Azamara Club Cruises rewards loyal guests with points and five levels of status in its Le Club Voyage program. Points are earned according to the cabin or suite category one sails in, with at least two points accrued per night onboard and double points bestowed upon solo travelers. Additionally, the line is now offering a new benefit wherein members get a $300 future cruise credit for every new referral that books and sails.
Overseeing all of the line’s loyalty is a singular ambassador, Nicole Lukacs, putting a friendly face to the program, and common to all tiers is quarterly 10 percent savings for select cruises, $398 per cabin category upgrades, an invite to special club cruises, ambassador and onboard hostess access, membership desk, onboard club party, exclusive news and offers, and bonus savings with Hertz.

Also, they get 30 free internet minutes and a 10 percent discount off spa treatments. Bumping up to the Explorer (150 to 299 points) level raises the future cruise savings to 4 percent, and members are entitled to two free nights on a cruise booked within a year of reaching said status.
