Default 45 Day Letter

Hello Cruisemates,

I'm concerned that some people think that you send a letter 45 days before your cruise to get a complimentary gift. Send your letter of compliment or of complaint anytime after your last cruise. I feel that the sooner you do it the better. It would make it easier for the cruiseline to give feedback to the crew member or members.

The letter I had written was because of a couple of sub-standard experiences on my last cruise. I also included some compliments. I also included names if I could. I especially included names for the compliments. I did receive a letter that instructed me to call a special phone number with in 45 days of my next cruise. It took a while to get a reply. When it came I was surprised and since I hadn't booked another cruise yet I stuck it on the fridge. At that time I hadn't heard about the "45 Day Letter".

I don't know what others think but if you are sending your letter 45 days before your cruise you may not receive the complimentary gift from Carnival. Hope it helps.

Carol

I sent mine in 70 days until my next cruise and still have not heard anything. I leave in 32 days.

That is why I posted this. I had read a couple of posts that sounded like people thought they should write 45 days before their cruise. I'm sure you will get a letter. But if it comes after this cruise you can use it on your next. Have a grand time!

Another thing to remember is that writing a letter after a cruise doesn't automatically get a gift for your next cruise. Sounds like Carnival tries to reward feedback but I would never believe that every letter gets a gift.

True True... I had written just to let them know about some substandard issues with my cruise. We had 4 cabins of family and friends. And when I sent the letter I also included compliments about some outstanding crewmembers. I was very surprised when I got the letter. At that time no one had written here about the 45 day letter. Or I had not read a post about it.
