There seems to be some glitch in the computer system if you are grandfathered in and do not have 75 points under the new program. I booked the cruise and paid in full. All of my cruise docs said Gold, My account said Gold, etc. Etc.

After calling 2 different departments, I finally got in with of all departments tech support. They looked at the cruise history and said they submitted me as Platinum and to check back in 24 hours.

I did check back in 24 hours and it still showed Gold. I them went to look at the luggage tags and boarding passes again and sure enough all said VIP and it listed me as Platinum on Boarding pass now.

So, I believe it is on the 10th sailing not after but be prepared to work for it a little, not that you should have to, just reporting what I have found today.
I recommend printing out a copy of your cruise history, just in case, and bring with you. Stranger things have happened.

I show you my experiences and leave it up to you to decide if it is for you or not.
