Do You Take the Postcards?

In the back of the hardbound leather manual in the room (contains general info, room service menu, etc.) there are always postcards of the ship, stationery that says "Written at Sea" & envelopes. I always take these "souvineers" to add to my ship memorabilia. Do all of the lines do this and do you take them?

I take them - with the very best of intentions to actually write, address and post them. Haven't followed through yet...

Carnival used to have some sitting on the desk, but they I have seen one for the last few cruises (could be I was just unlucky). Yes, I take them for the albums I never seem to get to.

Never took the post cards. The small pads of paper and pens I did take. When I used to work I always had a pen from some cruise line or another on my desk....... reminded me why I was working.

If the postcard is a photo of the ship, I'll take it. If is just advertising the cruise line, I leave it. HAL now gives us a complimentary ship photo so I take that instead. It is a photo, not a postcard, though.

Yep I still have my HAL Amsterdam photo hanging on my 'frig.

I take them as souvenirs.
