Not a Happy Camper on this at all. We have spent a great deal of Money ONLY sailing with RCL. Now going on cruise # 46 Sept 01 on the Allure, and we are booked and paid for sailing Adventure for 13 days from Canada in October. If RCL wants to cut back like this, There will be no reason to ONLY sail with them any longer. There are so many other cruise lines out there that are building new ships with different itineraries that we have passed on just to stay loyal to RCL. If they want to cut back, then get RID of the loyalty program. It is not worth it anymore. The DL was always the crown jewel that set RCL apart from everyone else and made us sail ONLY with them. Just to say goodbye to so many loyal cruisers that really enjoyed this perk of open bar in the DL makes no sense.
I remember many years ago that RCL was going to separate the Diamonds and the D+ /Pinnacles. Hopefully this backfires and maybe a campaign needs to start with e-mails to corporate to show our dissatisfaction?
