Confused, moved up in C&A?

Recommended Posts

Ok something very, very strange just happened. I was Platinum and have been. Haven't been on any cruise, next cruise is Sept. 5 nights on Anthem and another booked on Oasis 7 nights in May 2020. Somehow I gained points and moved up in the C&A program. Anyone else find this strange or had this happen to them because I'm super confused but yes happy.

We haven't had that experience--gaining points.   We "lost" a point once, and when we complained, we were told it was the result of an audit (it went back to the loyalty program conversion).  There have been posts here about records being messed up, so it is also possible there was a mistake.  I hope it all works out in your favor, and enjoy your next cruise.

If your married or anyone else in your household that has signed up for RC’s C&A society and has been in enough cruises to obtain platinum status and has signed you and your wife/husband up for the C&A society and has the same last name as you, then you & your husband/wife is now whatever status that they have because that person has the higher C&A status of your household.

If anyone in your household has been on several RCI cruises and has earned enough C&A points to be platinum, then you will now have the same C&A status as your Husband/wife/other family member but will not have the same amount of points because you are starting from 0 points but will have the same C&A status as you wife/husband/other family member.

Thanks, my wife has been on every cruise I have. I guess the better way to say it is every cruise we have been on together.

Well I just hope they don't catch it before our cruise in Sept on Anthem.

By the way I'm not like freaking out at being Emerald because it's not much better than Platinum, I'm more happy about the points bring at 59 I'm only 21 from being Diamond. That's the awesome part because with Anthem Sept and Oasis in May I should be at 71. So very close to a cool goal of Diamond. That's the big one that is doable. The others are just nuts. No way I'm getting up there.

I know how you feel....after our cruises in August we will be 20 points away from Diamond so I've been plotting and planning....should we do one 10 night in a suite or two 5 nights in a suite.  I just don't want to drag it out any longer.

Maybe try back to back trips non-suite if you have the vacation time -- more bang for your buck that way!?

I tell you what, if you are in a giving mood,  I will GLADLY take any and all points that you would like to give up to get me up to the Diamond level!!!😁

That's true too....we could do two 10 night trips, but our vacation time would be a problem. We would have to space them out to make sure we had enough time.  Maybe we could work around holidays so it saves a day even.  I'm definitely on a mission to accomplish this in two trips or less! 

Thanks for the idea!

I haven't had a mistake enough to get me to the next level, but I do have a cruise on my C&A from 1970, I was born in 1971

That is exactly what happened to us after our cruise in April.  In cruise history, they put in two Baja Mexico cruises in 1970.  We were born in the 80s.  We jumped from Platinum to Emerald.  2 pts away from Diamond.  Possibly C&A intern was friends with drink pkg intern?
