We would do well with that but obviously Royal don't think it would work or they would introduce it.

1 extra point for spending over $1000 per week during your cruise would be interesting.

The sheer number of Diamond and higher loyalty shows they have it right with C&A to get points its only the points per tier has overwhelmed them as 80 points to make Diamond has shown.

 

Royal experimented with that once. $350 earned 1 point, I think

So, extra points for extra spending. Sounds good. I’d also like to see extra points for entertaining people with your impromptu band. 

With the number of hours that I have played up in the Crown card room I would be Pinnacle by now.

Excellent points.

Some Suite customers might only cruise once in a lifetime or even given to them as a special gift.

We are a captive audience on board and the more we cruise the more we spend on board.

 

Most Suite Guest we know are not one and done. I’d appreciate if you would gift us a Star Class Suite. 😇

If the description of extras is true, why not award loyalty points by dollars spent onboard?  
 

I’ve been in favor of points by $ for some time. What’s there to be afraid of.

Why not let people just by points? You send RCI a credit card number, tbey add some points to your account. You never have to leave the comfort of your home and RCI need not provide any service. It's a win-win all the way around.🙂😇

Those is suites should get 3 drinks loaded on their cards😇

Suite guests have the DP and unlimited Speciality restaurant access.

D+ and Pinnacles have the new improved Loyalty Lounge which replaces the Concierge/Suite Lounge. 

Diamonds continue with 3 drink vouchers which roll over if any unused any day to a maximum of 21 per week.💓👜

Towards loyalty, or just to round up to a new reward. Delta lets you buy miles as well, but they don't count as qualification miles

Virgin let you buy reward miles.

These miles can go towards free flights or upgrades or you can part pay for flights or upgraded seats with these miles.

British Airways had air miles which are now avios points you can buy or earn at participating retailers to use against paying for flights.

UK Tesco supermarket rewards could be used for money off RCL cruises.

oh lord... the cruise lines’ systems might not be perfect, but please let us not copy airline systems. You have miles that count for this but not for that, miles that expire and those that don’t, status levels that require points (but only certain points) plus number of flights (but only certain flights count) with multipliers that nobody understands. And let’s not get started on how flight on partner airlines do (or don’t) count.

Only Star class suites get those perks.

Only star class suites have the DP and unlimited specialty dining and that is just on ships that have the  suite program.

So, they don't work like C&A points

It looks like Polly is suggesting a new future for CL/SL and how it could affect Suite passengers in future if only Loyalty Lounges were available.

And lets not forget "Crossed Eyed Marry". Oops I got off subject. :classic_rolleyes: Looking forward to when cruising starts back up. Didn't you say you liked the DL location on the Rhapsody? 

 

Yes, we did.  Since we (as D+) were kicked out of the CL on that ship (quite recently before we boarded)...they expanded using the "Shall we Dance" lounge on deck six all along the back windows as overflow to tiny little DL in the corner.  Lots of seating, big table of munchies, great bar service.    

 

The CL then was so empty and lifeless...(limited suites on the little Vision class ship) and with only 20 or so Pinnies...that the Pinnies did not want to be in the CL either. They came down to hang with the rest of us in the DL.  We split our time from our own balcony for wine, and some time in the DL.  Did not miss the CL at all.

Exactly...more time spent on board...more opportunities for money spent on board.  😉 

 

Now...if we can just GET on board at some point...would love to use some of that retirement money!!  😮

I remember on Splendour as you walked from Schooner bar the DL was on the left and the CL was on the right side of a decent sized  lounge which was hardly used and the drinks were brought into the DL from the lounge bar.
