Didn't get to buy much... loved the plush doll of Captain Mickey - very cute. It was $21.


Also got a little replica of the Magic, I think it was $28:


Other than that, there's a cool T-shirt available - blue colored with a cartoonish Disney ship and the characters on the front, but I somehow forgot to go get that one.

We have these too and love them!


Also pins with the ship and CC. Beach towels, tshirts, nothing special there though.

We started collecting pins on our first cruise. They have DCL ones and ones for each country visited. Our 2nd cruise I bought bunches on e-bay thinking my DGD would like to trade but she wanted to keep most of them! So, now we just collect... They're small mementos, don't take up much room and can hang on a lanyard in a room so you can look and dream and remember. And of course, the CC beach towels, t shirts and other stuff with the DCL logo and characters on it. Be sure to go to the shop on CC as I think they have some different stuff than is on the boat.

I love the towels we got from castaway cay. I also bought the DCL Propeller clock that they have in all the staterooms for my father-in-law and he loves it.

I am going to be getting Golden Mickey statue and DCL exclusive Duffy (Disney Bear, that is) on our upcoming Valentine cruise. I hope they still have them in stock. I have an 8 year old son also and he said he wants the bear.

Our best souvenir has turned out to be the little plastic replica of the ship. She is taking it everywhere and telling all about the pirates night party, the pool & slide and the ship stacks. We paid like $3.95 for it. She didn't ask for it, but I got it because I thought it would be good to show at kindergarten. And I was right! DD is 5.

Also with a $30 purchase they had beach towels for $10.95 and they were really cute and good quality.

They had additional purchase with purchase opportunities too. So, check that out!

I also like the beach towels from Castaway Cay. They are really nice quality. I also buy pins and always an ornament.

The best one in my book is the pillowcase signed by the characters, that you turn in at Guest Services on board. It just takes preplanning. Once you are onboard it is too late to get plain pillowcases and sharpies. My DS says it is his favorite thing.

^^^ Is that the pillowcase with the DCL logo you are talking about? If so, how did you get it before getting onboard?

I don't know about one with the DCL logo. I had a simple white one with several different colors, 6 or 7 sharpies, in a gallon zip loc bag. Guest services wrote down our cabin, my DS name, age, and boy or girl with any special requests. All in all there were 16 autographs on ours. I even requested no Princessess. There may have been more if my DS would have wanted those. We got it back the last night of the cruise.

My kids love their pillowcases, too. I ordered them off ebay with their favorite character embroidered along with their name and "Disney Wonder" and they are SO cute!

Although the sharpies have run a bit, so get a good fabric pen if you do this.

I got a DCL photo album which I love!

We also bought a stuffed sailor Mickey & sailor Pluto, an ornament of the ship, a scrapbook, and a DCL sailor hat. I think our favorite was the ship replica for $28 because we had the captain sign it.
