After two cruises I plan on ordering baskets for our upcoming cruise next Sept on the Dream. My father who is traveling with us “should” (cross fingers) be completed with his cancer treatment by January. For the past year he has not been able to enjoy his favorite thing, red wine. I am planning on making this trip his “end of cancer celebration” (has has cruised with us the other two times and loves it). So a basket for him would include some wine and other items. I am very excited to see his reaction when he sees it in his cabin. I am also going to have them made for my kids (a teen and a tween). I know I have plenty of time but how close to my cruise date should I order?

I called her about 2 weeks before my cruise, and had no problems whatsoever... I'm getting ready to post pics of their baskets.

Our Gift Basket

Here are a few pics of the gift "basket" we sent our kids. We did one combined basket for them, and I had her add a Mickey and Minnie for them.

The basket had sand toys, coloring books, crayons, capri suns, cookies, chips











She went thru options on capri suns, chips, cookies. She was going to include the temporary tattoos, but my daughter's skin is so sensitive, we don't let her use them, so she substituted stickers for them.

We were very pleased. This was around $100, but would have been about $80 without the Mickey & Minnie. That included the sales tax and shipping fee.

Trying to find some good ideas for a basket for my DD's 16th birthday cruise. Do they allow balloons to be attached to the baskets delivered?

Hello Mousetravel - the best thing to do is call me at 800-950-4559 and we can give you ideas also no types of balloons are allowed on any of the ships at the port due to the environmental laws.
thanks for taking the time to write

Oh, OK. I don't need anything till June, but I want to get some ideas, and I'll probably want to mail a few things to be added to it. After I posted my question, I went back through the whole thread and seen a few baskets with balloons attached. They must have changed the rules over the last few years about the balloons.?

These baskets are awesome! And it's great to know that she works within a budget but my question is, does she deliver to the Disney Resorts? DF and I are debating on whether or not a cruise is within the means for next year, so we might end up just doing a WDW stay. But I would love to have this little bit of magic for my DD waiting at the resort! TIA!

Call me about 2 to 3 weeks out since that is one of our busiest month and we want to make sure that we can chat without feeling under the thumb - calling that few weeks away makes it much more comfortable
thanks for taking the time to write and look forward to speaking to you
always
Me

The other was a bottle of wine and champagne in a little canvas tote bag.

Shirley has great ideas - just give her a call!
Love the tote with the wine and champagne-would you please PM me the cost and how you ordered this one?
