Default World's Leading Cruise Lines

Carnival is the head of a corporation called World Leading Cruise Lines. The website claims that past guests can use VIP perks on any of the cruiselines. Has anyone been able to use a Princess cruise as a past cruise for Carnival?

I thought that you only get "past guest" invite to the past guest party etc....but does it doesn't count toward your 10 Carvinal cruises required for Platinum status...?
I could be wrong, it would be a wonderful thing if all of their cruiselines counted towards the quest for platinum.

That's what I am searching for Wakedreams. I had been told in the past, by Carnival PVP's, that my Princess cruise doesn't apply towards the Carnival policy but, in reverse, my Carnival trips can apply towards any Princess ones.

So, my Carnival ledger would read 5 trips only.

My Princess ledger would read 6 trips while I have only actually used Princess once.

Go figure...

it would be wonderful if they would change that policy. I am hoping to try NCL and Princess, but I want to reach Platinum status first.

If I were the head of marketing for Carnival Corporation, I would use the synergy of merging the loyalty programs of the various cruise lines in a way that would reward revenue spending patterns instead of the number of cruises on any particular line.

I would issue my reward level cards based upon total dollars spent (i.e bronze card -$10,000 silver -$25000 gold -$50,000) and the rewards could be automatic cabin upgrades, onboard ammenities etc and would not have an expiration date. I would give double and triple credits for onboard revenue spent (using the sign and sale card as the measurement tool).

Airlines for years have been trying to figure out a system that rewards how much you pay for a ticket instead of how many tickets you buy and have not been successful.

With the number of cruise line members in the Carnival Corporation, I think it would work
