Thanks, I'll be 4 rooms down the secret deck 7 on my next cruise. Of course, I'll use it.

I need to ask: Barrie, Ontario?

Any other gift ideas?? Would love to give something to the people in the Oceaneers Club! Thanks!
In October we gave the tip envelope in with a bag of candies (chocolate, gum, etc.) to our serving crew. They seemed very excited and thanks us profusely. We did the whole team, including our head waiter. And we gave M &Ms to our room steward with the tip envelope. Then we gave a huge assortment of candy to the Oceaneer lab crew who made Dds trip so special.

I wouldnt feel comfortable doing a gift in place of the tip, it in addition to it.

A fellow Diser in our FE group was nice enough to print out some special magnets for us. (my printer broke) I brought streamers, some confetti, and tape and when we came back to our room our steward had the room decorated.
click picture for video:

The staff also came and sang Happy Birthday to her at dinner and in the gangway when we boarded the ship.

The Princesses are also very good about recognizing Birthdays. Click for video:

Yes they will do special things for your cruise. It is always good just to "remind" everyone that it is your honeymoon. Tell them when you check in, to your room steward, dinning etc.. It is just good that they are reminded although they most likely will know.

Congrats and enjoy your cruise!

ohh I just rememberd something we saved ... hope not a repeat... when you purchase something for the room or spa you get a typed message in a paper cruise frame...wallet sized...well they make great keepsake picture frames...they even have a backing to stand them up like a frame!
