The Cruise Privileges Program is valid for cruises of five nights or more on select cruise lines. You’ll need to book through us. The program benefits require double occupancy, and the Platinum or Centurion cardmember must travel on the itinerary booked, although up to two other staterooms on the same sailing can be booked by the cardmember and also be eligible for the program’s benefits. So if you have the Amex Platinum, you could book a cruise trip for your family and everyone could enjoy the perks.
If you book an eligible cruise, you’ll receive exclusive benefits and complimentary amenities on your cruise. In particular, you’ll get a shipboard credit and additional exclusive amenities unique to each cruise line. These benefits aren’t available on Celebrity Cruises Galapagos Sailings, and additional amenities aren’t available on the Silversea Expedition Fleet.
For eligible cruises, the shipboard credit per stateroom depends on the type of stateroom:
There are some exceptions for particular stateroom types with select cruise providers:
All shipboard credits will be credited to your stateroom folio upon checkout, but they can’t be used for casino charges or gratuities.
For eligible cruises, you’ll get an additional amenity unique to each cruise line:
Fine Hotels and Resorts Benefits:
Here are the perks you’ll receive with every Fine Hotels and Resorts booking you make with us, regardless of the length of your stay:
To get these Fine Hotels and Resorts benefits, the cardmember must stay on the itinerary booked. However, you can book up to three rooms for a stay under your account and all three rooms will qualify for these benefits. If you need to book more than three rooms for a trip with family or friends, keep in mind that you can get up to three authorized users for $175 total per year (see rates & fees) on the Amex Platinum consumer card. These additional cardholders could book more rooms under their own accounts.
Here are some – but not nearly all – hotels that currently offer a free third or fourth night for Fine Hotel and Resort bookings:
With the Amex Platinum Card or Amex Business Platinum Card, you have access to the following types of lounges:
You can find participating airport lounges during your travels by using the Global Lounge Collection website’s search function. American Express states that you’ll have access to more than 1,300 airport lounges across 140 countries. But Priority Pass alone claims to have over 1,300 lounges in more than 600 cities across 148 countries. So, even if American Express’ numbers are slightly outdated, that still means most of the lounges you can use are Priority Pass lounges.
American Express Platinum Complimentary Personal Concierge:
If you’re short on time, consider outsourcing your trip planning to the Amex Platinum Concierge. With the Platinum Card, Business Platinum Card or Centurion (Black Card), you get access to a special phone service to assist you in booking top restaurants and events, as well as finding a perfect dinner spot or even delivering items on demand and other tasks.
Complimentary Marriott and Hilton Elite Status:
The Platinum Card offers Gold Elite status in the Marriott Bonvoy program, along with Hilton Honors Gold Elite status. Both hotel chains offer on-property benefits such as late checkout and bonus earnings on stays to elite-status members.
