Sending package to ship?
 
Thinking of going this route instead of packing my FE gifts in my luggage. Anyone have good or bad experience with this?? How far in advance can I ship my items?

You'll probably get a better response if you indicate which ship and which port.

I mailed my FE gifts. The box was 18x18x18 and weighed 28lbs. I used Fedex and mailed it on a Monday and our ship(Fantasy) left on Saturday. (Fedex said it would be delivered on Wednesday) The box was waiting in our room at 1:30, our luggage didnt show up til 4:30:)
I will be shipping FE's on our next cruise

There's some general info on the FAQ sticky above about sending boxes to PC. Some of it's a little outdated, but worthwhile reading it.

We shipped boxes to Port Canaveral in advance with no problem. They were either in our stateroom when we arrived, or delivered shortly.

I sent my FE gifts following the info in the sticky, although the box was not quite the exact size. I mailed it parcel post a month ahead and the box was in my cabin on arrival.

Can you ship things to Vancouver for the Alaskan cruises?

I don't believe so. DCL typically doesn't accept private deliveries in foreign ports.

I sent an email to DCL about shipping packages to Orlando. Here is the email they sent back.
