Default post cards

I'm going to Cozumel & Costa Maya, I'm sure I won't have a problem finding a post card but can I mail it from those ports? What about stamps?

You can get stamps from the pursers office no problem. There are postcards in the gift shop on board or you can get them on shore. There's a postal drop box right across from the pursers desk which is really nice. They mail from the next port.

Dina is correct, for the most part. IF you purchase a MX stamp from the purser's desk and mail your cards from the ship, it won't be mailed until they get to another MX port. However, if there's no other MX port before the cruise ends, the cards won't be mailed until the next time they go to MX. (One reason why it may take cards weeks to get to the recipient.)

The purser's desk sells US and stamps from various ports. If using US stamps, the cards will be mailed from your homeport when the ship returns there.

You can get postcards of your ship at no charge from the purser's desk. And yes, you can get cards all over MX, and mail from there. (A word of caution - some stores that sell cards/stamps never seem to get the cards to their post office.) Locate the post office and mail them yourself.

Thank you BlueChef. I never thought about that part. I found mailboxes at every terminal we stopped at so I would drop my postcards there but I did send one from the ship mailbox since I couldn't resist the free postcard at the pursers desk with the Carnival logo on it.

Yes, I always get a couple of those post cards of the ship to use in my scrapbook of that cruise.
