Does anyone have more pictures that you can post? I'm thinking of placing an order this week but would love to see a few more baskets first.

thanks for all the ideas - I will be ordering things for our upcoming TA cruise - one very large snack bag with Dr. Peppers, Rootbeer, favorite candy for movies, etc. I do not want to have to haul it to the ship and while some of what I will ask for is available on the ship I like the fun of it all wrapped up an in our room when we get there.

The size bag we saw zipped up with the rest of the luggage - does that bag hold a lot? Can I do that as a family snack bag?

Also another question - can you get a gift that is in a non-see through wrapping? My son's birthday is 11 days into the cruise and I would like to do one for him but for his birthday - not a big one as we do not have lots of extra room but would still like to have him a birthday basket.

Our first baskets were so great and have not done them for the last 2 but this trip I will be making it up to Shirley . My husband's birthday is the day before we sail and this is the first birthday of his we have gotten to spend with him in about 3 years because he is in Iraq so I want to do a belated birthday baket for him full of his favorite snacks and fruit (do they sell YoHoo's down there?)

This is so great what she does. I need to find pictures of ours and post.

We have ordered from Shirley twice now( I have posted the pics)- and she definitely does great on the baskets!!! We will be ordering again in September- when we take my DD on a cruise for her 8th birthday. I wish she could deliver at DisneyWorld too!!

BTW- I love the Disney bags on the previous page- we want one of those next time Shirley!!

Jan 17 cruise baskets

We ordered two baskets. One with the tote that had a good amount of sand toys, princess coloring books, pez, princess cups, bubbles, snacks, and drinks (all princess themed). The other was all pirate themed for our 8 year old son. It had a Jack Sparrow hat, telescope, map, eye patch, cap, glow-in-the-dark necklaces, gold coins, snacks, drinks, tattoos, etc.

The kids thought they were great!

Our nieces are going in April and I need good ideas for an Easter basket for tweens and a teen.

I ordered our gift "baskets" /totes today from Shriley for our March 6 cruise. I had the pleasure of speaking with both Shirley and Melody. I told them a few things that I would like to have included and then told them to just throw in anything else in addition that they might think would be nice. I feel comfortable leaving things up to them for the most part. They seem very nice and I am impressed with how smoothly the order process was. I am anxious to see the gifts when we get on board. Thanks Shirley!!

I did not order mine until just a few days before we sailed. I got the medium sand buckets. They were so big and had lots of sand toys, these were much nicer than any we could have bought on board. We had Capri-Suns, Oreos, Goldfish, fruit snacks and of course, pirate stickers! I think Melody is who helped me and when I told her that DS was obsessed with pirates, she made the cards out from Capt. Jack Sparrow and some cute pirate lingo written on the cards. Very pleased with these! DH and dd were walking back from CC and some lady wanted to know where we got them on board and my DD said "my mommy had them sent to our room for us!" They LOVED them
