Default 45 day letter, got my Gift!!

Hello everyone!
I called this moring and got my gift from Carnival.
I took the bar coupons as my first choice and Photo coupon as my second.

They offered the following:

Wine/champange
Fruit basket
Assort Chocolates
Bon voyage decorations

I asked about OBC but of course they said no, but hey... had to ask.

Excellent! I'm still waiting as well, but of the things offered, I too would take the drink coupons, or the wine. I'll let y'all know if I get an offer at all.

Ive never gotten anything from Carnival on 9 cruises. I didnt ask for anything which is probably the reason why. Do you just write or call them for freebies or do you have to have another reason to begin with?

Briguy,
In the past I had never received anything either but I also didn't know anything about the 45 day letter. I did write this time, it was just a letter saying how much we liked Carnival and how I liked some things better then Princess. I asked if they would ever cruise out of San Francisco. Not much more then that and I got my letter rather quickly. Now I too am waiting to call. Doesn't hurt to write, always nice having a little something extra when you board.

Yes, it will be a nice way to start off my cruise...
Thank you to all my cruisemates if it weren't for you and this site I wouldn't know much about anything especially the 45 day letter...

So here's to you, all my friends on cruisemates, our first drink will be a toast to you....

Good luck to all of you who are still waiting....

What did they tell you about sailing from SF? I have rarely seen a Carnival ship here and it would be nice if they sailed from here more often. I think the biggest issue is location. Its hard to do a 7 day to Alaska or Mexico and see very much. Carny doesnt do 10 dayers. Say hi to Walnut Creek. I love that town as I used to live there. I also went to SMC.

I sent my letter in Monday. I was wondering how many drink cupons do you get?
There was 3 in our cabin and will be the same three on this trip. So I was wondering if it would be enough for all three or if its for one person. Thank you. I still have a long time to worry about it. Hahaha

Do a serch on the 45 day letter it will bring up all kinds of post on it. One of the post has the address where you write to Carnival.
And it explaines all about it.

I sent an email about my previous experience on the Fantasy and the club o2 director. I wasnt sure if I was going to receive a letter but either way I felt that that director needed to be recognized. That was the best cruise I've had with that few of teens. I did receive a letter about 2 weeks after I wrote the email. I cruise again in October for halloween on the Fantasy. So I am debating on what I should pick.

Briguy,
I just asked if they were ever going to have cruises out of San Francisco. They never answered my question directly but said they would pass it along to the correct department. We did a 10 day out of San Francisco once on Princess, it was great. WC says 'Hi' back.

Where do you "search" for the letter, on this board or on the carnival site? I typed in 45 day letter in the search area on here and got 45 pages of hits. I'm not going through 45 pages.......

If you are still interested in reading the posts you can search "45 day letter" just a little ways down, you will see it as the topic and it's 2 pgs long... if you don't want to mess with that then...

Here you go, from another cruismate,
Here's the address........

Guest Relations
Carnival Cruise Lines
Carnival Place
3655 NW 87 Avenue
Miami, Fl. 33178-2428
305-599-2600

Good luck..........
