A few months ago Carnival canceled the past guest party pins and there was much sadness and crying in the streets. And so, I took up your challenge and did my best to see if we could change the minds of those at the top of the Carnival tree……..and I did …… well…….a little bit. Here is the official statement from Vance and the PR office.
We’ve conducted extensive research on the past guest pins regarding their popularity and how many guests are retaining them. Since our research indicated that platinum guests (10 Carnival cruises or more) were the most likely to keep the pins, the decision has been made to make the pins exclusive to Carnival’s platinum guests.
Pins will also be available for sale in Carnival’s gift shops beginning in late October.
We are pleased to continue to offer the pins, which many guests consider a treasured memento of their Carnival cruise.
