‘By extending the benefits of our Captain’s Circle loyalty program to our youth guests, they will remain more connected than ever to their friends and family and continue to share their joy of cruising with the world,’ Princess President Jan Swartz said.
Los Angeles native Wilkinson was just a year old when he started cruising, to the Mexican Riviera with his grandmother Renate Wilkinson, who introduced him to the joys of seagoing travel. In fact, he’s sailed to his favorite destination — Alaska — three times in the last three years alone.
Wilkinson’s next cruise will be to Mexico over Thanksgiving on Royal Princess.
A resident of north Montréal, Lavoie started earning his sea days cruising at the age of 4. He sailed on a world cruise in 2009 aboard Tahitian Princess and another world cruise in 2011 on Pacific Princess. He also completed a 60-day South America cruise in 2013 aboard Grand Princess.
Lavoie’s favorite destination is Cozumel because of the ‘vast selection of beach activities.’ His next cruise will be a two-week Christmas/New Year sailing on the new Sky Princess.
As elite-level members, Wilkinson and Lavoie now get all the program’s benefits. These are being rolled out to other youngsters in the club, with the appropriate level color displayed on their OceanMedallion and cruise card, complimentary Wi-Fi, priority embarkation and complimentary laundry.
