Default Ship Pins?

According to John Healds Blog: The pins are now in every onboard shop and I hope that even though some of you have to pay for them that the fact that are available again is appreciated.

Can anyone confirm?

Can confirm that has been the word for some time now. Platinum folks get them free.

Platinum guests did receive them on the Dream on Dec 3rd. We got ours.

However, I am not certain if it is fleetwide yet.

Sometimes John's ideas take awhile to materialize.

We were on the Valor in Sept and did not get one....and this was after John's statement.

So I would say it depends on how soon you are cruising.

Platinum guests on Triumph did NOT get pins last week. Even someone who went to the pursers desk to pursue the issue.

The pins for sale in the shops were not the same size as the pins that they have been giving, they were bigger, so dont match the others.

Are they the same style - the red whale-tail stack with the ship name?

Fantasy out of Mobile debarking last monday (Tuesday because of fog). We got our pins, like the originals, in our cabin one evening. We didn't check the gift shop.
