We just got a perk for being a Carnival Platinum Card member ( over 10 cruises)! We just went on our 14th Carnival cruise. On Friday night we received a letter in our mailbox outside our cabin door which stated that as a valued Carnival Platinum Card member we are invited to join early debarkation ( this was not the self-assist group). We were able to leave the ship at 8:30. We did not carry our luggage off.
This worked out great for us! Carnival tells us that there are more perks to be added!
