Can anyone tell me the current list of gold benefits? The website is very vague!

 

TIA!

Which gold are you talking about ? The gold coloured card or the card with gold printed on it ? One opens more than one door the other means you not sleeping on a deck chair and not much else 🤣

I didn't realize gold was the lowest level. It figures that we have 29 points. 

With another 671 points you will get a gold card .😇

There is also a solid gold colored card that I've seen used to get into the suite breakfast. I had a JS and no gold card, so I assume it's for full suites. .. now that's a nice card. 

 

Now I know a lot more about loyalty levels that I didnt know until covid made me stay home more.

 

Maybe it's for pinnacles.. all I know is i saw them going into a special breakfast room with gold cards. .. maybe one day ha. You and me both!

We had a gold card when we stayed in a grand suite (first cruise in 16 years) now hubby won’t cruise unless we get one!

Grand suites and above get gold sea pass cards.

Not that it matters, but, the different suite classes on Quantum and Oasis class get different colored cards.  Grand suite and above on the other ships get a gold card, and I believe the Pinnacles do as well.

With the double points it would only take 25 seven day cruises…… As long if they were in a suite!

The Gold status can be confusing in the beginning.

Years ago during our second cruise ever on the Explorer my wife and I were on the pool deck looking for a spot to sit.  We were near the Gold section which was the tiered decks area and there were only a couple of people there.  I said to my wife we’re Gold we can sit up here.  So we went up there grabbed 2 loungers and sat down.   A waiter came over and asked what we wanted.  I gave him my card and he brought us drinks no problem.  Maybe he just figured more tips.   But I kept seeing this one women glaring at giving us an evil eye.   I had no idea what she was glaring at us for but now I assume she had a real Gold card.   At some point after that we figured out there is an actual Gold card and that Gold status is not worth much.

It's vague because Gold basically gets nothing!.  But good news, you are getting closer to the good stuff.

It all depends on how much value you place on the various perks at various levels.

Starting with Diamond, you actually get free stuff that matters.  Free drinks, free picture, and a decent discount .  Things like welcome water, or soda, and cookies, aren't really free stuff, just nice to have in the room I guess.  Until you start getting free stuff, it doesn't matter.

Yeah Emerald mainly exists as a nice platitude on your way to Diamond. It's almost the same benefits as Platinum, just slightly bigger discounts loaded to the card and the beverage/snack on embarkation day.

That's the best story 🤣🤣🤣 The waiter knew exactly that you were no suppose to be there he thought the real gold card lady don't tip any better I stick it to her I'm not the Gold card police...I'm getting there drinks . AND you would be the point of discussion in the CL the rest of the cruise. " The Peasant's that got served in the Gold area." 😂👍👍

Seriously?  Is no one going to answer the OP's question?

 

Prior to the pandemic this was a typical Gold on board offer letter:

Based on what I've observed this has not changed in a significant way for the Gold level for restart ships.

Not exactly.

 

They have been on at least one cruise.  If they have only done one, they were not Gold on that first cruise, so did not get the letter.
