One thing I really like about Carnival's past passenger program is that the VIP treatment given to past passengers at the Platinum level is more comprehensive than that given to those who sail in suites. We're Gold members, and had VIP embarkation due to the suite. It was perfectly fine with us to get just that, as the loyal customers should be treated with considerably more.
