Do you collect memorablia of Cruise Ships and such? - Care to share?


Recommended Posts

I collect the ship models that they sell onboard. Well, not just of ships I've been on, but whenever someone I know cruises, I get them to get me a model of the ship.

So far I have...

Allure of the Seas

Oasis of the Seas

Liberty of the Seas

Independence of the Seas

Voyager of the Seas

Radiance of the Seas

Jewel of the Seas

Majesty of the Seas

Pacific Dawn

Pacific Pearl

Pacific Jewel

Pacific Sun

Pacific Sky

Pacific Star

Dawn Princess

Sea Princess

Island Princess

Queen Mary 2

Carnival Spirit

and I also have an SS Canberra diecast model which I got from ebay. I love my ship models and have them displayed in a glass display case. I am always looking for more and am hoping to collect the entire RCI and Celebrity fleets. :)

We collect Christmas Ornaments from the ships. We've been collecting ornaments for about 20 years from all our travels. Its nice to only bring them out for Christmas...unpacking brings back memories and nice to share with friends and family over the season but then packing them back away again.

I have been collecting Royal Caribbean stuff for 25 years. My best item is a flag flown on Enchantment of thevSeas first Caribbean sailing. Given to me by Captain Svein Petterson.i also have complete sets of inaugural sailing plates from a Vision, Voyager, Freedom and Oasis class. And a 14 kg service award ring with the crown and anchor under the stone.

When my son was five he was fascinated with a big casino slot token my dad had brought home from Atlantic city. To my sons delight, my father gave it to him. My father passed away suddenly a short while later and my son was utterly devastated. He clung to his " big penny" day in and day out, even sleeping with it in his hand. A few months later my husband and I went on our first cruise and brought my son home a casino slot token from the ship. In the last 20 years we have been on 30 + cruises and have brought my son back a token from each ship along with other tokens from ports around the world. Unfortunately, with the new casino machines ours we don't always get to do this anymore :(

I collect the ship models so I know you can buy the Celebrity Equinox model onboard the ship.

My first cruise was on a Cunard ship .They changed menus for dinner every night and we had the option of taking the menus .I took 7 home. On my next cruise ,on a Carnival ship I was not able to do that .Instead I kept the dailies and have kept them from every cruise I've been on to date.

I sailed as a child with my Father to and from Australia to U.K. on P & O's Himalaya in 1955/56. As a result I have several menus, children's party programs and various competition programs.

 

I have collected various items of P & O collectibles, including a silver spoon and brass bell off the Himalaya and a bottle opener from the Oronsay:)

Hi,

I'm new here and this is my first post. I have been cruising for many years and I collect ashtrays from the ships. I have close to 60 ashtrays. Now-a-days they are very hard to come by.
