1. Tiers will not change. Still the same # of cruises to reach the various levels.
2. Diamond + will receive additional benefits. She did not say anything about Diamond losing anything, just that D+ would receive more/better benefits to better differentiate them from Diamond
3. Biggie for me - will be able to combine certain benefits again. Balcony discounts will be combinable with the savings certs (if avail). In addition, you will be able to combine EITHER the OBC for booking onboard OR the shareholder OBC. So now at least we will be able to combine up to 3 benefits again. I thought that was totally a move in the right direction.
LA said everything will be posted to the site tomorrow, and unlike the last annoucement, she said this one was concise and very understandable. Guess we will see once it is posted tomorrow.
That is what I found out this morning while waiting to depart and talking to Rene the LA.
