This will be my 3rd carnival cruise. Just a short one for 3 nights. I was wondering, on my 2nd cruise with carnival on the Imagination they had a past guest cocktail party. That was a 5 night cruise. This being a 3 night one will they have that??

No, past guest parties are for 5 day or longer cruises only.

does it matter how many cruises you have been on and does every ship have this? how do you prove that you were on a cruise before? I have been on a cruise before but my husband has not, can he come to the party?

Yes, it is a consideration as to how many past cruises you have been on. Some other rewards are added (especially on RCI). Yes, your husband can attend. Sometimes the invitations are not even taken or looked at. Have fun!!

If you cruise just once with Canival you will be assigned a past guest number. You can get this number by looking at the lable of your Currents magazine or by calling Carnival. The Currrents contains some coupons for discounts on some select cruises. The only other benifit is the past guest party. If you are a past guest and have checked the box on your docs (your Ta should have asked your for past guest number) you will receive an invitation in your room for the party. You must prersent your invitation in order to get into the party. They will hav free drinks and canapes, the CD will give a talk and you will be introduced to the Captain. There are no added benifits or considerations for the number of cruises you have been on.

jedgar,

Someone mentioned getting a little Carnival pin at one of the past guest parties. Do you know anything about this?

Have been on 10 Carnival cruises and never received a pin at the past guest party. We got a pin once on the Fascination in our cabin in early 2001 and haven't gotten anything on subsequent cruises.

They do have a little film now on the history of Carnival and showing all their ships, even the ones that aren't with the company any more. That was something that was new on our last cruise at the past guest party. Otherwise it is free selected drinks for about an hour.

Never heard of the pins either but that doesn't mean it hasn't happened on select sailings.

Carnival has now started giving out pins for each cruise you go on. Wife and I went on the Glory and each received one. Each has name of ship on it. Carnival encourages you to wear it. I have heard that Carnival has told its staff to look for guests wearing lots of pins from various ships and to pay attention to these guests. Wish we could get them retroactive. I would love to have a pin for each Carnival Cruise we have taken.

That would be a good thing for us to order...hope Carnival decides to either offer them online through gifts and services or in the gift shops onboard.

I got a pin on the Imagination in 2000, but sailed again in 2001 on the Fantasy and did not get a pin.
