Need advice from experts here. I only been on genting dream once and world dream once. Seldom gamble so not familiar with the points and redemption system.

My mother has about 114 tp and 25k pp. So 60 tp will be deducted by end june for gold tier for coming jul to dec? What happens if she uses say 110 tp for redeeming stuff before june? 2nd half of the year she downgrade to classic?

Her 25k pp is neither here nor there. If she doesn't hit 30k by end june before they all expire,what should she use it for besides normal comp cabins for 2nd half of the year?
So i assume your mum is already gold and she have 114TP as of today. Quite the same as me.

So after june we will renew gold tier and all will be reset to zero and will start to aim to renew gold again.. TP got no monetary value nor redeem it is only use for status or TP promos onboard this TP promos is on that cruise only and currently is damm lousy

PPs have monetary value. It can be use to offset charges onboard, redeem e-credit and redeem cabins. PP has expiry date so please check carefully. So ask your mum go another time and hit 30K PP then can redeem a 2N suite. My best advice. if 45K even better then can redeem 3N suite.

TP cannot be used for spending, only PP can be used for spending. PP can be used to pay for your gratuity, taxes, or upgrade your cabin to balcony/suite.

Make sure to utilise them before the expiry date.
Thanks. I logged into her account on rwas.com for her today. Seems her pp originally supposed to expire last june got extended to expire this june probably due to covid. I was thinking is it more worthwhile to ask her to offset port n gratuity charges or go redeem abalone etc
. Cos i also don't know how many pp can redeem what. She also doesn't pay attention to such things lol

Yes, she been maintaining gold for a few years. I remember reading an old post about balance tp after deducting 60 will carry over to next half year then start accumulating from there or something but anyway i told her IR won't serve gold card alcohol anymore so time being not much incentive to maintain gold status really

No it wont it will be reset to zero.

Basing on what you say Lets example you have 599TP and you take 60tp to renew and left 539TP? so you can just clock another 61 to get plat lol

It dont work this way .. All will reset to zero if you are same tier going for upgrade. Unless you are silver and upgrade to gold then you can carry forward you TP if is not expire yet.

The question will be is the member going onboard just to have the free alcohol drink? Yes it is a nice thing to have but not a main criteria.

If you already earned 599TP, you would have been upgraded to gold at the time when you reached 60TP. You only need 1TP more to get Platinum as long as you earn within the qualifying period.

TP will not be deducted but only reset after qualifying period.

It is more worth to pay for port charges and gratuity. Or do what winterdews suggested. Go another time and aim for 30k or 45k, so u can redeem palace suite for 2 nights and 3 nights respectively.

after the expiry date lol

The example is existing gold member which have 599tp and 30june21 expire and now is 01July onwards

So have to start all over again

This example wont happen in real life as members got so much TP will cheong until get plat lol

TP can only be obtained from gambling. PP probably can be from shopping too, not very sure though.

This is the furthest far back you can get on the Ship. Since all inclusive restaurants (Lido and 24hrs Snack Corner @ Deck 16, Dream Dining Lower @ Deck 7 and Dream Dining Upper @ Deck 8) are all at the Aft (Back) of the Ship, you walk lesser steps to get there as compared to those cabins in the Forward (Front) of the Ship. Imaging the ship is about 335m long, forward cabin would mean the need to walk more than 200m+ one way just to get to the inclusive restarants.

Worst case if you didn't manage to change before sailing day, you can always try to go to the Reception @ Deck 6 Mid Ship to change. Just find some reasons to do so like too far and too noisy blah blah blah.

You will have plenty of time to explore the whole ship so whichever cabin should not be any big issue unless the elders have problem to walk too long.
