Default Becoming a diamond member

Can anyone tell me how and what it takes to become a diamond member
I have only been on one other cruise and can't wait to leave for my second.
It's just soooo darn long of a wait :evil:

When you have the equivalent of 10 cruise credits , you are Diamond. FYI, as you cruise in Grand Suite and above,these count as 2 credits.

Even sailing in JS gives an extra credit and so do cruises longer than 12 nights. So it may not be a long wait. Just start booking.

Just made D+ this year so hang in there. I admit that it seemed like it would take a long time when the wife and I took our honeymoon on the old "Viking Serenade," in '90. Now with addition of cruise credits, it went quite quickly. We love the longer itineraries and the category "JS" so that helped speed things along. Enjoy all the cruises that will get you there, Robbie

What I normally do is get a JS on a cruise 12 Nights or longer, I Currently have 65-70 Cruise Credits, and I have only gone on 41 Royal Cruises. My First Cruise credit was from back in 1970 on the Song of Norway, and it's been growing since!

For any Diamond Plus members, has anyone got any "special amenity" or a "behind closed doors" tour? I'm one cruise credit away from diamond plus and was curious what the extras I'll get be? For instance, has any diamond plus member got a tour of the bridge or invited to the captain's table for dinner, etc?

The "special amenity" on our only trip as "D+" was a choice of a free bottle off of their short list or the chocolate covered strawberries. No "behind the scenes" tour was offered and we had forgotten about it. 3 more trips with "RCI" in the next 6 months so we'll see what happens.

There is also the "possibility" of an upgradeif you call 14 days prior sailing so curious if any "D+" has received that perk?

I need a couple of more cruises before D+ but Diamond is cool too. My next two cruises are Sept. '07 and Apr. '08 both are JS. I'm getting there.

Over my many years of Cruising, I can say that the things you get offered as a D+ member are;

Bridger tour *You and 1-3 Other people you decide to take*
Galley Tour *You and 1-3 Other people you decide to take*
Capitan's Table, Only if you are one out of 5 D+ members if you just got D+, mostly its D+ Members with 60 Cruise credits up.
Other than that, there's really nothing else, I'm just annoyed they can't print plus on the key cards :evil:

Just take a magic marker and put the plus on your key cards. No Problem!

Well the Loyalty Ambassador does put a sticker on it that says Diamond Plus, but they were saying since 2004 that they were going to print Diamond Plus on it, so i'm still mad about that.

How are cruise credits earned? not one for one?

Okay, Here's the deal;

Every time you go on a 3-9 Night Cruise you get 1 Credit, on a 3-9 Night cruise in a JS and up you get 2 Cruise Credits.

Every time you go on a 10+ Night Cruise you get 2 Credits, on a 10+ Night cruise in and up you get 3 Cruise Credits

To the best of my recollection you get extra credit for cruises 12 nights or longer

I asked a living breathing person at RCCL and they said still 12+ nights. But we all know that one half of RCCL never knows what the other half is doing.
