Yes...I have seen white, black, yellow, green, blue, pink and red.

On the cruise they did sell the yellow one.

Plus there is a commemorative Black one for the 2011 Dream inaugural season.

Anyone seen these used for signatures? All I can think of is with a silver Sharpie.

Bump...........10 things might have changed from when this started....example...you no longer need quarters for the washing machines. Something's have been added or taken out. So add your favorite 10 things to bring.

OK - Read all of the tips & here are ours;
1. Over the door hanger to hang on the knob inside the bathroom. Got ours in the Target dollar section. It was small & perfect because I am a "product" girl!!! Perfect for hair stuff, brushes, lotions, etc...
2. Bathroom spray!! I LOVE my hubby, but not so much the after-potty stench! The solid ones just don't do the trick. But NOT Lysol for us (icky!!), we use the good smelling ones from Pier 1. Also good as a general room freshener...
3. Haven't seen this one yet; A small, sequined or sparkly make-up clutch. Perfect for KTTW card, wave phone, camera and a small mirror & lipstick. I am NOT a lanyard person - so this keeps everything handy & is still pretty, but smaller than a purse.
4. Power strip - just a small one, but it came in handy for charging the camera nightly & our phones before disembarking.
5. Ziplocs for wet/icky stuff & general use.
6. Pre-packaged candy, crackers, salty snacks, etc. for a special Thank-You gift along with PLENTY of cash for tips!
7. Club soda (my drink of choice!), and any alcoholic beverages that we will want.
8. A French press & ground French Roast coffee beans. Creamer to go with. (Get hot water from room service!) Fresh coffee is my "thing". They do not have good brewed coffee onboard except at the Cove Cafe' & they are pricey!
9. Hair products!!! Flat iron if I want to wear my hair straight. Slip on diffuser if I want to wear my hair curly. The blow dryer in the room is good enough for me, but if I want good ringlet curls or no-frizz straight, it takes some work!
10. Work out wear!!! I love to GO spend time in the gym!! It is a great way to work off all of the delicious food! Plus when you use the gym, you get to use the (larger than your stateroom) spa showers, lounges, sauna, towels & robes!!! Plus they will give you free fruit, water & tea. Awesome!!!

Ok, this is just MY tip and PLEASE do not thrash me because of it. There ARE smokers on these cruises, like it or not!!

Verandah Smokers - Bring your own ashtray. There is an ashtray on the balcony BUT.... it is affixed to the wall and up high. So if you want to sit down and enjoy your morning coffee and a cigarette, it is a pain to have to get up and down to flick your ash. PLUS there are people under and beside you that would rather not have your ashes all over their verandah!

Not only can you get towels for the beach/pool, but the Spa will loan you one of their luxurious robes. You can use it all cruise long & just return it in your stateroom!

Sounds like a good reason to visit the spa!

I second this request! My boyfriend and I are going on our first Disney cruise to Alaska next May. Any specific things to bring on this cruise would be much appricated!

Thank you thank you from another fellow OCD packer...was up much too late reading this thread yesterday and made (another!) trip to the store to pick up some of the suggestions that I read.

OK, I have got one of my own that I don't think has been mentioned: I bought some of those white plastic hooks that are fixed to the wall/door with the white adhesive strip. The hook holds up to 7 lbs and won't damage the paint or wall when it comes off. I am thinking of using it for my just-bought laundry hampers and just-bought shoe organizer.

My mom always brings the 3M hooks that are safe for walls. She used them to hang swim suits, lanyards, pjs, etc...it was a great idea!!
I always bring room spray too. I spray it when we leave the room and when we return, it smells fantastic!

I must bring the over the door shoe holder. It holds everything from toiletries to jewelry to flipflops! Whatever small things you dont want rolling around or getting lost.

Other things"
a fan
drink mug
candy for movies
