Default Past Guest pins

Is carnival doing away with past guest pins. We did not recieve any when we cruised on the Fantasy in Feb. The stewart told us they were presently out of past guest pins. I contacted Carnival and was told past guest pins were no longer available for the Fantasy. Has anyone else had this problem? Thanks.

I didn't get mine on the Destiny in March but I thought it was just due to a lousy room steward (he was).

I wrote Carnival via email when I got home. In the email I included my past guest number and sailing date and cabin number.

Carnival sent pins for me and my two friends (whom were also returners).

As far as the Fantasy goes, I'm not sure what to tell you there....

We got them on the Conquest. I think they run out occasionally. Ask Carnival to send you one.

For years, the Fantasy did not have pins because it did 3/4 day cruises only. These did not have Past Cruise Parties, therefore no pins were needed.

When it was moved to New Orleans, it started the 4/5/5 day cruises which of course DOES have a Past Cruiser Party and folks have been asking for over a year....where are our pins? We were told, they were not in the budget!

GOOD NEWS...they are now in the budget and Fantasy pins are flowing!!

YEA!!! A friend just got off a 5 day and did receive his Fantasy pin.

All is well in the world!!!

I'm glad you recieved yours for the Fantasy. Carnival e-mailed me telling me they were not available anymore. If anyone has a fantasy pin they want to part with, i'm interested. I collect them on my cruise hat. Thanks.

Gary,

You can always check EBAY as well. I've seen pins on their site before. Although you should NOT have to pay for one...



I'm sorry that happened to you! I love my pins...I'd be so disappointed.

Gary & Joanne,

If you will PM me after the Blog2NOLA cruise in February, I'll try to get you your coveted pin. I won't promise anything, but I will try....and if that doesn't work, I'll get Kuki to try!

Thanks Melody,
I actually just found a Fantasy past guest pin on e-bay I am watching.
With some luck, it could be mine. Glad to hear from a fellow cajun. If I don't win the auction, I'll PM you. Thanks.

Years ago, Fantasy did have pins but were discontinued. They only recently brought the pins back. When did you email Carnival?

I recently emailed them about pins owned me letting them know that wasn't a valid excuse anymore. I'm waiting to hear back or for my pins to arrive.

I'm going on my 2nd cruise in Febuary and have never heard of a past guest pin. Should I have one and is it worth trying to get? What are these pins for besides collecting?

Starting with your second cruise, you will receive the pins on a card in your cabin, along with an invitation to the past guests' party.
The pins are a nice remembrance, but basically only worth collecting.

We received a pin for the Inspiration in 05 & 06. Didn't receive one for the Sensation last year. Just in case won one on ebay for this cruise coming up for the Glory. We were told they don't give them out anymore.

I have always gotten one on the longer cruises from Carnival.

I have been on 4 Carnival cruises and never received 1 pin. Didn't know anything about them till I read this board. I'm going on one next January. I'll have to make sure I get one this time around.
