I have seen people discuss the fact that cruise lines give perks to repeat cruisers such as VIP treatment after 10 cruises and such. My questions is how many cruises do you have to do before they start giving you perks and what kind of perks they give you

If you go to any of the cruise line sites you should be able to click on a link to their loyalty program for a list of the perks.

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.

Hi LHP and all,

I got my Docs Saturday, which was a surprise being I am more than 4 weeks out.

The most cool thing was when I opened the envelope, and it said for the first time "Proceed to Carnival's VIP Check-In upon arrival". It was a pretty neat feeling.

But, if I added everything up that I have spent with Carnival over the years, is a pretty well paid for perk. I do appreciate them recognizing me as a loyal customer.

Best to all,
IslandCruz

How exciting! I understand the "costs" as well, since your family of four are all Platinum. On the Pride in March we got 4 Logo cloth beach bags. I ended up giving 2 of them to some friends who were cruising with us.

I don't gamble, but the free slots tournament was fun.

Our dining times are guaranteed. And we did not have to chase down to the lounge to get a tender ticket...we just flash the ole' Platinum and board. (which will come in handy on our cruise in 2 weeks since 3 of our ports are tendered).

But the best is walking up to the Platinum line (or should I say the lack of a line) at the Purser's Desk when we need something!!

Love it!!
