The Freebies We Used to Get

Though I still haven't found my Grand Buffet pics, I did find these giveaways from Holland America.   Our documents came in the wallets. The bags were in our cabins when we arrived. I think the luggage tags came in the mail a couple of weeks after our cruise.

I have one of those bags from HAL and a few from Celebrity. The wallets came with the cruise packet, tickets and luggage tags. I also have some beer can sleeves from Admiral cruise lines.

We got a few nice freebies from Celebrity on our cruise last winter. We were in a sky suite for the last leg of that trip so I think it had more to do with that than having advanced status in the frequent cruiser club. This spring, RC gave us a pin... woot woot.

Honestly, I wish the lines would dispense with some of the cheaper crap (and yes, I do think it is crap) at the lower levels of their frequent cruiser clubs. I'd much rather get a better Internet discount than a cheap pin that we throw away - every time. It really is a waste.

I used to buy the enameled ship pins. Another casualty of $$$ cutbacks.

Here is some more stuff that's been accumulated over the years.  Some bought. Some not. There is more, somewhere amongst the boxes. The NCL ship near the upper left is a flash drive.  The coins are from the ships that mint(ed) their own tokens. The casino chips are $5 or less.  The best souvenir we have is the custom bobblehead we had done on Norwegian a few years ago.  I have to find that one.

I have mine, too. 

On the Grand Voyage they gave us a zippered royal blue shoulder bag with an included cosmetic matching case inside filled with toiletries.  Much better uality than the ones you normally get.I have mine, too.  On the Grand Voyage they gave us a zippered royal blue shoulder bag with an included cosmetic matching case inside filled with toiletries.  Much better quality than the ones you normally get.

Found the bobblehead.  There's hope yet for the Grand Buffet pics.  I'll look tonight.

NCL still offers these.  They take your images, then send them to the company. I think they're in China.  It took a few weeks, but they e-mail you for approval along the way.   We ordered these on the GEM.

I like the freebies but I'm still a newbie and my collection isn't too large yet.  The cheap bags Princess gave out this last cruise where handy in port for hauling souvenirs back to the ship and I'll throw it in the car for groceries until it falls apart.  My RCCL luggage tag was actually stolen off my bag and they were nice enough to send me a new one.
