......and the band is playing on the stage, lights are low...wait staff standing by with trays loaded with cocktails, i.e., martinis, manhattans, whiskey sours, blue margaritas, etc., and as soon as you sit down they are serving you drinks and wait staff with hot hors d'oeuvres are walking around to each table...meatballs, quiche, etc. You can ask for as many drinks and as much food as you can drink and eat in 45 minutes....the band is great and everyone is drawn to the dance floor. Usually, the Cruise Director introduces the Captain who says a few words of welcome to all the past guests. The same items are served at the Captain's Cocktail Pary....both events well worth attending, the drinks and food are great and absolutely free!!

The past guest party will be in one of the lounges. My boyfriend and I just got back from the Victory and the had it in 2 lounges. You will get an invitation, the day before, if I remember and it will tell you where and what time.

Casual. The party is not much to brag about. There are free drinks for about an hour and some snacks.

Regards,
Thomas

On the Ecstasy cruise 2 weeks ago we attended the party. You turn in your invitation at the door for a drawing near the end of the party. On the Elation the prize was a free cruise. On the Ecstasy the winner got a bottle of champagne.
There were several folks who "crashed" the party by coming in a back door off of the sports deck, bypassing the greeting and invite check at the main entrance.

Bee....you will receive a past guest invitation with just one cruise under your belt, it will be delivered to your stateroom. I definitely think it's worth attending, free booze and food, music and dancing, our group always meets 1/2 prior to dining for a drink in one of the bars so why not go to the past guest party and drink for free.

We have always received a past guest cocktail party invitation after our first cruise and if you're traveling with someone that has never cruised before, they will also be invited.

That is truly odd , 8 Carnival Cruises and no past guest invite, are you using your Carnvial Past Guest number on all your reservations and booking under the same name? Do you receive your Currents magazines too?

I have sailed with Carnival many times and was disappointed when i did not receive my invite on my cruise last month. I also am noticing a change in the service we have received from the cabin stewards , since the tips are now included on the sail and sign card.

I also did not receive an invitation for the party last June on the Legend and it was our fourth carnival cruise , I went to the purser's desk, and inquired and they gave me a note staing I can go. This year I am going again in June. We'll see!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Also our room steward was the worse ever, but I never complained he was an oldder guy just trying to make a living, I still had a great time.It was kind of funny I booked a cat 11 for the first time ever and thought I would have gotten a little better sevice but carnival is right everyone gets treeted the same no matter what stateroom you have.

The cruise has to be so many days long to have a past guest party I forget how many because we usually go for 7-8 days.

Don't forget the "meet and greet" at the door, sometimes, the captain, but certainly the Cruise Director and his assistants, and other officers etc. There is usually a little Carnival video presentation where you get to cheer for each Carnival ship you have been on before! have fun!
BTW, recent trip, my son on his 4th Carnival cruise, did not get an invitation along with ours, but a quick visit to the Purser's office put that straight.
