Earlier this month Disney Cruise Line updated their Castaway Club benefits with some changes and new perks for their return cruisers. Castaway Club is Disney Cruise Line’s loyalty program that guests are automatically enrolled in after their first cruise. The Silver level members have completed 1 Disney cruise, Gold members have completed 5, and Platinum level is attained after 10.
CASTAWAY CLUB BENEFIT CHANGES
Previously, only Gold and Platinum level members could make advance bookings a day earlier than the general public. With the new changes, DCL has broken up this privilege into a tier structure. Platinum Castaway members can now book 3 days in advance, Gold members can do this 2 days in advance, and Silver members have the new perk of making advance bookings 1 day before general booking begins.
Another change is that the Gold and Platinum onboard reception, which previously was offered on sailings of 4-nights or longer, will now only be offered on sailings 8-nights or longer. The description of this event changed as well. Before it was described as “a private party where Gold and Platinum Castaway members can meet and mingle with senior ship officers” to “a private reception where Gold and Platinum members will experience special entertainment”.
Disney also stated that all of their Platinum and Gold Castaway Club members will be emailed the following exclusive booking opportunity:
