I've been writing to ask about cruise-cards, here on the Memorabilia section
and at other CC Message Board locations but it seems no one collects cruise cards
beyond saving their own 'Sail & Sign' cards as a memento, only to be forgotten in a drawer somewhere!
I've recently discovered it's not that difficult to ask around among friends and acquaintances
-even in my small island community- to receive cards that turn out to be quite interesting.
Now that I have a few different ones (Carnival mostly)
I'm seeing all sorts of major and minor design changes that make a collection worthwhile.
As a collector, you already know that variation is the basis for all collections.
For what it's worth
here are a few cards I've recently acquired..
After returning from a memorable cruise, most people don't throw out their cruise cards, I'm sure..
they serve as an integral part of your holiday memories.
They get stuck away somewhere, not seeing the light of day for years!
Anyone who's been saving their old cruise cards 'for a reason,but not quite sure just what'
might consider donating them to a collector like me? Please?
Are there any other cruise-card collectors? -I'd love to know!
Please have a dig around to see what you can find.
Oh by the way...I live on the Caribbean island of Barbados
and this is one of my local beaches.
Thought you might like to see.
