American Express currently has three targeted year end cruise deals for Silversea Cruises, Royal Caribbean International, and Holland America Line ending in late December. Enrollment is required and terms apply.

We previously posted the Sweet Silversea Cruises American Express Offer: Earn 25,000 Bonus Points back in September when it launched.  As a reminder this offer will expire on December 29, 2023

These two latest offers for Royal Caribbean International and Holland America Line were just introduced in the last few days and will expire by the end of the month.

Here are the specifics for the Royal Caribbean International American Express offer:

AmEx Royal Caribbean International Offer

AmEx Royal Caribbean International Details

We value American Express® Membership Rewards® points at about 1.5 cents each (and that’s relatively conservative). So, the bonus points promotion is worth around $375 (in our opinion).

I received this Royal Caribbean International offer on my American Express® Gold Card, but I imagine this is also offered on other American Express cards.  For those with multiple cards in your household targeted by this offer, you may want to split payments on these pricey cruises to maximize your points. The offer is good through December 31, 2023.

Royal Caribbean International Amex Offer Exclusions

The offer specifically excludes the following unless booked at the time of reservation:

  • onboard purchases
  • gift cards (e-gift and physical)
  • pre- and post- transfers
  • MGM Resort International Joint Vacation and Royal Wedding Packages
  • purchases with other Royal Caribbean lines – Celebrity Cruise, TUI Cruises and Silversea

Here are the specifics for the Holland American Line American Express offer:

AmEx Holland American Line Offer

AmEx Holland American Line Details

This offer is for cash back as a statement credit.  If you maximize by making a $1,000 payment you would be receiving a 30% rebate.

I also received this Holland America Line offer on my American Express® Gold Card, but I imagine this is also offered on other American Express cards.  For those with multiple cards in your household targeted by this offer, you may want to split payments on these pricey cruises to maximize your points. The offer is good through December 29, 2023.

Holland American Line Amex Offer Exclusions

The Fine Print

We’ve seen similar offers like this for many of the cruise lines targeting US frequent floaters.  It pays to keep an eye out for these AmEx offers from your favorite cruise lines.

I hope many of you can take advantage of these Year End American Express Cruise Offers and combine them with current “Black Friday” deals that seem to be hanging around through at least mid-December.
