I too have been loyal, I enjoyed the CL for the first time on Mariner this month. It has taken me 9 years to get to Diamond, now they throw the screws at me! RC is basically claiming it is due to overcrowding in the CL. On Mariner Feb 22 - Mar 1 the first two nights the CL was packed, after the 2nd night they moved the function to the Lotus Lounge, at no time did I see more than probably 40-50 persons in the Lotus Lounge and I realized this was a great perk! Shame on RC for giving and then taking, this is a great way to run loyalty off.
