Royal Caribbean Partners with MGM Resorts

Hello, everyone.  It’s great to be back for my second blog. And it happens to be about a wonderfully exciting partnership and event that we hosted in Las Vegas during the weekend of February 22nd through 24th with MGM Resorts International. We launched our M life program with 91 of our Crown & Anchor Society members at the Mansion at MGM Grand Las Vegas, which typically has very limited access. Our guests were invited based on their loyalty tier, and during this very exclusive event, they stayed at the MGM Grand Las Vegas, and received complimentary accommodations in premium view guest rooms, limo transportation, VIP check-in, welcome amenity and gift, and complimentary show tickets!  This event provided top loyalty members unprecedented recognition for their dedication to Royal Caribbean.

Invited Crown & Anchor members were hosted by Royal Caribbean Senior Executives – Adam Goldstein, myself, Lisa Bauer, Susan Bonner and Diana Block, just to name a few.  We were also hosted by senior executives from the MGM Resorts and we want to extend our sincere thanks to them for hosting us so graciously and fabulously… It was a wonderful, VIP weekend, and we are very grateful to them for all of the terrific hospitality they showed us for the entire weekend. You may view some of our photos here.

Through our new relationship with MGM Resorts, our Crown and Anchor members (based on tier) are entitled to accelerated M life benefits at participating MGM Resorts’ destinations. This program provides more access, rewards and benefits for our members on land and at sea… Exciting, huh?

Participating M life destinations include: ARIA (Las Vegas), Bellagio (Las Vegas), Vdara (Las Vegas), MGM Grand (Las Vegas), The Signature at MGM Grand (Las Vegas), Mandalay Bay (Las Vegas), THEhotel at Mandalay Bay (Las Vegas), Mirage (Las Vegas), Monte Carlo (Las Vegas), New York-New York (Las Vegas), Luxor (Las Vegas), Excalibur (Las Vegas), Gold Strike Tunica (Tunica, MS), Beau Rivage (Biloxi, MS), and MGM Grand Detroit (Detroit, MI).

And if you’ve sailed with Royal Caribbean International and haven’t joined our Crown & Anchor Society, this is a great time to do so. For our Crown & Anchor members reading this post, look for an exclusive M life offer in the next Crown & Anchor Society Newsletter.

In closing, I would like to once again give sincere and heartfelt thanks to our colleagues at MGM Resorts. They were the ultimate hosts to us and our most valued guests. We look forward to a long and mutually beneficial partnership.

All my best,

Lisa Lutoff-Perlo

    So happy to see you can now get points in Vegas. Looking fwd. to our 2 week retirement cruise in Feb., then Quantum of the Sea in November. Can’t wait for that one. Only one small disappointment. When we booked our retirement cruise we booked a junior suite thinking you got the added bonuses. Just found out you don’t receive any of the extra’s with a junior. Booked this a year and a half ago on another cruise. Unfortunately the person who booked it didn’t tell us this. A little disappointed but looking forward to the cruise anyway. Always treated right on Royal Caribbean
