I am cruising this weekend,my dh will not be going. I wanted to send him a postcard from every place we docked. I know there is a mailbox on board the ship. At least I think I remember it being one on the ship
My question is will the postcards get to him before i do? We are doing a seven day to San juan,St.thomas,Bahamas and Grand turk.
The ones dropped into the mailbox aboard the ship don't get mailed/postmarked until you're back in home port. At least they didn't for our first 2 cruises. Sooo, we like to purchase stamps and mail the cards ourselves while we're ashore. CAUTION: a block of 6 POSTCARD stamps in St. Maarten cost me 10 bucks US. Enough to make me go.......well.......POSTAL!
When I was on Destiny, they made mail drops at every port. I mailed off postcards to my friends every day and got the correct stamps from each island at the pursers desk. My friends absolutely LOVED getting them post marked from each island. If you want, you can get the stamps and get everything done then drop them when your in port. That works just fine as well... Have a fantastic trip.
Life is too short to let the ship of your dreams sail without you.
