A : As we phase into a more flexible environment onboard, we are working through the Suite and Concierge Lounge access for Pinnacle Club members. We will share more details in the days to come. In the meantime, you can continue to enjoy the nightly gatherings from 5 pm to 8 pm at the Diamond Lounge and the newly created Pinnacle Club Lounge. This dedicated space for Pinnacle Club members will operate through March 31, 2022.

 

So the Pin Bins are only temporary.

I’d be surprised if they allow Pinnacle back into the SL.  Just too many, too easy to achieve.  

I could see them doing something like double or triple Pinnacle allowed into the SL.  

Im sure they are getting an earful on the Pinnacle survey they just sent out but that doesn't change the math.

What changes have occurred to Quantum of the Seas in prep for its Alaska Cruise season in May 2022?

Good question, as I'm taking the family on it in June.  Might be a great topic by itself.

Why doesn’t RCL award next their during a cruise? We were 1 point away from next level on our last Carnival cruise and were promoted at the start. We are 1 point away from upgrade on RCL transatlantic and I understand they don’t promote until next cruise.

 

To entice you to come back for another cruise

I will disagree that Pinnacle is easy to achieve, at least for us.  We are Diamond Plus, 204 points.  We need 496 more points to achieve Pinnacle.  No way we will be ever able to do that.  We do not have the $$ to cruise that much even with double points for suites.  We would need ~36 (7) night cruises in a suite.

We're diamond. Just need 11 more cruises to get to D+ so maybe in 5 years we'll make it at the rate we do cruises.  Less if we do a Jr. suite once in awhile.  We do have two cruises coming up. One in early Dec, one next Feb.

The issue is we've been all over the east, west and southern Caribbean multiple times so that means Europe, the med, maybe Alaska. We spent a month in Alaska camping a couple years ago we've never cruised there.

that would put me at 92 or a dirt nap.

 

We had an underwhelming experience on the Big Red Boat in 1999. But after a TA three years ago, we're enjoying 4 weeks of cruising annually--B2B's in the Fall and Winter.

You forgot Hawaii. We have done about the same thing as you. So next is Hawaii. Then hopefully off to Europe or Mediterranean .

Can you believe there are weirdos getting close to D+ with nothing but East/West Caribbean and Bahamas cruises (aside from one 7-nigher in Alaska)? Some people!

P.S. If my attempt at humor failed, see my signature. We enjoy our ship routine, a few select excursions even if we've done them before, and could probably go to Cococay once a week if it were feasible. Different strokes...

Thats the only thing that makes the 3 night and 4 night Florida itineraries appealing to me. B2B them and get 2 stops at Coco Cay in a weeks time 🥰 

Exactly what we did in July. Wanted to do it again next month but the weekend prices were lousy compared to the deals you could get for the 4-nighers during the Going, Going, Gone sales. Couldn't bring myself to pay twice as much for another 3 nights. If our schedule allowed, we'd have done a few more 4-nighters this fall.

We will be exactly 7 points short as of now after our June 2023 Wonder cruise. Tried to get another 7 nights in prior to that but doesn't seem like we can.

Recently received my 1st ever block (Harmony). It's a lovely paperweight/dust collect. 🙂
