Reader's Digest Condensed Version as I understand it.
If you are Gold with less than 25 days, you are Red.
No grandfathering because you really are not losing anything since they replaced the Past Guest free drink with the Comedy Brunch free drink.
If you are Gold with 25 days but less than 75 days, you are still Gold.
If you are Gold, you have until the END of 2013 to be make Platinum based on the number of cruises, not days.
If you are Platinum now, you will be Platinum when the program starts regardless of the number of days.
Everyone was grandfathered in.***
If you are Milestone with less than 200 days, you will now get a Platinum card.
Since apparently that is what folks were suppose to be getting anyway.
If you are Milestone with more than 200 days, you are now Diamond.
*** Platinum members with less than 75 days that were grandfathered in will have their ACTUAL days show on their day count. No days are added, but you are still Platinum. The computer makes a special notation of that.
