I think this will be a great program. I will only have 26 points if they convert my current cruises. I have also traveled 2 times on Royal Caribbean. We live in Minnesota so we don't take a ton of cruises we have only done 6 but I am very excited for the new program. It will be more like Royal Caribbean where our number of cruises were converted to points. I would think Carnival would also do that because if they make me start from scratch I will never go on Carnival again and stick with Royal Caribbean where my past cruises were honored. I think Carnival knows to transfer cruises to points and giver past credit. I also thought that after 1 cruise being Gold was too fast. Now I will stay Gold if everything slides over like it should.
