Default 45 Day Letter but no gift

I received what I thought was my 45 day letter today expecting to order a bottle of champagne for my next cruise, but it was just a nice letter thanking me for my comments and suggestions. I referenced my May cruise although they just said they looked forward to welcoming me in May. Has anyone else gotten a letter like this recently? The only odd thing is that the letter was not from Customer Relations which is what I've received in the past, but from an adviser in the Office of the President. Is this the new norm?

It's been like this for the past couple of months.

Carnival reads the boards and got wise to everybody sending in their comments looking for a freebie.

Yeah I was thinking of sending in a letter just to get a freebie but if Carnival has gotten wise about everyone doing this, I won't bother now!

I think the new booking (within x days of return) incentive for the $50 obc is better anyway.

I've heard about that but how does that work? I've been on 10 CCL cruises and never get any OBC and I usually book within a month of return.

It's called the Welcome Back program. Mainly promoted through TA's.

I have booked all my trips through TA's and none has ever said anything about it. I have read a few times where people have mentioned it.

Oh well not a big deal as I usually get a decent deal anyway.

Thans for the response.
