This sounds great, but I'm sure there's a significant cost. I have no problem with this program, since it actually doesn't deprive other passengers.
The other caveat is that the appearance of a reemerging 1st class, 2nd Class, and Steerage classification to Princess Cruises, or at least there's an
unspoken undertone to all of these pay to play privilege levels.

It sure does when they take space away from the other passengers & sell it to paying customers.

The same argument could be made for the 'Elite lounge', pay to dine speciality restaurants, and Captains Circle cocktail gathering, or 'Spellbound' on the Sun Princess. All of these are somewhat throttled in regard to availability, but they don't deprive passengers of anything really.

It sure does and it's more apparent on the Sun Princess than ever before. They keep narrowing down the space for those lower class people with every ship build.
Being Elite these days doesn't mean that much any more.
It all boils down to $$$.
