What level are you in the new Castaway Club?

Everyone seems to be talking about the large numbers of Platinum and Gold members and how that is going to affect online bookings of shore excursions and Palo. Since members of the DISboards are more likely to be loyal Disney fans and repeat cruisers, it might not be an accurate representation of all Castaway Club members. Still, it could be interesting . . .

Silver
Begins after your 1st completed cruise.

Gold
Begins after your 5th completed cruise.

Platinum
Begins after your 10th completed cruise.

I was thinking of posting this same poll earlier today. So thank you for doing it. I too think that these boards would skew to higher gold and platinum levels than the general public. So I'll be interested in knowing your results.

Wondering the same. Thanks for posting.

I am a little concerned how it will work out with concierge competing with platinum for 120 day Palo/shorex, etc.

However, I do wonder if everyone will be truthful as to their level when they vote?

I agree, I am silver and I voted as such. I see no reason to be deceptive.

What would they gain by lying in an anonymous poll?

I've only been on one disney cruise.....15 nights
My second cruise is 14 nights, I like the longer cruises, so with 29 nights I will still be silver.

We're silver, with 3 down, and 1 in 10/10.


What level do you suppose that makes Inkkognito?

Where do you find the level break down? I must start reading the DCL board more often. We've sailed 26 days would that make us silver?

Levels are based on number of completed cruises, not days. People have argued that longer cruises should count for more, but that's not the way DCL set it up.
