Do four days count toward platinum? I have never done one, but I am curious.

I was under the impression if you get on a cruise, it counts

As long as you cruise on the same line it counts the length means nothing

A cruise is a cruise as long as that is the way Carnival counts it. I have heard some people complain that they should could days, but that's not the way it is set up. It's like Southwest Airlines who count flight segments not miles for their frequent flier program.

Just completed 49 day cruise on the Splendor and only get credit for three cruises. Figure that one out.Could have done three day cruises for the same credit.

I think it should be a graduated program based on legnth. One through 9/10 days should count as one. From there it should count as one for every 7 days. It makes sense to reward those that can go on extended cruises for the extra time and expense. Cruise lines do not see it that way, much preferring to pay out as few free cruises as possible.

Free cruises? Have ever heard of that. Would love to get to that level of "perks".

Certainly I would think that the three-leg repositioning of the Splendor would count for more. A 49 day cruise is equivalent to SEVEN normal seven day cruises!!!!!!

I would like to see it changed to #of days, alas, it isn't going to happen unless more people say something. much like Seamiles credit card, until enough non-US citizens complain that it isn't fair that only US residents can qualify it isn't going to happen for us. I could have had enough points for at least one seven day cruises as I use my credit card to book/pay for the cruise as well as my sail and sign.....I figure if it is 1 mile for each dollar spent I could have had in excess of 40000 points according to their rules (double points for using it to book/pay and S&S). I do hope they get a Canadian bank to back it so I can onboard with it!!

Okay, now you knew I would have to say the response. We can't help it, it just comes out.

I am thinking about the Conquest cruise you have lined up. If Okies are allowed on board....

colorcrazie, if they haven't changed it lately Cristal Cruises "give away" a free cruise after 30 cruises. After 100 cruises you get a free 11-day cruise in a Crystal Penthouse (their most expensive cabin).

Personally, I think everyone should sail each of the major cruise lines at least once and choose the one or two that they like the best and concentrate their cruises mainly on those lines. This strategy maximizes rewards while still allowing flexibility. Plus, you can't really know for sure you will like a line until you have been on that line.

For me it's very easy to choose among the major cruise lines. Some people say that they don't like NCL because there are no dancing and singing waitresses there and for me that's reason enough to choose NCL!

NCLs Freestyle Dining is also outstanding, mytime dining or whatever the other cruiselines call it is far from the same. Which cruiseline besides NCL has up to 11 restaurants to choose from?

For me, I would be quicker to judge on how cute the waitress is instead of how well they shake their bon-bon(to quote Ricky Martin). Of course doing both well works well for me, but then I am single so I am allowed. Couples would obviously have a different perspective. Regardless who your server is, they should absolutely provide excellent service.

My opinion is that a waitress shall serve food or drinks, not sing or dance!

There are plenty of waitresses that act, sing, and dance. Those are called actors. You find them in their native habitats of New York City and Los Angeles. Lol.
