Does anyone know about the VIP program from Carnival? I thought past guests from Carnival could sail as past guests on their sister ships.
Well, we were thinking about booking a 3 day cruise in May on Princess. When I talked to the booking agent, she said they didnít do that. I may have misunderstood, but I thought that was one of the privileges.

The VIP you are talking about is "Vacation Interchange Priviledges". It is the program between Carnival Cruise Lines, Holland America, Cunard, Costa, Seabourn, and Princess; whom all belong to the World's Leading Cruise Lines. So yes, you are correct about past guests. It is for select past guest priviledges. Perhaps the sailing you were looking at didn't offer any past guest specials. The reservation agent may have been new and just wasn't aware of the program.

Thanks Cruise Fanatic!

The priviledges have always been confusing to me about this program. I knew about the past guest specials. I have never asked what the other priviledges are. This is a good question!

About the only thing the VIP is good for is obtaining the "past-guest" rate when booking the cruise. No additional perks apply after that point from what I have seen.

It would be awesome however if they would allow you to combine the cruise credits of all of the company-lines. Another neat step would be to honor any other lines status on your next cruise, even if it were just a trial period. That sure would get the loyalists to try out another cruise line without losing any status or level of service!
