Default Yes, Even I Have A Question

If you cruise on other lines that belong to Carnival, does it count toward you reaching Platinum status on Carnival?

Kuki is right as usual! It seems that especially since they require 10 cruises to reach Platinum, that they'd count others, but sadly they don't. Also, they don't count any cruises before 1982, but I found some old "Carnival Cruise Cards" and they did allow those to be counted, since I could give them folio numbers, ship, cabin and even dining room table.

Later,

Ken

Others of course know better than myself, but I think all lines have something. I'm not sure who has the best.

Hello Gail, You become a "star" on your 10th cruise! That's when your platinum status starts with Carnival. Most other lines, it starts with your 5th cruise, but you don't get as much "stuff" as Carnival gives.
Happy sailing,

Ken

What are the perks for platinum club? I know vip boarding is one. I have a long way to go, but if the perks are really good, it is certainly incentive to not book with any other cruiselines for my future cruises, so I can get to the magic number 10 sooner.

KruisinKimmy,

Read the thread "Platinum Card" to get answers to your questions about the card.

Libragirl

I've been told you get the card on your 10 th Carnival cruise.

When you book your 10th Carnival cruise, you will be considered "Platinum" status. On my tenth, I rec'd the following:

Personalized Stationery
Special stationery personalized with the guests’ name will be delivered to the stateroom prior to embarkation.

Canapes (Note: For cruises 5 days or longer only)
Canapes will be delivered to the stateroom one evening via room service.

Petit Fours
Petit Fours will be delivered to the stateroom one evening via room service.

Carnival Logo Item
A special Carnival logo item (per Platinum Guest) will be delivered to the stateroom.

Complimentary $20 Entry Fee to Blackjack Tournament
The Platinum Guest (18 years or older) will contact the Casino Cashier Cage for his/her complimentary ticket.

Complimentary Wash and Fold Laundry Service
Complimentary unlimited wash and fold laundry service.

Guaranteed Dining Assignments

Guests may change their assigned dining time.
Note: This is for the Platinum guest and immediate family, maximum of two staterooms.

Guaranteed Supper Club Reservations
Guests may get confirmed reservations for the Supper Club.

Priority Spa Carnival Reservations and Complimentary Treatment Upgrade
Guests will be encouraged to book early to be assured of their requested appointment selection.

Priority Tender Boarding
In ports where the ship will tender, guests not on a shore excursion will proceed to the Concierge Desk and be escorted to the appropriate gangway for the next available tender.

Priority Debarkation
Guests will receive a debarkation letter offering a choice of how they would prefer to disembark the ship. They will be given the choice of Self Assist (where offered) or regular debarkation; for regular debarkation, the guest will receive Carnival Concierge Club Luggage tags.

I've read the perks that Princess has and they seem to be about the best around..... checked out Celebrity's perks and wasn't impressed.
