Smile Send a Gift to someone onboard?

Is it possible to send a gift (shipboard credit, a spa treatment, an excursion, etc.) to someone onboard the Caribbean Princess from someone not sailing on that cruise?

Thanks much!

Yes you can. We just did this a few weeks ago for our friends. Call Princess directly (1800princess)and talk to a rep. They can take the order over the phone and charge your credit card. Request them to send you an e-mail confirmation of the purchase. You will need to know the Ship name, departure date & last & frist name of passengers.

I also learned from the rep that you can send place an order even after the start of their cruise.

Do it ahead of time. Tried to order something for my father and they would not take it within a week of sailing. 1-800-PRINCESS

Sounds like a good idea. Is this how TAs send gifts or did they use a service?

Not to be too corny......but, I love when I arrive at my cabin and there's a gift waiting for me.

Once, it was basket of fruit.
Once, it was chips and salsa
Once, it was stuffed animals
Once, it was "Happy Birthday" banner/room decor. and cake
Once, it was flowers
Once, it was canapes
Many times it's wine and a cheese plate

No matter what you order, there's plenty of it.

Me too. I used to order the kids the Princess teddy bears - but it loses a lot when the kids just get a gift card to come down to the gift shop and pick it out - so now I just take them and let them pick something special out. Somehow not the same for a 10 YO or younger.

We prearranged to have flowers and a certificate for the Ultimate Balcony Breakfast delivered to my in-laws on their Island Princess cruise last year. I did it over the phone with Princess Customer Service and they were very helpful. The flowers and envelope containing the certificate were in the cabin waiting for them when they arrived at their stateroom.
