What do you buy or take home as a souvenir ?     Do you keep your S & S cards ( we used to have to turn them in at the end of the week ) ?     Do you buy shot glasses ? T-shirts? hats ?


I used to buy the enameled ship pins, but they have been discontinued.    I do keep all the S&S cards now.   I bring home the daily planner, but I don't keep them.

I have little paintings of our cruise ship done on pieces of driftwood from Punta Arenas.

REALLY tacky.... but I love em'.

I have a wall of golf balls sitting on top of shot glasses......Double Tacky......

We also have a wall of SHAME.....Shame on us for buying such souvenirs......

and we have Pictures....lots of pictures.....Getting on the ship-----getting off the ship----sitting by the pool------dancing.....(video is really embarrassing)----with pirates----without pirates.......

Plenty of coffee cups, T-shirts----golf shirts........Underwear---(Don't ask)....

and we love every piece.

We give the grand tour to guest......and laugh when my Granddaughter rolls her eyes......

As long as you like them.

I usually buy a ball cap for each cruise. And a shirt

I buy different souvenirs. If the ship sells a ship ornament, I buy it. Right now I have about 15 of them. If not I purchase a model of the ship if it isn't too big. Usually I will buy something in the logo shop - maybe a water bottle, cover-up or a tee for my husband. One time we purchased a pretty globe. We usually end up with extra OBC that we need to use up. I prefer to buy a nice piece of jewelry - not too expensive just to remind me of the cruise. Since we now live in a condo we don't have much room for more stuff. Last year we did purchase an art piece for my husband. I always bring home something for the grand kids too. In ports we usually only buy postcards but one time we did buy nice watches in St Thomas for a good price. Gloria

Here we go. This is most of them. Early cruises we had to turn them in as we were disembarking for the last time.

OK, That's a lot of cruises......

It takes me two years to save for each long cruise.

I guess that if I want to cruise a great deal I'll have to retire to Florida.....

In the meantime....Tomorrow at 8:00 A.M. sales call 10:00 A.M. Sales meeting with the boss. 2:00 pm to end of day.....Sales calls.

Man, I got to get a life.......

We've been at this for awhile. We try to take 1 every 18 months or so. We've had to cancel a few too. Usually a really good one, like Alaska, or Europe. Both because I got hurt at work 2 1/2 years ago. Also, because we live in NY, we don't have to worry about airfare. Provided we want to go to either Canada, Bermuda, Nassau, or do a 10 day Caribbean. The pet sitter is an expense though. It's a little less not having the dog though. Honestly though, if I could have him back, I'd gladly pay the higher fees. Nervous

I keep my S&S cards and lots of Photo's in the digital Photo frame, T shits or Polo's from places I have visited, Some prints hanging in the hall way and my memories. I joke that when I get old my nurse will point to the photo's on the wall to remind me where I had been long ago.

I did purchase souvenirs on my first cruise but that was the first and only time.
