Pin Trading on ships?

We are very seasoned WDW visitors and my kids love pin trading. In May, we will go on our first Disney Cruise!! Does the pin trading carry over to the cruise lines, or should we leave pins at home?

My son is also in love with pin trading. They do trade pins on the cruise. They have a special night where you can trade with some of the officers of the ship. So I would definitely bring their pins.

I also LOVE pin trading! I have found that cruises are better for trading than the parks! Bring them!

Absolutely. All the cast members in the shops, at guest services, and a few other places have lanyards with pins for trading. One night the ships officers were in the lobby to trade, and they were very generous.

I'd decorated my Fish Extender with pins and my host noticed, so gave me a really cute Minnie driving a car. They have special pins for the ships, and 'mystery' pins for sale in the shops.

We gave pins in our FE, and even got some back from the kids in trade.

Lots of fun.
