Uh Oh we still wear outcasts, usually cuz I am so bad at losing stuff. Did I tell you about losing my cars key fob in Wal-Mart? 4 hours later we found it under an asile...

On Carnival the newbies wear their blue card, and we ask if this is their first cruise or their first Carnival cruise. It is a great ice breaker and often we can help with directions or any questions they might have. This last sailing, there was a fellow with a blue card but it was his 5th Carnival cruise. I explained that he really needed to get that fixed because he won't have all of his sea days counted. It won't make much difference right now, but it will later. He seemed pleased we caught this error.

That was nice of you to help out.
