Default Perks for 1st Time Cruisers

I have sailed Carnival many times (Platinum status and working toward milestone). I have introduced a lot of friends and family to cruising for the first time. Recently I was helping a co-worker find a good cruise for their family of 4. They are newbies and I was explaining the types of discounts and sales that Carnival offers, and said that sometimes they offer past guest discounts. My friend said, "well maybe they need to consider giving a big discount, like a one-time introductory rate to new guests." I thought, well even though they do have sales, this might catch on. What do you think?

With all the ships sailing completely full, and wait lists on more and more cruises, why should the cruise lines give perks to first timers?

Do they need longer wait lists?
