I was looking at the app this morning. So, I downloaded it. Then, I couldn't find the 12-night Med Cruise 2013.

I was so bummed!

They seem to always have the large vinylmation for sale in the onboard shop. Bring your own colorful Sharpies. It takes up a lot of luggage space when bringing it home.

Could I bother you to check the app for my cruise for me? I'm going on the Fantasy June 30, 2012.

Thanks!!

Yes June 30th is on there! The best thing I like is it gives you a detailed map of each deck! And most features can be used on airplane mode!

Tip: if you have Verizon you will have service while in San Juan!!!!

Great Tip I had been planning to order room service the night before our Early Excursion day plus coffee ... but hadn't remembered about the disemarkment day. Thanks, First Cruise and my husband thinks I'm nutz to be doing all this research so early but we travel in April!

Would it be pushing if We did both the pillowcase and the Frame??? I thought the kids would like the pillowcase idea so I have that packed. But for my husband and I like the frame Idea, especially if we get a really good family photo on board to put in it.

That is SO Great, I was wondering about T-Shirts and was about to ask. I think the kids would get a kick out a large night-time T-shirt that can be used for a long time ... Was going to ask though, if I get a plain White T-shirt (Micheals) and put the Name and Date of the Cruise on One side would they still autograph it?

You are allowed to request one item per person, up to 4 per stateroom, I believe. Doesn't matter the mix of stuff. We had pillowcases, T-shirts & a frame. Just make sure to LABEL clearly your stateroom, include the pens & be nice to the CM's and send treats!!

You are allowed two items per stateroom on the Dream.

There were 3 of us and we had 3 mats and 2 pillowcases done. I think as long as you don't go crazy there won't be any problem. I did have mine in 2 separate ziploc bags as I had Sharpies for the photo mat and fabric markers for the pillowcases (and I put candy in each bag).

No. There can be stuff on them. Our pillowcases were personalized with cruise and date.
