I am not a Diamond + person yet with RCCL, but think there should be some special benefits available to those people who reach that status. I think there should be about 100 free minutes on Internet, $25.00 credit for free laundry service and free coke passes. Do any of you have any suggestions that should be awarded to people with at least 24 cruises with a cruise line.

One of the reasons we like Princess is once you're Platinum you get 250 free internet minutes each. The 500 minutes we had made it very convenient to keep in touch with family at home.

Free laundry service or some discount on RCI would be good since they don't have a self-service laundry.

Default Royal Caribbean and Princess are the least greatful.

Priority Tender Embarkation
As a well-traveled guest with Princess, you have the opportunity to travel ashore quickly and without waiting in line. Simply present your Priority Tender Ticket directly at the gangway instead of waiting with other passengers in the lounge area. You will then join any remaining passengers and board the tender as soon as it is clear to embark.

Priority Disembarkation
You'll be contacted towards the end of your cruise by the Circle Host to determine approximately what time would be most convenient for your disembarkation. If you'd like to linger onboard longer, we'll be more than happy to give you a later disembarkation group. If you'd like to be one of the first groups to disembark, we'll gladly accommodate - the choice is yours!

As all know, RCI diamonds do not have what they used to have-so I guess you got your wish to the detriment of many others.
