Mike King Has Your Ring Lost on Port Canaveral Carnival Cruise

Mike King of Melbourne, Florida was on a Carnival Cruise Line sailing in late February 2017 with his wife. As the couple were packing up to disembark the cruise ship in Port Canaveral, Florida, King checked inside the cabin safe. As he was moving his hand around in the safe, in one far rear corner he felt something. It was the ring pictured here.

The Carnival Cruise Line Lost and Found policy is clear.

“All leftover items recovered on board are forwarded to our Lost and Found Department and kept for thirty (30) days. You can send your inquiry to guestcare@carnival.com.  Please provide a detailed description of the item(s) in question as well as the last place seen. We will do everything possible to locate the item(s).

All item(s) that are located will be shipped to guests at their expense (including a $20.00 USD handling fee). A Lost and Found representative will contact you to make arrangements for delivery.

Please be advised that electronic cigarettes that have been left behind will not be sent back to our shoreside Lost and Found Department due to the fact that many have leaked and/or caused damage.”

But, King chose to take the ring home and try to find the owner on his own.  “It felt like it was more of a family heirloom,” he said. King said he doesn’t know if the ring would be worth much, but he said the thought that it could carry sentimental value to someone concerned him; after all it was in the safe.

“Things went through my head of looking in lost and found boxes — things never really get back to their rightful owners,” he said.

Now, instead of Carnival securing the ring, King has the ring and the odds of the person who lost it, finding him are remote at best.  Three Carnival cruise ship sailed from Port Canaveral in late  February. Carnival Liberty, Carnival Magic and Carnival Sunshine. But, there is no hint from King which cruise ship safe held the ring.
