Quick question. We have sailed once on Princess and thus are gold members. I read that we will receive our Princess pins on our next cruise (in a few weeks). When do they distribute the pins? At check in? I ask because we might want them for a meet and greet. Thanks.

Then it would probably be pretty helpful if I would ask for one!

As a side note, it's not real obvious! I believe it was stuck through a folding card that said "welcome back". It was on our bed if I remember correctly.

I must confess to loving just about everything about Princess. But the pins? Cheesy!

And yes, our gold and platinum pins were stuck through the Welcome Back card in the cabin. Underwhelming. But at least they don't say "Made in China" on the back.

Our platinum pins were mailed to us with our platinum card after cruise #5 and we were so excited. I put the pin on my hat for our embarkation on cruises #6 & #7 expecting the seas to part and to receive a king and queen's treatment. No one noticed. That's okay, Princess always treats us like a king and queen anyway and the added perks are nice too!

I sort of feel the same way. I would probably not wear it, but it would be nice to have!

Neither had I. I got my Platinum pin (and card) during my last cruise, last month.

How long had you been Platinum? This will be my 3 cruise at that level.

I just became Platinum at the end of last month's cruise. My Platinum pin was the first one I'd gotten; I wasn't aware of the different levels until a year or so ago.
