Cabin Decoration Question

So we set sail in 173 days.. YAY!! I wanted to surprise my dad and step mom with some stateroom decorations and some sweets. I have one problem.. I don't know their stateroom number. If I call Carnival will they be able to help me out? My dad booked the cruise for all of us, so I am assuming they can look it up by my booking info maybe?

Darn good question... question is will they...and if they do, just mebbe some folks could make a pretty good case for them NOT doing something like that. Same reason hotels aren't supposed to give out your room number. He must have an online account with them, any way to wangle their login/password out of them? Be interested in just how much privacy/security they provide.

I don't know.. I just want to pay for it and surprise them. I think I will call and find out. I am sure they would take my money over the phone, wouldn't they?

Probably, without them giving you an actual cabin number, or even admitting theyre on the ship...but that doesn't make a lot of sense does it? let us know, Im really curious...good luck.

Give Carnival a call, they are happy to help you. On the Carnival web site they have a "Gift" section where you can get gifts for people on a cruise or to order things for your cabin like snacks, booze, special occasion cake or decorations. I use this to order myself a case of bottled water to my cabin (Much less then buying it in bars one at a time.

If your father booked your cabin on the same cruise the reservations should be linked together for dinning times and charges.

WE have ordered flowers to my parents on a few cruises for b-days or anniversaries in the past when we were not on the cruise.

I’ve ordered surprise gifts for a friend cruising on Carnival, and didn’t have the booking number. All I needed was the names of the guests, sailing date and name of the ship. Hope you are able to surprise your dad and stepmom. Happy

Good stuff///learn something almost every day...

Good luck with this. Great idea.

If for any reason (and I do not think there will be) you can always ask your father what all the cabin numbers are because you were looking at a deck plan of the ship and were curious where the cabins were and what was around them etc.

If you are buying the decorations from Carnival there will be no problem. As BonMike mentioned, you know the date and their names Carnival will do the rest. They will not release the room number to you... even with you being on the same cruise. Have fun! What a nice thing for you to do!

Yep, just gave them the names and they took my money :) It was almost too easy

My step mom is retiring a few days before we leave, and they were gracious enough to take all of us on a cruise, the least I could do is send them some cookies and cute decorations. I am going to do the Dr Seuss ones for our room.. my son is 4 and LOVES Dr Seuss. I think that will just add to his excitement.

Thanks everyone!

Sounds like you are already having a good time,and you haven't even stepped onto the ship! I would enjoy watching you and your family on this cruise.
