Default Lapel pins

Does anyone know where I could get a Sensation lapel pin? I know they do not give them on the 3 and 4 day cruises and I would like to find one to add to the collection of pins I have now. I have found them on ebay and have managed to get outbid everytime. Any help is appreciated.

I don't have a "Sensation" pin, but do have extras of some of the others. On E-Bay, you just about have to be "present" when the auction ends. Decide how much you're willing to pay, then wait until the last 20 seconds or so to submit your bid. Chances are good that you'll succeed!

Hope this may help you. We (wife and I) were missing our Conquest pins to complete our collection of all cruise ships we were on.

I just emailed Carnival and asked them to please send me one and they did!

I didn't want to start a new subject on this. However this question needs to be answered: Is Carnival or is Carnival not giving out the lapel pins from each ship? I read where some say no and then some say yes. Can we get a definite answer here? Sure would be nice. Thanks!

The answer is yes and no. Oficially Carnival has discontinued giving out pins to all. However there are still pins out there and usually by asking you can get one.
I think Carnival was completely surprised by the outcry from passengers. They are currently reconsidering and I think you will see the pins brought back in some form either as a gift or as an available item in the gift shop.

ScurvyDog,

Thanks. Sounds reasonable. We will be on the Liberty this month and I'll let you all know if they hand out pins. Last few cruises we were on we got them with the invitation to the Past Cruisers cocktail party. Also, Carnival may have thought this would save them a little money but they underestimated what cruisers like. Sometimes bean counters don't have a realistic viewpoint. Oh well, as long as I can cruise I will be happy, pin or not

Yes, some ships still have them. We got some on Carnival Spirit in June. Officially, when they are gone, they're gone.

Some ships do sell heavier versions of the ship pins - I think Fantasy had them in the past.

Even if they don't hand them out on the shorter cruises, you can always ask at the purser's desk for one. If they have any, you might get lucky.

You could try emailing Guest Relations, but that can often be a crap shoot.

We got pins on the Fantasy in August 2008. It was our second cruise with Carnival and it was in our room with the invitation for past guest reception.

We'll be on the Conquest in 9 days. I'll find out first hand if the pins are there or not.

hopefully they bring the Pins back, my fiance' has been collecting them from all his cruises. I did have to email Carnival and request Celebration pins since that was only a 4 day cruise.

He will be bummed if they stop giving out the pins. They should at least sell them.
