Just a poll of sorts. My wife and I are Gold CC members with 6 cruises under our belts. We have 2 B2B in January that will put us at 8 total. The catch is, we will have 49 nights on-board at that point (we currently have 42). My question is, how many people attain Platinum by doing 10 3-night cruises instead of 10 longer cruises? We had table mates on our last cruise that were Platinum because they did a bunch of 3 night cruises just to stack the deck toward status. Hmm, we've sailed 42 nights and are only just now Gold and they've sailed 30 and are enjoying the Platinum perks. Airlines reward loyalty by either miles flown or segments flown (Delta for instance). So, those who don't do long-haul flights but fly multiple segments still get status. As far as DCL, those of us who have spent many more nights on the ships than some Platinums won't see that status for a while. In theory, you could sail 110 days in a Cat T or something and only just make platinum (10 11-night Med cruises for instance) vs the person who sails 10 3-nighters in an Inside State Room and gets the perks. They spend much less money and much less time on-board but get the status. What gives? How many people have Platinum status based mostly (if not totally) on 3-night cruises?
