Almost forgot to inform you guys and gals, but we DID receive our coveted Carnival "Pins" aboard the "Liberty' last week. I looked in the gift shop as well, to see if they were available there, and they did indeed have pins, but they were a bit larger, and frankly, IMO not as nice, and "classy" as the honest to goodness "Carnival Platinum Pins". They were also $4.95 each!
So glad Carnival elected not to get rid of the pins, as they make excellent keepsakes, and reminders of what GREAT cruises we enjoy aboard Carnival. THANKS CARNIVAL!
