G'Morning! Long time, no see! GREAT to hear from you.
To answer your query,,,YES, ordinarily you will be given "Platinum" privileges for your whole cruise. Take a look at your boarding pass, and see if it gives you "Priority" status. If so, no problem, but if not, you could call Carnival and see if they'll do anything. In any case, you can hit the Guest Services desk once aboard, and ask them to issue your "Platinum" card. I'd bet you will be granted the platinum status.
Once again, great to see you, and wish I was cruising with you once again.

You should be granted you're platinum status...but as Sky mentioned look at your boarding pass to make sure. Carnival is very good about bumping people up to next level if they are going to make it while on the cruise. Happy sailing!

Not guaranteed, but it would be rare if you don't start the cruise form day 1 at the higher level.

"Notwithstanding the foregoing, in the event a Member books a Cruise in which such Member will attain the necessary VIFP Points to reach a new Level during or by the end of such Cruise (a “Crossover Cruise”), CCL may, in its sole discretion, offer such Member the Benefits offered to Members of the higher Level during the Crossover Cruise."


As others posted, check your cruise documents.

Default Thanks for the info

Thank you for the answer concerning status. We envy you folks that have been there and done that
I had the same question although my wife and I are just reaching gold two days into our next cruise. Carnival guest services assured us that we will receive our gold card and status when we board our next cruise of 3 or more days.
Thank you for your service to all of our military personnel and veterans.
