Has Carnival also suspended, along with the funnel deck, the issuance of lapel pins on their ships? The wife and I just returned from the Fantasy and no pins were left in the cabin with the invite to the Captain's dinner. Wow. If this is true, Carnival must be flexing its muscles and discontinuing some past freebies. It's not like they had very many of them to begin with.
I have gotten a pin on every cruise I have been on in the last couple of years. I just got off the 5-Day Inspiration on Thursday and received a Pin with my Past Guest Party Invite. Not sure why you would not have gotten one.
We have had it to be hit or miss on several cruises. I actually don't even think about it unless they show up.
COMPLETES THE FLEET
If it is Carnival and it floats....we have sailed it!
Hubby ... DIAMOND (every ship except the Carnivale)
Me ... DIAMOND (every ship starting with the Tropicale)
20 year old son ... DIAMOND (every ship starting with the Tropicale...he is the only DOUBLE Milestone under the age of 21)
24 year old son ... DIAMOND
We cruised on the Elation in Dec. 2006 on a 5 day to Cozumel and did not receive a pin. We were invited and attended the past guest party but were not offered one. I was wondering if they had been discountinued.
we've gotten pins on every cruise in 05-06 and the 3 in 07 so far. Our ships were: M/S Sensation, M/S Elation and Carnival Glory. In addition, they've left all kinds of other freebies in our cabin like keychains, t-shirts, wine, fruit, chocolate covered strawberries, and all kinds of other kind gestures. So i cant complain.
