Default past carnival guest

I heard that they throw a party for past carnival guests. Has anyone been invited to one of these and what are they like? Do they throw in free booze at these parties?

Yeah, It's kind of like the Captain's "Welcome Aboard" party, except only past guests are there. Yes they throw the booze at you for free, and too regular.

Does anyone know if you are traveling with another couple who is not a past guest, if they will be invited to go along too? This will be our third Carnival cruise, but we are going with another couple (first cruise for them) booked in separate rooms. The TA knows we are together, I wonder if they link the booking somehow.

When we took a cruise with our son, since my husband and I had been on a Carnival cruise prior, we were invited to the past guest party - not my son. Needless to say, we didn't go.

If you havent already done so Iwould suggest having your friends mark "yes" in their docs and or fun pass when asked if they have cruised with Carnival before,Ithink thats how they send out the invites. good luck,it has worked for us!

We traveled with my husband's daughter, who is not a past guest, we just called the purser's desk and asked if she could attend, and they said of course. I don't know if they'd allow another couple to go, since they cna technically amuse themselves for the hour or so that you are gone, but I agree they should mark the past guest box on their cruise docs.

I thought it was a decent gathering, the appetizers were very good (on the Paradise), and the drinks were very free-flowing.

I;ve heard the past-guest parties on the bigger ships aren't as good, but I've not experienced one yet.

We travelled on the Pride back in Oct and we had a few single ppl with us that had not cruised before. When we checked in at embarkation we asked the person at the desk ( if our friend could be added on) that checked us in and they added one of them on. The other person had a clerk that asked her if she was traveling with past guest cruisers and because she said yes they added her on too. I agree, get there early, it gets packed.
Have a great cruise all!!

On our last cruise, we booked two rooms - one for us (past cruisers) and one for the kids (not past cruisers). We were all invited to the party. I don't know if it was because we were a family or not, but we enjoyed it. We will certainly ask about having them attend with us. Thanks for the input.
