Royal Caribbean Cruises and PNC Bank have separately introduced new Visa Signature credit cards this month, offering their customers bigger bonuses and enhanced point earning capabilities as well as more options when it comes to cashing in for trips or merchandise.

The Royal Caribbean Cruises Visa Signature card has a 15,000 point sign-up bonus and offers double points for every dollar spent on bookings with the cruise line. Cardholders can also earn two-for-one airfare when they spend $3,500 or more during their first 90 days.

There are three card offerings through Bank of America, each co-branded to a different cruise line under the Royal Caribbean umbrella including luxury Azamara Club Cruises, Celebrity Cruises and Royal Caribbean International.

The MyCruise Rewards earned with these cards can be redeemed for cruises, stateroom upgrades, merchandise, and on-board credits while at sea. These Signature cards also come with a variety of Visa perks including concierge service, lost luggage protection, worldwide access to emergency cash, and travel accident insurance.

New travel card lineup

Earlier this month, PNC Bank released two new Visa Signature travel cards – the Premier Traveler and Premier Traveler Reserve. The cards feature 24-hour support, concierge service for special requests and travel issues, and flexible rewards with monthly bonuses. They also include a chip for secure usage worldwide.

With PNC’s Premier Traveler, cardholders earn one mile for every dollar they spend. They also receive one discounted airline ticket for a companion each year. The annual fee is $95.

The PNC Premier Traveler Reserve offers members more earning power–two miles for every dollar they spend.  This includes two discounted companion airline tickets and $200 worth of reimbursements for airline incidentals every year. Members also receive 15,000 bonus miles on their anniversary when they spend $50,000 or more annually. This card costs $395 a year.

Rewards can be redeemed for hotel rooms, car rentals, airline tickets, and cruises.
