Holland America's Mariner Society is a multi-tiered loyalty program for past passengers. Members earn "Cruise Day" credits based on days sailed, with double points for suite passengers and one bonus credit for every $300 spent onboard (limit one credit per day). All passengers are automatically enrolled in Holland America's loyalty program and will receive benefits at the start of their second sailing with the cruise line.
All members receive invites to an exclusive Mariner Society embarkation reception, a collectible gift and a subscription to Mariner magazine. Among the additional perks loyalty program members earn as they progress through the tiers are lapel pins, varied discounts on logo clothing, specialty dining charges, internet packages, Explorations Cafe purchases, wine packages, mini-bar purchases and spa treatments; free wine tastings, laundry and pressing; and priority disembarkation, tendering and check-in.
All Mariner Society members receive special offers on select Holland America sailings (typically 5 to 20 percent off), but check the savings against the regular discount rates available to find the best deal. One of the best aspects of the program is that even Star Mariner members will get a 50 percent discount on third and fourth passengers in the same cabin on select sailings. 2-Star and 3-Star Mariner members also get the 50 percent discount, while 4- and 5-Star members get free third and fourth passengers on select cruises.
