I am almost a Diamond Member, 9 cruise credits. I think it would be nice to have free internet, free laundry and all the other benefits. If you think about it, cruisers with 3+ cruises have spent a good bit of money with Royal Caribbean International. I think that the corwn and Anchor needs to give more benefits to more loyal people....like all of you guys. To be honest, you think the benefits you have are great, but in realty, the coupon book doesn;t have the great of value, and you really don't get anything meaningful as a benefit........Free room upgrades, personalized amenities, private onboard experiences.....etc.
Thanks, Roland. Karen was our CD and Capt. Thorolvsen was Ship's Master when we sailed on the Jewel last October. He is an official "Royal Jewel" complete with pin.
I believe Peter has been CD on one of our cruises as well.
San and Marcia - It's tough being a leader instead of a follower, especially when some of you refuse to follow my lead, and it is lonely at the top.
Marcia, since San won't let you eat at his table you can dine at mine the next time we cruise together.
Roland, if the "kids" are going to fight over who sits with whom, I would banish them to their staterooms and make them get room service.
I'll do my best to be more like you Bill....when I grow up, I want to be just like you....sophisticated, intelligent, born leader and all around great guy.....with patience on your part, I think I can do it. Help me out here.
Why would I not like Roland's post, Marcia? .....I really need all the help I can get....as you all know.
OK, we need more creative suggestions for Crown and Anchor....maybe there are some things that can be traded off.....for instance the Ben and Jerrys coupon. I'd gladly forfeit the gambling coupons for internet time....but I somehow think that RCCL wants me in the Casino...can't imagine why.
You know why, that is one of the places they make big bucks. From the people who really believe they are gonna pay off their cruise with their winnings. Ha.....
On Members cruises, one of the perks that was given to Diamond Members was a shore excursion (1/2 day), the one we were on (Norweigen Fjords), they took them to Malahide Castle near Dublin. They could do that for Diamond and maybe an all day one for Diamond Plus.
Hey San, I just passed you up, I'm now a Baker Trainee.
