Hi Mary

All clients currently booked with Dreams Unlimited Travel on any 7-night sailing out of Port Canaveral will receive our gift bag. It doesn't matter if your reservation was a 'direct booking' (initiated originally with Dreams Unlimited Travel) or it came to us after it was booked by you (i.e. a transfer)

So, in your case you would definately receive one. If you have more than one stateroom booked it will be one per stateroom.

John

Right now we're in a test phase with these bags so we are limiting them just to 7-night sailings out of Port Canaveral. We are looking into the logistics of putting them in every stateroom on every sailing for every DU client, it just may take us a while to get there.

Can anyone tell me what is in the basket????
I'm reluctant to give you a "list" of what's in the bag simply because each will be customized to the people traveling in the room. For example those traveling with kids will get different items then adults traveling without kids, etc.

We discuss the gift bags on this weeks DISUnplugged Podcast -podcast.wdwinfo.com - if you don't want to listen to the whole show you can just listent to the 'News, Housekeeping. Rapid-Fire' segment as that's where Pete talks about the bags.

I can tell you that we really took some time and used our knowledge of Disney Cruise Line as well as feedback we've recieved from our clients over the years to pack it with what we feel are fun as well as useful items...things you wish you had, but didn't pack.

Some guesses I've seen here already are correct....re-useable drink mugs (hot and cold for adults, cold for kids), different colored highlighters so you can easily identify each family members activities in the navigator, a multi-plug extension cord because there are never enough plugs....and much more.

I really hope people find all of the items we've selected useful.

Wow! What an amazing gift!

We are booked with Kelsie too, and are so excited for our cruise, and now, we are equally excited to receive such a super generous gift.

And of course, thanks to Shirley for making such a lovely basket!

Thanks DU! Tiger

John - it sounds amazing, and you guys are very thoughtful to customize to who is in the room. Just another way that DU is giving us great service...thanks so much, and I can't wait to see what will be in MY room in September!!!

The first ones went in staterooms today - 5/5/2012.

We are very excited and anxiously await people's feedback when they get them!!!

they look amazing!!!!

what a wonderful welcome to the cruise!!!

i hope by the time my cruise rolls around in october, you'll have added 4 day cruisers to the fun!!!

I read the list to my husband, what I could see and what you just listed. His first comment on the hand sanitzer was "because you can never find hand sanitizer on DCL. " Our joke is how often we use the stuff on the ship, even though we just washed our hands we have it again when we enter the restaurants. When I read the part about the multiplug extension cord though he said "tell them they have a winner. That is a very useful item and a great idea!"

I like the bag that they items come in, you can never have too many bags! And whatever is included, we'll be thankful and not complain. It's a gift, and for a gift we say "thank you" and that's it. Looking forward to seeing ours in December! I was just thinking about Shirley today because we are taking our niece on this trip and will for the first time had a child along where we can order one of SHirley's amazing gift baskets that I've seen here for years. We usually order flowers from her but this trip I think I'm going to do the basket for my niece instead.

This is amazingly generous and makes me jealous that my next cruise is out of Barcelona and not Port Canaveral.

I'm sure Shirley would enjoy a few months in Barcelona, eh?

I do like that the traveller's best friend, Hand Sanitizer, is front and centre in that basket. I like the idea of a multi-plug too. I forgot mine on the last cruise and it was a pain trying to charge cameras and the phones (why do they only give you one charger for 2 phones?)

The idea behind including hand santizer is so that you can bring it with you when you leave the ship. We know it's available at every food station onboard and when you get back on the ship - but these travel size ones are great for brining with you on shore excursions or even just shopping in port.
