Leaving Sunday. Quick question!

Is there any reason to wear our pin lanyards to the port? Or should I just stuff them in our suitcases? Does anyone pin trade?

Embarkation is far too busy a time for the CMs to wear their lanyards.

On the ship, you'll see Guest Services, merchandizing, and CMs outside the restaurants wearing lanyards SOMETIMES. The key is that when they get busy, the lanyards go under the counter. There are pin trading events on board.

No pin trading at the terminal that I have ever seen.....but onboard they usually do in the evenings in the atrium. But, I have seen people wearing their pins lanyards in the terminal.

You can wear them if you want to put your KTTW card in there after you get it, though.

You will see crew members in front of the lunch restaurants wearing lanyards with pins ...the ones who give you your wet nap!
