I'm really curious about how this is going to go too. Are all 9th years lifer now??
Yes, 9th year means lifer. You can tell by the prebooking info for the next cruise booking priority.
When we had our 9th year, they sent us an EM asking us what size we were. I wonder if they did it again? Do you thin we will get a trinket or just pre boarding?
The email or call is for the 8th year people getting the fleace. I would guess they had to call the people. I get the plaque this year as I'm one year behind you guys. I would guess you are getting a "trinket" of some sort. They would have to contact all of you before hand to let you know you can get on early.
