How do cruise lines reward your loyalty?

Champagne

Canny cruisers know how to extract maximum enjoyment – and value – from their holidays. Those people you see wearing enamel pins, clutching exclusive invitations as they queue for the private drinks party that wasn’t in your daily programme? They are the ones who have been collecting points. And what do points mean? Danielle Fear finds out how many you need to qualify for free internet, free laundry… or a free ice cream.
