There is an annual litho done for concierge cabins. In addition, there is one done for most of the specialty cruises (14 nights, for instance).

Many are curious about the lithographs.
I always had questions, but was reluctant to ask.

So..... how about 1st person omniscient.

All concierge level cabins receive one. (Yes)
Is there a way to get one if not booked CL?
Do all cabins receive them? (No, unless unque cruise, CL)
How often do they change/differ? (annually if you lucky)
Are they unique per itinerary? (Yes)
Does everyone receive one on the specialty cruises? (Yes)
Does everyone receive them on normal itineraryies? (no)
Does CL on specialty cruise receive anything different than the usual, given to all?
If upgraded to CL do I get one? (Yes)
How large is the print? (our's was 16 X 20)
Is the size always the same?
Who is the artist?
How thick is the paper? (thick paper)
Is the artist always the same individual?
Has the artist always been the same over the decades?
Does the print come with a cover/case? (Our's came with a thick cardboard envelope 17 X 21, that was huge to handle, carry on only, oversize definitely, worked great, we placed our signed photo mats, and purchased photos in there.)
Why would I want a delicate item to debark? (For us - unique rare item, possibly never accessed again)
Does anyone get home with these large prints un damaged? (Yes, us, even with air fare.)
Can you say carry-on? Thankyou Jet Blue.
Do I really need one? (No)
Am I glad I got home with ours? (Yes)

CL; Concierge Level

I wonder how often they change them on regular sailings.
TIA
We sail concierge once a year. Over 8 years we twice received duplicates. I mentioned it to the concierge host and he was able to locate a unique one that I didn't have. They seem to keep some extras around in case of frequent cruisers.

We have the card that came with it behind the print inside the frame. Like others, conserving wall space.

I put ours in frame too, together with all the pins

I have filled in a few blanks for you. Don also does a litho for New Years and Christmas. Each cabin gets one. If you are lucky enough to have him on your cruise he will also sign them. Once in a while, you also get a chance to buy the originals or artist proofs at silent auction.

I was very disappointed to not get one on the second Hawaii cruise. We are going on a New Years 2013 -2014 cruise and I hope we get one on that cruise. (Fingers crossed)

Did they do one for the final inaugural cruise on the Dream? We'll be sailing on the final inaugural for the Fantasy (not CL) and I was wondering if our stateroom would have one.

Your lithographs look great. We only have one and just managed to get it framed today, after almost a year!

We got a set of Don Ducky Williams litho cards all of the refurb plans for this fall. We were not CL, but it was during our Magic cruise on the day they announced the upcoming refurb plans. Later the same cruise they had a presentation for the CMs from the brass when we were having a port day in Port Canaveral.

We were on the Dream two weeks ago and ours is 16x20 -- bigger than I expected. I haven't had a chance to have it framed yet.
