Carnival pins?

Hopefully someone will help you out. In the meantime, I was just on Ebay looking for a Festivale pin and saw there's a Sensation pin listed. The auction for it expires in a little over 8 hours. Here's the link in case you're interested. Good luck to you.

I just happened to look this morning and someone had two of them for sale at "Buy It Now" option. Got it! It was even cheaper than the ones I had been bidding on. Now, hopefully I'll be able to get the Glory one in two weeks. JH said the new pins just say Platinum on them right now.

 

OH YEAH: Just checked again for the Glory pin. A seller had it for $6.99, free shipping. Decided to not take a chance and bought it!!! If I don't need it, I can always resell or give it to my DS or his GF who are joining us on this trip

Its such a little thing that makes some of Happy,.. the ones in the Gift shop are too large to match the older style....:(

So glad you got the pins and I hope you have a great time on Glory. We were on her 2 years ago (Eastern Caribbean) and really enjoyed our cruise.

Yesterday, I was at a travel fair and spoke with a lady from Carnival. She said Carnival is planning to scrap the Platinum program sometime in the future and move to a program where days aboard ship are counted. So the more days you have the higher level you are. She did not know of any new pins that are ship specific and thought any new type pin would most likely include number of days. Sort of like HAL. This is contrary to what John H. said in his blog but I tend to believe the lady I spoke with. We will see.

I heard about the days rather than sailings. I am 3 sailings away from Milestone now but with that 200+ sail dates taking over, I will be Plat forever as I only have 158 days now. 4 levels rather than 3.

Hope they do get the ship specific pins back as there are lots of collectors. Even if selling them in the gift store.

I assume you are close to 25 cruises. I have about same number and 167 days. So we are in the same boat. LOL

Additional comment about Freddie pin. It is a lot bigger than the funnel pins. Measures 1 3/4" high, 1 3/8" wide
