Depending on your cruise, dgs reads a book about one or more of the ports and has it signed. We will be taking " Pinnochio " on the Med cruise this summer. He is collecting quite a collection!

This is a great thread -- especially love the photos of the signed items!

If you give them colored pens, will the characters pick "their" colors?

And I have read about leaving a thank-you bag of treats with the pens and item to be signed -- any other tips? I've never done this despite being on many DCL cruises, so I am excited to have this as something new for this cruise.

I have read:
Photo mats, valmations, tshirts, canvas bags....

The other thing I thought of is buying a cruise photo album & having them sign the inside cover.. Or the cover depending?!?!

What else have soe gotten signed?

hats, backpacks, totes, lunch boxes, pillowcases

someone recently posted a photo of a picture mat she had signed - the mat was black and she used silver Sharpies, it looked AMAZING and I'm guessing matched her decor.

Here is our photo mat. I think it turned out wonderful! I bought a pack of 24 sharpies on Amazon and put that in a zip lock bag with a bag of Hershey's Kisses. The photo mat and frame are 11 x 14 and holds an 8 x 10 photo. I got it at Target for $20 I believe. Was a little tricky keeping it from getting smooshed in my luggage and I actually had to go up another size just to fit the darn thing in...but it was WELL worth it!

Word of warning about the candy to bring.

A couple years back I packed a bunch of Hershy stuff to give to them. It was hot in Florida and somehow on the plane - airport - trunk of car - they all melted.

I bring twizzlers and hard candy now.
