a free 30 minutes would be good. Just enough time to send a few photos and check your emails. Perfect!\r\n \tBehind the scenes ship tour.\r\n \tFree bag of laundry. I LOVED this one. My boyfriend and I washed a whole bag of t-shirts which was really helpful as we packed light. (We packed for two weeks in a cabin bag actually! To read more about that click here: Packing for two weeks in a cabin bag.)\r\n\r\nPlatinum plus perks (175 - 699):\r\n\r\n \tIt blows my mind a little that people can have racked up this many nights at sea (lucky them)! They get all of the perks above plus...\r\n \tDinner with the officers. I honestly don't understand why people want to do this, it doesn't interest me.\r\n \tPriority restaurant and entertainment seating.\r\n\r\nAmbassador (700+):\r\n\r\n \t700 nights!! That's almost two years. This status gets everything mentioned above and...\r\n \tA complimentary 7 day cruise!! I can't help thinking that if you can afford 700 days at sea you can probably afford another 7. A free 7 day cruise would probably mean a lot more to somebody with a bronze\/gold\/platinum status than somebody who already almost lives on a cruise ship. (I'm just jealous...)\r\n\r\nPlease note: Discounts on shops\/photos do increase as you rise through the tiers. I just didn't write them all down. Everything listed was correct as of February 2017 but please do check with NCL if you are unsure of anything!\u00a0https:\/\/www.ncl.com\/uk\/en\/latitudes-rewards-program\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nI love the perks which I experienced when last travelling with NCL and my platinum status. I doubt I will be getting to the higher tier anytime soon, but I am only 22. Could be cruising til I'm 100! Who knows...\r\n\r\nWhat tier are you and what benefits do you enjoy? Let me know in the comments!
