LOOKING FOR GREAT GIFT IDEAS FOR THOSE CRUISERS ON YOUR GIFT LIST?

Need a great cruise gift or maybe you want some solid ideas to make your cruise experience even more enjoyable? We’ve curated a number of great items to help you make a splash!

Bon Voyage Ideas!

Our extended family has done some cruising and it is a family tradition to have a bottle of wine delivered to the cruisers stateroom as a bon voyage gift. That’s not a new idea with a tradition that goes way back to the era of those famous trans-Atlantic liners. Todays cruise lines are perfectly happy to help you keep that tradition alive.

The cruise lines want to make it as easy as possible for you, just check out their web sites. Take a look at Royal Caribbeans Bon Voyage Shop for some gift ideas. We’ve got a few ideas of our own and ours just might give you a bit more bang for your buck.

Onboard Gift Cards

One of our favorite cruise bon voyage gift ideas is to give them a Cruise Specific Gift Card for that upcoming cruise.

There’s no better bon voyage gift than an onboard gift card. After spending all that money on a cruise what could be a better gift than extra money to spend onboard. Save money on board by applying this gift card to the onboard cruise account! Use it for drinks, a special dinner or to take a land tour.

Gadgets & Helpful Ideas

Little things that make a big difference. These simple items come in handy when you cruise. After a couple of decades of cruising we’ve discovered a number of items that we think are worth their weight in gold. Nightlights, hooks, beach-towel clips and more.


There’s Never Enough Outlets

Most cruise ships have a pretty limited number of electric outlets and often they are difficult to use, especially with odd sized plugs like voltage converter plugs. Be prepared with a single device that provides three grounded outlets (125V/15A, Max 1875W)and three USB charging ports(3.1A Total) . It auto-detects charged devices to deliver optimum and fastest charging speed up to 5V/2.4A. Don’t cruise without this cube.

Some Ships Have Built-In Nightlights But Unfortunately Many Don’t – It’s Good To Be Prepared

These are great for cruising but also they’re a great travel accessory anywhere travelers go. From cruise staterooms to B&B stays, this will save a lot of stubbed toes and unnecessary middle of the night noise. Battery operated with charging by USB outlet they are motion activated. We put one on the bathroom counter wherever we travel.

Perfect For Family Cruising?

Know a family or group planning a cruise? Sometimes catching up with people onboard can be a hassle. From pools to cafe to buffets, spa and games, where are they? Cruising with children adds a whole other challenge with missed meetings and kids not checking in. Here’s an easy answer. Give them a set of walkie talkies.

Great Stocking Stuffers

Carrying your ship keycard (Seapass) on a lanyard is a convenient way to keep it handy. There are any number of clear cases available but this one has more style than any we’ve found. We also like that this one has a convenient pocket on the back that makes the card even more accessible. Order in pink, black or rose-gold.

Lots Of Fun To Be Had Lounging By The Pool

A packet of these little jewels are the perfect way to keep your towel clipped to your lounger while marking your space with bright tropical colors. No more towels sliding down just as you go to stretch out. Comes in packs of eight. They also come in real handy holding clothes to dry in your stateroom. Enough said…
