Default I have the same problem as metioned below

My husband and I have cruised Carnival 3 times in the past and just booked our 4th cruise. When I called Carnival with some questions, I asked how many past cruises they had us down for. She saw the 2 previous cruises we took 4 years ago, but they have no record of our initial cruise back in 1981.

It was our honeymoon, departing Sept 20th 1981 on the Carnivale out of Miami, sailing the Eastern Caribbean to St Thomas, San Juan and the Domincan Republic.

Other then a few pictures on board, I have no proof from almost 2 years ago, but it seems a shame we wouldn't somehow get the credit for it.

I got ya beat, I got more than 1 cruise from the late 80s I cant prove. If you can't prove it, let it go, just have to cruise more and make up for it. Its not like the platinum benefits are that great if you have to cruise one more cruise to get to platinum? Some things are not worth getting upset about if you cant change them.

Honestly, back then it cost big bucks to store data and after a few years they wiped it out, not even sure they had platinum back then. Just dont sweat it. You arent alone if that makes you feel better.

Thats strange they dont have record of your cruise.
IF you booked with a travel agent they should be able
to prove you cruised.
My travel agent can tell me what I did years ago but
she keeps good records and I also for some reason
keep papers from each trip I take. So I guess thats
a good habit I have .. Sorry you have lost out for the
credit of a cruise.
Maybe they will find it. Can only hope.

I had my first cruise in 2000 and they didnt have it on file. I managed to find my cruise documents and retrieved the booking#. i emailed it to carnival and they gave me credit for it. ...Hopefully you can locate some documentation from '81.

They might operate a sort of "statute of limitations" thing. I had that on RCCL. They would not grandfather in a cruise I made in 1982 because that was before they started the past cruisers perks.
