took our first cruise a looooooong time ago, back in the 70s on the carnival carnivale. we didnt cruise for almost 30 yrs. we have now cruised 8 times and really looking forward to our 10 so we can get the "v i p" treatment.
we can not find our documents that said we cruised in the 70s. how can i prove this. does carnival keep records that far back?
ok any help would be appreciated.
oh yea....booked cruise on the dream today. now counting down the days...18 months is a long way away.lol
Hi macmom, I moved this here. I hope you got my message. I really don't know how far back they have the records. They changed their past guest record keeping system several years back and were putting the old ones in a database. I had some cruises missing and they found them. I was on the Carnivale 1993 and they found it and the cabin number.
Go to your profile on their site. Look at your cruise history, there is a link to make an Add/Update Cruise History request. Put all the details you have there. They will research it and then add it.
My wife cruise on Carnival in the early 80's and they had the information.
I have to give them kudos for taking the time to enter all the old info they could into a database. They still have a few quirks with it. I had two past guest numbers and had changed addresses and phone numbers. They still found the cruises and combined them. It just took them a while.
I have to admit, Carnival has the best record keeping system in the industry. They found one of mine in the early 90's that I was afraid was lost forever. It may not be on a computer database but they probably have microfiche of cruises from decades ago.
We will be happy to enter these older sailings into the system manually and update your cruise history but we will need to verify your past sailings with Carnival Cruise Lines.

LHP, Thanks for posting the additional information. I hope they can find it for macmom. Mine was lost before they had them on the site. I just called a number, of course mine was only in the early 90's. It still took them a little while because of having two past guest numbers.
