Shipping items ahead of time?

In my planning, I'm realizing all i want to bring is probably not going to fit in my luggage(we fly cross country for our cruise and we HATE checking baggage, so) Is there a way to ship a box to meet us at the ship? I'd like to pack things like gum for the CMs, snacks, maybe costumes for my girls and such that will be nice to have, but we may not have room for. I figure shipping a box even if I pay for priority shipping will be less than checking a bag.

Not sure how helpful these threads are, but this should get you started. Many folks mail packages to the ship. Feel free to ask away.

Here is some recent discussions.

But be aware that DCL says NO food items are to be shipped.

The specific rules and mailing address are listed in the FAQ sticky at the top of the boards. Please abide by the no food or liquids in the package and also note the maximum box size.

We've shipped a box before with no issues. I sent my FE gifts and sand toys and some other odds and ends ahead of time. No liquids-No food, like others stated.
