Something special for birthday on cruise

Looking to do something special for wife's birthday while on our cruise in May. Anybody have suggestions besides the ordinary birthday dinner maybe outside the box to make her feel special?  Thanks everyone.

Surprise her with a spa visit. Have a wonderful cruise.

The spa visit sounds great. You could also have Carnival decorate the cabin with birthday decorations and deliver a birthday cake. I believe these are reasonably priced. I realize this isn't way out of the box. I'm sure you guys will have a great time.

Ask the cruise line if you can have dinner at the Captains table on the night of her B-day. It does not happen all the time, but it has happened before. If your cruising Carnival you can contact John Heald at

If you never ask you never get...... never hurts to ask.

Ok, here is the best souvenir you can buy, if Carnival offers it.

go to the photo gallery and ask if they do the custom bobblehead figures. If they do, DO IT ! It will be a lasting memory and a great b-day gift. It takes a few weeks but it’s worth it.

enjoy the cruise

A couples massage, then dinner in the steak house.

Spa and if the ship has a thermal spa get a pass for the duration of the cruise. Definitely a treat
