I didn't ask. I logged on and found they had me as blue!!! My phone number changed so they weren't giving me credit for my past cruises. Weird. Everything is cleared up now.

After Pams suggestion I had just posted on the Facebook site but thanks for letting us know
Any idea WHY?? It seems a strange extra tier to put in, you would've thought that they would have put in a super elite.

Default Princess adds new tier - Medallion

I just got off the phone with Princess. They added a new tier to their Captain's Circle:

1 - Blue

2 - Gold

3-4 Medallion

5-14 Platinum

15+ Elite

Not sure what this means. That's what the rep told me.

Strange that they would do that

So what does Medallion get me? I'll be taking my 5th Princess cruise this summer, and Gold doesn't really get me much, except an invite to a party with watered down cocktails. Wondering if I can expect anything more/less with this new category. Just checked my personalizer and I do show up as Medallion now, but when I look at the member benefits page, it's not listed yet.

Next year, Platinum!

That seems so odd to me. I would have thought if Princess was to add another tier, they would have split up the Platinum or added another tier after the Elite.

If you go to your booking summary on the cruise personalizer it's at the bottom of the page. Hope that helps

How odd! With their new "get-away" cruises I was expecting it to go by days (current grandfathered) or a new tier above elite for 20 or 25 plus. I don't see a purpose for 3-4?

I've been watching, at my current total of 17, hoping for no take-aways before my exotics next spring. I want laundry!

We're leaving on our fifth cruise in a few weeks and are looking forward to the free internet that comes with Platinum. Our prior four cruises totaled over 50 days. I just checked my personalizer and I'm still listed as Platinum -- thank goodness. Maybe the number of cruises has changed, not the number of days.

Guess I'm just skeptical & until I see a change on the Princess site I won't be convinced that it's not a computer glitch & a rep who may be wrong which wouldn't be the 1st time.

I guess it could be a preview of more changes in the levels but that's merely speculation.

I'm the same as you as I personally can't see a reason for doing it
I do keep giggling about an image of me wearing a gold medallion though

Princess may be in the process of updating all of the Captain Circle levels... It should be interesting to see what happens. I will make sure to stop by and speak with the Captain Circle host/hostess in two weeks. I will let you know what he/she says if no one has reported back before then.

Hi Frank!

Well that is weird. I have completed three cruises and show gold for my next cruise which I get two credits for. The cruises I have booked afterwards show Medallion. Unless, I'm under the old tier for my cruise in 6 days but the future cruises booked are under the new tier.

However, I will have 5 credits on completion of the Ruby cruise. So surely, my next cruise in September with Princess would be Plantium not Mediallion?? Unless that cause I haven't actually reached it yet because the Ruby cruise is not completed.

Sorry for the long winded thought process.

One thing I noticed while looking at my cruise personalizer today... not only am I now listed as Medallion, but my insurance now says Platinum. I had signed up for the basic insurance. Maybe the perk of upgraded insurance now comes at Medallion level? Hey, I'll take it!
