Be aware that it comes when you are assigned a past guest number (that number will be on the magazine label) and Carnival is woefully behind on assigning these numbers.
I sailed in December and STILL hadn't received my past guest number in July. I only received it because my TA called and talked to a supervisor in past guest relations at Carnival.
So don't be worried if you *don't* receive one after sailing - you'll get it eventually.

We received the Summer Currents edition a couple months ago, so I'm not expecting the Fall/Winter edition until sometime in the Sept/Oct timeframe, I guess.
Does anyone know why they don't issue past guest numbers to all the past guests? We sailed last year, my husband and I, and they only issued one for my husband. The booking was in his name, so I was thinking maybe that was why. We just returned from the Elation 8-8-04 with our children, so I'm wondering if they will issue all of us a past guest number.
