Default B2B Cruises, C&A upgrade in between question

If we do decide to go on our back to back cruises, the first will be our fifth and the second our sixth with RCI. With the second of the back to back, being our first under the Platinum level, can we get the balcony discount ahead of time or not...? .....do you know what mean? sorry if that's confusing, I was just curious

I understand exactly what you mean, and yes you can do this. I booked my first platinum cruise before I had completed my 5th cruise. Either you or your TA needs to talk to the C&A Society directly to do this. A normal reservations person cannot do it, but the C&A Society people can. I don't have the C&A number handy right now, but I can post it later if you need it. Have a couple of great cruises!

That's right, $50 for 5 or fewer nights, 6 - 9 is $100, and over 10 nights is $200.

actually i called RCI C&A desk and told them about the situation and asked if they would honor the upgrade. they said they could not because we have not yet completed the 5th cruise and they have to go by what the computer says.... sort of stinks!

We did our first and second cruise with RCL b2b on MOS.

We got the coupon books for our second week. I would presume

that you would get any of the perks.

Go to the Loyalty Ambassador when you board the first leg of your B2B. He or she will have to email Miami for permission to give you the Platinum onboard benefits. At least that's what we did and it worked. We made DP on the first leg and the LA had to get permission for us to have the DP amenity (bottle of wine) on the second leg. It's a pity they don't let them use a little bit of judgment onboard...
