Default Viking Serenade what cruiseline??

Hi all we are thinking of bookng a Royal Caribbean cruise and I was wondering if my first cruise on Viking Serenade was on a Royal Caribbean ship or was it some other cruise line. I can't remember the cruise was in 1994. Even if it was a Royal Caribbean ship is that cruise to old to call me a past guest? Also I cruised Celebrity Infinity in 2006 since RCL owns both lines does that count as past guest? Thanks for your help.

The Viking Serenade was a marvelous old tub, a rebuilt ferry boat, and was indeed on Royal Caribbean. We cruised her in 1995.

When we joined the RCI past passenger program, we got credit for all our cruises all the way back to Song of Norway in 1972! We actually had the tickets in our scrapbook for that one, but they took our word for some of the others!

Even though Celebrity, Azamara and RCCL are all "owned" by the same company, you have to gain credits with each line separately.

I thought the Viking Serenade was an RCL cruise. My hubby and I were arguing about it. He should just keep in mind that I'm always right. Jennc thanks for the information I thought that might be the case, but it was worth a shot.

I do have a picture of us on the ship so I'm good there. My cat Elwood scratched out my hubby's face, but it still mostly looks like him. My cat and my hubby have issues.

Yes, but after you have sailed 5 times on one of those lines, then you get the same status on the other lines.

I reached Elite Captain's Club on Celebrity, so now I am a Diamond member on Royal's Crown and Anchor.

Wow -- if that is the way it works, it is something new.

That is a good deal.

Now if Carnival Cruise Lines which also owns Princess and HAL would give the same deal it would be great!
