Conditions of Membership
1.Qualification: After completion of a first CMV ocean or river cruise of any duration, passengers will automatically qualify for Silver membership of the Columbus Club. Thereafter, the range of benefits for each tier of membership will become applicable from the second CMV ocean or river cruise taken.
2.Club Benefits & Rewards: The range of benefits and rewards, as detailed in this booklet, depend upon the tier of membership which is based on the number of nights cruised. It should be noted that:i.The exclusive repeaters onboard cocktail party will not be available for cruises of under 5 nights duration.
ii.The fast track embarkation and disembarkation facility cannot always be guaranteed at all turnaround ports of call.

3.Membership Charges: There is no charge for membership. However, CMV reserves the right to review and amend the tiers of membership and reward packages. In the event of any changes, all club members will be notified in advance.
4.Future Cruise Discounts: Please note that while future cruise discounts can be applied against the best available published CMV fare at the time of booking including full, saver and buy one get one half price fare promotions, the discount cannot be combined with any other promotional fares including but not limited to; buy one get one free promotions, group fares, vouchers and any other discount offers. If a club member books onboard for a future cruise where a future cruise discount applies they will still enjoy the advantage of a complimentary one category upgrade incentive deal for ocean view cabins only from twin categories 1-11 which is available to all passengers.
5.Working with our travel trade partners: All club members are still entitled to the full range of rewards when booking through a travel agent or tour operator and are actively encouraged to continue booking future cruises with their regular agent or operator. Any bookings taken onboard our ships will also be referred back to the booking agency.
6.Agreement: In being a qualifying member of the Columbus Club, all passengers agree to the aforementioned Conditions of Membership. Passengers can cancel their club membership at any time by notifying CMV accordingly.


Are CMV having a larf? 5% discount after you have sailed 100 nights with CMV. Hope MSC don't get wind of this - you get 5% just after one cruise! And 10% after 200 nights -I think MSC give double the discount after half the number of nights on board!

Sounds quite tight-fisted really. Discounts on shore excursions seem as if they are only applied if you book onboard - most people prefer to prebook shore excursions I think.
CRUISES BOOKED:
Spirit of Discovery - Oct 2019, Feb 2020, April 2020, August 2020, Dec 2020
Spirit of Adventure - September 2020
