Carnival Platinum Club
I am on this level. The best perk is free laundry. We took a Transatlantic and the perk came in handy several times.
I am Platinum on Carnival , Platinum on Princess , 4 stars on HAL,
Diamond on RCCL......Royal Caribbean has the best program
Princess gives me some free internet , RCCL gives me a lot of free drinks , HAL gives me not to much just a tile and 50% off the mini bar
On HAL I am a 2 star Mariner. That gets me a very nice perk of being able to eat in the MDR on Embarkation Day. I like this perk bec. the buffets are always chaotic on the first day. Another less valuable perk is a photo of the ship but I'd love that for my photo book. I al,so get 10 percent off logo items.
Halfway through my next cruise, I will reach 3 Star Mariner (75 cruise days) on HAL. This will be a nice perk because I will get a 25 percent discount on a specialty restaurant surcharge. My birthday falls right around that date so I will definitely use that perk. Usually you don't move up a level during a cruise on HAL but bec. this is a Grand Journey, HAL makes an exception as they should, I think.
The best benefit for me when I reach 4-star Mariner (200 cruise days) is free laundry. Priority tender is another good perk as is a 50 percent discount on specialty restaurant surcharges & wine packages.
What is good on HAL is that onboard purchases can count as Bonus Cruise Days & they incl. shore excursions and wine orders purchased pre-cruise. There are some restrictions. Each $300 purchase counts as one bonus day. I should be able to rack up bonus days like crazy since I booked all my shore excursions thru HAL on this long cruise.
I unfortunately have have a long way to go from 75 cruise days to get to 200 cruise days. Yes, you don't have to tell me, that it is 125 more cruise days. Laugh, laugh.
I am a 4 star , I have a long ways to go to next level
