Default Post Cards

I sent 2 postcards to family on my latest cruise. This was the first time I tried this and it cost me almost 3 dollars for 2 stamps. Pursuer said it would be mailed at the next port which would have been Calica and on 4-26-04. My sister and my mother have neither recieved them yet and my friend that was with me sent 2 also to family and they don't have them. Just wondering how long that takes.

Well im not sure exactly how long but from my experience when we were on the Inspiration in Feb.our post cards arrived 3 wks after we got home and I sent one out at all of our ports .Our poor children thought we forgot about them because we told them wed send post cards ..So expect 3 wks or longer hope that helps....

We've sent post cards from numerous ports and I don't think any of them got there before three weeks.... so like Shelly said....it will probably be at least three weeks - more than likely longer.

I also sent postcards from our last cruise and my family and children didn't get them for like 3 weeks as well. So I hope they do get them.

Thanks all for the replies. I wanted it to be a surprise because I never sent any post cards on other cruises, but after a week I had to ask them if they got them and now my dad is calling everyday saying "are you sure you put the right address?". . Well, guess we will just wait it out. Again thanks for replies.

I also sent post cards from the ship, 2nd day. I noticed the post mark on my friends card I sent her was dated the day the ship came back to port and it was also from the port of Tampa. I thought they would send it from the 1st port, but guess not. I like seing the different postage from places and next cruise I will send, even myself, one from the local ports of call. I bought a DVD of my snorkel trip in Grand Cayman and love the postage stamp when it was sent to me.

I had to send post card from Hell, Grand Cayman, I mean after all how many people can say that they have been to Hell and back? The postal services aboard are not the same as the US Postal Service. I got home before my post cards reached people in the states.

We sent postcards from Nassau (for less than $1) and it arrived in about a week.

I do a little "work around" with my kids, and had another gal from this board (bless her heart) pick me up a couple postcards on her trip ( a few weeks before mine) , and then mailed them to me when she got home. I then wrote them out here (very generically--having a great time, love you, etc) and mailed them a day before we left and the day we left, so at least they got mail while we were gone. My kids are 5 and 9 and I've done this three years in a row now and they've never questioned the postmark! I also buy a bunch of cheap Wal-Mart cards, write messages inside, and have people mail them to my home while we're gone so the kids get mail every day and know how much we love them!
