MSC Current Status Match Tables

Recommended Posts

Hoping to create some kind of central location for people who have successfully status matched, feel free to update with your experience. Please try to keep it in order so that it's easy to find.

Column 1 is the place you have your non-MSC status, Column 2 is the level of that status, Column 3 is the MSC status that was matched to.

 

As I understand

Hilton Diamond = Gold

Marriott Gold = Silver

 

Anyone matched from IHG Platinum who can shed some light on what that matches to?

 

Thanks.

I would suggest that you also ask the Mods to make this a 'Sticky' thread, so that it'll stay on the main page.

NCL Platinum now matches to Gold I believe.

 

At the time my NCL Platinum matched to Black - can't remember exactly when but very early on in the programme.

There is no sense putting info into the database from people who matched before October 2018.

Agree,

just current or after October 2018

My wife and I status matched RCCL Diamond to MSC Black last October.

Others mentioned above are Diamond Plus, but only matched to Gold on MSC

Your mileage may vary depending on who you talk to on the phone. My wife is MSC Black from Hilton Diamond. We got lucky based on everything I have read on CC

Well that's interesting. So in addition to the match, they also give you the corresponding points towards the next level of status? Because most status match/grant programs will only give the status but not the points/nights/flights/etc. Auto Marriott Gold from the Bonvoy Brilliant Amex, for example, does not also give you the 25 nights that you ordinarily would accrue to make it to Gold normally. As I understand, the Royal/Celebrity/Azamara match also doesn't include the points, only the status.

When we matched Princess Elite to MSC Black in March 2019, we each received 10,000 points but I guess since there isn't a next level (at least not yet) that isn't important.

On a sidenote, which one of y'all submitted their Marriott/SPG Platinum and only got Silver? There were a couple of other folks in a different thread who noted that they got Gold for Gold, sounds like you got robbed 😝

We are RCCL Emerald, is there any kind of status match?  We are looking into booking one of their Caribbean ships for January 2020.

Same here - gold match at 4300 points.  I seem to see a pattern . . .

We matched Carnival Diamond to MSC Black but that was in 2016.  We got 10,000 points.

What was the average timeframe for learning which match level MSC placed you into after submitting the form on the website?
