another, Remember When......?

remember when, before your cruise, you would receive ( more recently print out ) a book full of coupons you could use around the ship and in the casino ?   There would be drink coupons, casino free plays, photo discounts, etc.


I miss those. Sad

Speaking of casino’s, do they still offer free gaming lessons ? If you went, you could get a coupon book there too.

On Carnival, the gaming lessons are on your in-room TV and there are no additional coupons. Platinum/diamond get a 2-for-1 entry into slot or blackjack tournament.

And ship pins .... I miss those too.

I guess the cruise lines are just like Disney. I remember when camping at Fort wilderness was $22 a night, plus you could get a week package that includes camping, entrance to parks, plus dining coupons to eat anywhere at the resort restaurants. Goes to show as business picks up things gets cut off or you got to pay extra. NOW disney is going to charge for you parking at the resort you stay in per night as high as $24 per night..As long as people will pay the entertainment providers will make the dough.

nothing has been free or a perk since 2007. Then everything went to nickle and dime to death do we part from our money.

If this photo needs an explanation, you haven’t been cruising long.

NCL doesn’t do it. Maybe Carnival still does. I think it has gone out of style because with all of the specialty restaurants, the MDR’s are seldom full enough to warrant the dessert.

Beautiful pic kergan66. Awesome.

Great picture, but I certainly don't miss the 'ceremony'. I thought it was quite unnecessary when they used actual flames, but when they got to sparklers then later electric candles it was pathetic and don't get me started on napkin waving!

I'm glad anytime dining has made this obsolete.

It’s a stock photo. Not one of mine. Thanks anyway.

They did this on Carnival Valor when we were on it in January. It is a train of Baked Alaska!!! Real tasty too!!!
