World Map

So a few years ago I saw a post on one of my cruise pages where a lady said her son took a world map on their cruise and had crew members sign their name on their home country. A couple years ago I bought a world map so I could do this on my next cruise. Sadly, I forgot to take it. I just came across the map as I was looking for something else. Guess what, it is now with the suitcase so it will be going on our May cruise. I'm excited.

What a fun thing to do! Enjoy your adventure! You should keep it in your suitcase for the next cruise as well and be sure they add the ship. It will be a wonderful addition to your memories.

Sounds like a great idea ... but things might get a tad crowded with many signatures for small countries like Malaysia, Philippines and Indonesia where most crew originate from. Good luck.

Thank you :)

I plan to get one for each cruise because I do scrapbooking. I would add that to the book.

Thank you :)

I thought of that, I will have one from each country sign it and if need be, draw an arrow to their home.

When I was a teenager I had pen pals and I tried to get one from each country. I had 75. I had a world map with stick pins at each place I had a pen pal. Blue for boys, green for girls.

Interesting idea. Could turn into quite the hobby. We are the world.

That’s a pretty cool idea.

Thank you. I want to get one for each cruise we go on. I do scrap booking so each one would go with the book.

Thank you so much.

Fantastic idea! Now I need to find a good source for world maps so I can take a new one on each cruise!

Question for the group: What size map do you think would be best for this? Too small and you can’t fit all the signatures. Too big and you really can’t display them.
