No... 10 Carnival cruises count only for Carnival perks and only Princess cruises count toward Princess perks. However, you do get a "past cruisers discount" on their sister lines.
Since they are sister cruise lines (both owned by Carnival Corp) I wondered why you get more perks sooner on Princess. Then I realized that where Princess offers about 20 3/4/5 day cruises a year...Carnival offers 875+. And since the perks are based on the number of cruises (regardless of their length)....10 3 or 4 days cruises on Carnival would be a lot easier to.
Personally, I am campaigning for Carnival to offer an Elite Card (Black) where you get the perks of all their sister ships after 25 Carnival cruises.
