Ruby Captain's Circle Designation?


Recommended Posts

How long has that been around? When did it come into practice? From what I read, it doesn't seem to give you very much, but it seems like a nice addition.


A few months ago (it was originally called Medallion). As a US person, if you buy Princess Insurance you get it upgraded to the next level free. You also get 10% off the Reflections DVD and thats about it.


There is also no 'welcome back' cocktail party, that starts at Gold.

They divided Gold into two categories. Gold is now for passengers who have completed 1 or 2 cruises on Princess and less than 30 days. The new category, Ruby, is for passengers who have completed either at least 3 cruises or 30 days on Princess and who have not completed 5 cruises or 50 days.


All the other categories are unchanged

My wife and I booked last month's Sapphire Princess Inside Passage Southbound as Golds (4 cruises completed) in Spring, 2012.


As the embarkation date approached, I noticed in Cruise Personalizer that we were listed as Medallion, and saw that we had Princess-paid upgraded insurance.


Aboard ship, our cabin's nametag was red in color. However we were issued gold cruise cards.


Checking princess.com while aboard, I saw that the designation Medallion had changed to Ruby. And then soon after the cruise, our fifth, I checked and saw we're now Platinum. :)
