Hard Rock and Royal Caribbean Team Up for Unrivaled Leisure Experience


In an electrifying convergence of entertainment and leisure, tribal casino colossus, Hard Rock International, and cruising titan, the Royal Caribbean Group, unveiled a far-reaching agreement on Friday. The ground-breaking alliance capitalizes on both companies’ popular travel and leisure loyalty programs, meant to create a seamless recreational experience for their members.

In the jargon of the casino and the cruise ship, patrons of Unity by Hard Rock, Celebrity Cruises’ Blue Chip Club, and Royal Caribbean’s Club Royale will be dealt a winning hand. These high-stakes players can now notch up points in a myriad of ways; from wagering, dining, and shopping at any participating Hard Rock venue, to voyaging on virtually all Royal Caribbean cruise ships and Celebrity vessels.

Raising the ante, Unity by Hard Rock loyalty members will also relish price cuts on Royal Caribbean and Celebrity holidays. They will further stand a chance to earn an exclusive invitation to cruise giveaways. Those attaining top-tier membership status will have a chance to partake in a gratis annual cruise on select ships and itineraries, as per the statement.

Proudly representing the gaming branch of Florida’s Seminole Tribe, Hard Rock stands shoulder to shoulder with the renowned Royal Caribbean. The latter is a proud behemoth among global cruise operators, with both enterprises making waves as two of the biggest private sector employers in South Florida.

Through this deal, Royal Caribbean broadens its gaming territories, having built a reputation for featuring casinos on many of its ships, a characteristic that continues to buoy its continued expansion. As of February, the billion-dollar Sun Princess – a proud fleet member of the Royal Caribbean’s Princess unit – set sail boasting the largest casino ever aboard a cruise vessel.

This treasure trove has, however, not always sailed smooth sea with its patrons; some disgruntled clients have taken issue with Royal Caribbean’s multiple loyalty programs across the different brands. This brews a storm in a teacup where points accrued on a Celebrity cruise ship don’t mutually stack up with those gained on Princess or Royal Caribbean boats.

The newly inked pact with Hard Rock might steer clear of these choppy waters. At the heart of this, it provides cruise operator clients with another enticing draw to amass points. Club Royale and Blue Chip Club members, for instance, can spice up their trips to Hard Rock with special privileges and incentives, including once-a-year complimentary stays at selected Hard Rock hotels and casinos across the globe, as noted in the press release.

Unity by Hard Rock, which emerged fresh off the dock this year, replaced the erstwhile gaming company’s Wild Card rewards program. Featuring four tantalizing tiers – Star, Legend, Icon, and X – Unity gracefully connects all of North American gaming venues, including the ebullient Hard Rock Casino in the captivating Punta Cana, Dominican Republic.

Under the aegis of Seminole Gaming, six gaming venues bear the inscription of the Tribe. The Hard Rock imprint graces a significantly larger number of casino hotels, including regional establishments across Canada, the US Midwest, and the South, along with the Atlantic City Boardwalk in New Jersey.

The Hard Rock name adorns several tribal casinos in the Golden State and Seminole manages these. The Tribe also plays an active role operating the notorious Mirage on the Las Vegas Strip and is in contention for a sought-after casino license in Queens, NY.
