Our first ever cruise and Disnet cruise to boot is the 7 day eastern carribean on 4/28!!!!

1. do they always keep the markers from signing pillow cases etc?

2. does anyone worry about handing over thier passports??? I would love to have the stamps ( since I currently only have one) but not sure

3. maybe a silly? but do they sell scrap book supplies on board?

THANKS TO ALL!!!

I put mine in a baggie with my room number on it. I've done this twice and both times I got my markers back.

I guess I should have been worried, but the thought didn't cross my mind. I had no problem getting it back. I went down the last night and picked it back up. Just besure and have a photo copy of it with you and keep up with the paper they give you. I kept mine in the safe in a file folder that I take with me for important papers.

Yes they do, but if I remember right it was HIGH!

Unless something has changed since this past November, U.S. citizens do not surrender their passports when boarding the ship.

We are talking about getting passport stamps. In order to get it stamped, you have to turn your passport in to guest services.

They had a small sellection. WDW has different products. I have found some at on-line suppliers. I am a beginning scrapbooker. I tried to scrapebook our 2004 WDW trip. I had a huge storage box of $$$ of stuff. I JUST GOT STARTED 3 WEEKS AGO!

ANYWAY I have started collecting things to SB our 2008 cruise. (not doing our 2006). I found tropical Disney SC supplies at WALMART!! I have a good start - considering it is 13 months away. I think looking for a theme over a long period of time ends up with all kinds of surprises. Michael's had a great sale and had a lot of summer/beach/tropical sets for $1. Got about 6 there. They even had a black and white ("DCL looking") cruise ship. I will get what they have on board too. I work with a couple of pro SBers. (One does (organizes) a women's SB retreat every spring and fall. They stay in their PJs all day and SB!) SO I have good advise nearby!

We had a picture mat signed, I put it in a large manilla envelope with my sharpie (I choose to only use black). Just to be sure I got it back, I put our name and room number on the back of the mat. We just made sure to get a picture that fit the direction of the mat opening (specifically asked the photographer to take the picture of my dds and Mickey vertically.) You may want to put post-its on the mat frame indicating the top and bottom of the mat, so they will know which way you plan on hanging to picture. I also remember reading that people used fabric markers on the pillowcases not sharpies to not get fading. The scrapbooking kit for sale on the ship is $15, includes 4 sticker sheets, 6 designed paper sheets (12 x 12), 1 sheet of border sticker, and 4 paper frames.

I have not sailed yet but my friend told me that they do have cruise specific scrapbook items on board. I know they do not sell cruise items at the parks or downtown disney and I have not seen DCL items on line.

On Ebay you can find:

2 cruisline scrapbook items online now.
15 items if you type cruise scrapbook.
226 items (mostly pins) if you type Disney Cruise Line.
Try:cruise line in Collectibles > Disneyana > Contemporary (1968-Now) > Pins, Buttons and you get 144 items.

Just to name a few.

I have a Disney Cruise Scrapbooking Kit that I bought a downtown disney about a year ago. Maybe they don't sell them anymore, but they did at one time.

I've been over to Downtown Disney 3 times this past month but did not find any cruise specific items. I always keep hoping they stick some out on the shelves. There is a lady on ebay that makes awesome paper piecings. I have some of them and absolutely love them. She is going to make some custom pieces for me after the cruise. I'm going to send her some specific pics for her to copy. If anyone is interested, e-mail me and I will give you her info.

Smile Signed Menus

Hi All,
I'm having so much fun reading all the posts! My hubby and I have been on 2 Disney cruises. (4 day and Eastern 7 day) We've got the 10 day Med cruise in June. Can't wait!!! I have not seen it mentioned here, but we have always had our favorite "themed night" menu (the last one was pirate night) signed by our head server, food server, and drink server. You really get to know them after a week long cruise! Plus some of the menus are so beautiful we have had them framed as art. (get two so you can frame the front and back in one) We also like to look back and see what we ate that cruise! Good for memories... We'll that's my two cents...

Happy cruising!

Good thought. I totally forgot about the menus! Our son has a pirate themed room and his pirate night menu is on the wall.
