It was expected. Its the result of a pathetic policy (giving multi cruise credits for cheap 3-Nighters and 2 Nighters and giving D and DP status to family members regardless if they had cruises on RCI or not) and fraud (inviting friends and lower C & A status members into the CL).
Thankfully I do not cruise for the benefits and thankfully I decided a couple months ago to spread my wings and broaden my horizon.
I am going on my long cruises on different lines anyways and still will use RCI for the fill ins. Those smaller ships usually do not have CLs anyways.
It is only disappointing because it was preventable.
