Credit cards associated with cruise lines are sailing to new heights with the introduction of Norwegian Cruise Line’s suite of MasterCards. The new program, issued through MBNA, offers an extremely generous rewards program. “Norwegian Cruise Line Platinum Plus MasterCard” and the “Orient Lines Platinum Plus MasterCard” offers the opportunity to earn three points for every $100 charged and one additional point, or a total of four, for every $100 in purchases of products or services of NCL, Orient Lines or Star Cruises. The points can be redeemed for stateroom upgrades and “good-as-cash” cruise certificate credits with all the brands in the Star Cruises Group – NCL, Orient Lines and Star Cruises. The card has no annual fee and a 12.99% fixed APR with a six-cycle intro rate of 0%. The Norwegian Cruise Line Group is also giving travel agents a $25 commission for every credit card application they generate that is approved and activated. Miami-based Norwegian Cruise Line operates a fleet of nine ships sailing to more than 140 ports around the world. For more information visit www.ncl.com.
