Royal Caribbean International and MGM Mile Marketing Partnership

If you are an Mlife member and are planning on taking a cruise on Royal Caribbean, here is some great news for you:  Your tier status with MLife transfers over to Royal Caribbean Casino Royale!

I recently sailed on the Allure of the Seas and, prior to sailing, I called Royal Caribbean’s Casino Royale and had my Mlife account linked to my sailing.    

 What do you receive with Mlife?  It is based upon your MLife level and like Royal Caribbean’s tier status, the more you spend, the higher your MLife tier becomes and the greater the rewards.

The basic benefits begin with Mlife credits for gambling and can culminate with a complimentary annual cruise.  As I have the Chase Hyatt credit card (a great credit card for cruisers which will be discussed later), I automatically
qualify for Gold tier benefits with Mlife).

What does my Gold tier status provide?    Upon entering my stateroom, I had a letter from the casino welcoming me to the cruise.  Once we set sail and the casino opened, I visited the Casino Host and he placed a sticker on my SeaPass that provided complimentary drink vouchers, a complimentary dinner for 2 at a specialty restaurant (a $50+ value) and told me about the priority wait-list for entertainment venues on the ship.  The priority
wait-list is very valuable, especially on the Allure and the Oasis, where reservations for the shows are required.  This Skip-the-Line benefit allows you to go to the head of the line for seats at any shows you have not pre-reserved.   I just presented my SeaPass with the sticker and was promptly ushered into the showroom.  Nice!!

What else does Gold level offer on Royal Caribbean?  5 MLife credits for every Casino Royale point earned, departure lounge access, priority check-in and SeaPass cash advances with no fee (a great benefit as you can bypass the onboard ATM and its associated fee). 

Why not let Nationwide Cruises and Vacations assist you with your cruise and linking it to your MLife account by calling us at 770-729-1881?
