I believe that many of us who are repeat cruisers are the opposite of what you describe.

No doubt not all repeat cruisers are bad. I know I'm not.

I also know a cruise line owes me nothing.

I think a lot of repeat cruisers overvalue themselves.

For example, I tend to doubt that they as are responsible for as many new cruisers as they think. In any event, I think Carnival came up with a perfectly reasonable way to handle that.

Weren't they paying a bounty for each new cruiser? Pay for performance.

We spend a goodly amount on our cruises and we have a great time.
