You will be invited to the past cruisers party for free drinks and snacks.

Other than what Jim said, absolutely NOTHING!!!! Carnival is the worst of the main stream cruise lines with rewarding repeat passengers.

Gotta agree with Lisa on that one.

Frankly, Royal Caribbean beats 'em hands-down

I also agree with Lisa, I've been on 17 CCL cruises and everything I get I have to beg
for. I have also heard that they the worst for perks for past guests.

Harry, what all does Royal Caribbean do for their past guests (I haven't cruise with them before -- just with Carnival)?

Also, the past guest party is only on cruises 7 days or longer. Lori, RCCL has the past guest party also and they give you a coupon book in your cabin as a past guest. Its not bad but its not great. On RCCL you don' t start getting the good perks until you have completed 5 cruises.

On Princess and Celebrity you start getting perks like early embarkation and debarkation, special group programs, etc (along with other benefits) starting with your SECOND cruise on the line!

How do you get a "Past Guest Number". Is it on your sail and sign card, or do I have to contact Carnival guest services?

Cruiseguy: You are incorrect. Past guest party is held on all cruises 5 days or longer.

3 and 4 day cruises are the only ones that do not have a past guest party.

I thought the past-guest party on the Paradise was great - very nice appetizers (one had caviar and fois gras, others were fresh mozzarella cheese and tomaro bruschetta, one had some kinds of really good chicken in it), fancy pastries and all the drinks we wanted (champagne, blue margaritas, wine, whiskey sours). They also drew a card for a very fancy bottle of champagne that the captain awarded.

I didn't think it was bad, we had a good time. For what we got the cruise for, I was happy with that. If I paid so much more for a cruise on some of the more upscale lines, I would expect more as a past-guest.

workinmomof3....I paid less for some of my cruises on the more "upscale" lines than on my second Carnival cruise.......and we got a lot more than just a "nice" repeaters party. For what I pay on Carnival I expect a lot more than what I am getting as a repeat cruiser....which is one of the reasons I offer my hard earned money to other cruise lines who APPRECIATE my repeat business. Carnival takes it for granted......others do not!

I disagree...

The rates (if you shop intelligently) Carnival offers for the destinations I want to cruise to (I'm cruising again this month in a cabin BY MYSELF for under $400 total), Carnival doesn't need a past guest program.

I will tell you that I have it from a good source that past guest does come into play when upgrades are given (past guest vs. non - the past guest gets the better cabin)

My $.02
