Leave it to Carnival to say "scratch our back (by booking cruises) and we will scratch yours (with perks) and really mean....

"scratch our back and we will put a knife in yours...for the right price"
I agree tired of my perks being diluted......I think I'll save myself some money (in the form of not buying 3 or 4 drinks upon boarding) and start getting to the pier around 2pm.

We may have been mistaken as to the letter of the law, but the application of the law was that those of us that are milestone were being treated as though it was a separate level....

Well, I consider myself a cheerleader up to this point, but I'm really starting to shake my head.....not thrilled that there will be even more people in the security line or at the VIP line at guest for the rooms being ready and early luggage......that's never been a concern for me...

The worst part of cruising for me is getting through security, standing in the guest services line and VIP debarkation........all of which are now going to be even worse........
