Starting Wednesday (April 24), and through to this Friday (April 26), Virgin Voyages will open up its Sailing Club Status Match to honour other airline and hotel loyalty programs. 

Travellers part of Marriott Bonvoy, American Airlines' AAdvantage, Delta SkyMiles and Hilton Honours (among many others) will gain access to Virgin Voyages' "Blue Extras," with things like one free bag of laundry, speciality coffee, access to an exclusive cocktail event and more.

It's worth noting as Virgin Voyages' Status Match usually only applies to other cruise loyalty programs. Now, avid travellers can set sail on the high seas this summer in style.

For readers to take advantage of this, they'll need to book one of the select voyages during our Sail & Save promo (April 24-26), with voyages starting at $99 per Sailor per night. Then they'll need to submit proof of their travel loyalty program by April 26th. 

Once that is complete, Blue Extra Perks will be granted on their first voyage. For more details on Virgin Voyages Sailing Club, visit this page

American Airlines AAdvantage
Delta SkyMiles
Southwest Rapid Rewards
Frontier Miles
JetBlue TrueBlue
Marriott Bonvoy
