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.

Congrats on the Dream booking!

Dwayne

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.

I wanted to also add that "sometimes" if you used a TA (which most folks did back then)...they may have some old records to help with the verification.

We had to have 8 cruises added from 1982- 1987.

We had the Embarkation pictures for all but the first one and they accepted a Kodak picture.

Good Luck!!

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.

Thanks for this info. Our high school took a "Senior Cruise" for graduation & I still have the old pass. I will be more than happy to fax them this info if it means getting VIP a cruise sooner.
