Default Platinum Status

Is this a worthwhile goal?

I've read the benefits on Carnival's website but .... what is you experience?

The ones I enjoy the most are VIP check-in and priority debarkation.

Platinum status begins with your tenth cruise, regardless of length. As platinum you will receive priority boarding, priority disembarkation and priority tendering. You also receive some free wash and fold laundry service, a complimentary canape or fruit dish on embarkation and a free gift (currently an engraved picture frame)

I just achieved Platinum status and love it! I love breezing by all those in line and esp loved getting early debarkation. You are suppposed to have guaranteed dining time of your choice also. I didn't have to see if that worked on my cruise however. The stationary is only 3 or 4 pcs of silver/glossy paper and some envelopes. I liked having the wash and fold service also..although I was told to not send anything really important/nice. My clothes came back perfectly done that I sent.
