Any Free souveniers on the dream?

Are there any free souveniers you get on your cruise like magnets or something? Also will the employees notice anything if you take a towel for souvenier or any of the books or whatever is on the desk in your room?

While the cruisefare is inclusive of a lot of things (meals, sodas at the drink station, shows) taking the towels and such are not part of what you already paid for. There will be extra charges for those things. If you're DVC, you'll get a magnet on your door. Sometimes (on Pirate night) we've gotten temporary tattoos from the DVC desk.

Folks even try to take the cloth laundry bag from the closet and are surprised when their shipboard account is charged $10.00. Don't take the towels, books or laundry bag, you will be charged. Inventory is taken after each guest leaves the cabin.

First, don't steal.

Second, even if you do, all you are getting is a plain white bath towel. Nothing special IIRC. The only book I remember in the room was the book with the room service menu and ship info. What would you even do with that? There were a few postcards in the drawer you can have.

Third, don't steal.

The towels are purposely plain white with no cruise line logo on it -- because too many people would take that as souvenier. There is one book in the room but please leave it there -- it has the room service menu and other information and we have been in rooms where it was missing and it was difficult to get another copy. So while some family had a book they stashed away and probably never looked at (it's mostly ads anyway), we and I'm sure several families after us in the same staterooms didn't have the information that was in there.

There are a couple of postcards in the desk. If you really need something free -- take them. But generally, this is Disney. They don't like giving anything away.

Really? You think a bunch of DCL lovers will condone stealing?

In the desk there are usually 2 postcards. There used to be a couple sheets of letter writing paper. You can have these....and any soap or shampoo/conditioner that is left in your container. As noted, DVC members will get a magnet on their door. Anyone can stop by the DVC desk on pirate night for a free temporary tattoo. And at the end of the cruise they will slide a free sheet of paper under your door, but it has a bunch of printing on it!

As others have noted, you will be charged for anything that is missing from your stateroom. The decorative pillow on your bed can be purchased in the gift shop for $200!

Postcards in the desk (which I really like...love the look of them), and on Pirate Night you will each receive a bandana. The bandanas are red, say "Pirates In The Caribbean" and have Pirate Mickey on them.

You are also given a tube of nice shampoo, conditioner and body lotion. They come with the room. Sometimes, if you ask nicely, you can extras from the stateroom host.

Agreed with everyone else... Don't steal anything from the room, it will cost you! On our first cruise the stateroom host gave us an extra tube of lotion during the middle of the cruise after it was mentioned how much my DW liked it, and on our last night she put a complete set of shampoo, conditioner and lotion on the bed for us to take home. It is really nice stuff!

You are free to take as many memories as you like but you must pay for everything else! Do guests come to your house and take things? If they do you need to find new guests!

There's usually a pen in the drawer that you can take, too. Oh, and for anyone who loved the adorable butter knife in Animator's Pallette, they're for sale now!

You paid for your room, meals and some entertainment. Not towels or anything else. They know because they do inventory at the end of each cruise.
