Welcome aboard! Applejack, I think you'll find that most of our Members are classy and don't complain about the small stuff.
cruise4ev (great name!), Holland America, another of Carnival Corp.'s lines, has the same policy. I asked while onboard as I got a wonderful photo of our waiter and wanted to send it to him. He asked that I send it to headquarters and they'd be sure he'd receive it. Good luck... and I know that Ricky will appreciate the kind words!
