Thin hard plastic boxes are available in the scrapbooking department to hold pages while you are working on them or for storage. I used one to hold all our door decorations and other such treasures (placemat from Animator's done on "Fantasy") I didn't want mangled in the suitcase.. You can get a 12 x 12 size that would easily hold a photo mat to be signed.

If time permits Stuart Cove has a snorkel with sharks excursion. We did it last summer. I was simply amazing. It is on the other side of the island though, so timing is critical. I can't post a link yet but go to craigmDOTsmugmugDOTcom and check out the Bahamian Cruise - July 2012 in the Vacation section.

Cheers

We were just on the 4 day Bahamian cruise Mar 31 - Apr 4th and they allowed us to give 2 photo mats for signatures (we had two kids in our room). I asked for 2 big photo mats (I had the sandwiched between cardboard for protection).

Do the signatures come off the cups when washed?

I have never had one signed by characters, but I have sent Tervis tumblers with my kids to camp with their name on them in Sharpie and after going through the dishwasher the name is faded. I have to rewrite them about ever 3-4 goes through the dishwasher. If you hand wash my guess is the signatures would last longer, but I can't say for sure.

We were just in WDW for 10 days in November so we are using the one day as a chance to enjoy some of our favorites.

Wow... It took me the better part of a week, but I've read all 98 pages! It was well worth it! I've learned so much and can't wait till we cruise this summer!

For character signatures, I plan to paint a 12 x 12 canvas a light pink and have all the princesses sign it. Then hang it in my daughter's bedroom I may do another one that is just white and have all the characters sign in colorful markers...

Something that people may not know is that you cannot sign up for the 5K on CC before the cruise. If they do have it (chances are they will ), you'll see it in the navigator and will have to meet somewhere the morning of to register. You can also buy 5K t-shirts afterwards on CC

Thank you for such a wonderful idea. My friend's daughter has cancer and absolutely loves the Disney princesses. I wanted to bring her back something special that was signed. A pink canvas will be perfect!
