I totally agree, Dwayne. I don't know how it could possibly hurt them, it's not like the "perks" cost them that much. If they do it within their "sister" lines, it still goes into the coffers.
I know! They could just open up more past guest offers and maybe give us VIP embarkation or something. I wouldn't expect all the perks, just something. Maybe they don't want the Carnival folk mixing with the Princess people, or vice versa, or something.
