I believe it is a combination of the economy and the over abuse of passengers to get a free bon voyage gift. It was stopped a month or two ago. I sent a letter, but I was not in it for a freebie, I wanted to let them know about how well run the ship was and how much fun it was, even though we we routed West because of Ike.
The era of free stuff for writing a letter, good or bad, is gone! We will all have to get used to it!
