Gift Ideas for Family Cruise

Recommended Posts

We are cruising in July of this year to celebrate our 18 year old granddaughter's high school graduation.  It will be us, the grandparents (both 64), son, son, and daughter-in-law (all 40-ish) the graduate, and her little cousin, who will be three.  I would like to get everyone a gift to celebrate the trip.  Older granddaughter may be embarrassed by something that calls attention to her (or might be considered "lame"), like a t-shirt with her name on it.  Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Nothing could be more of a surprise than a suite, but in terms of budget, that may not be viable. Book her a steakhouse dinner if you can afford to, and I will try to come up with more suggestions later. You would get more responses if you posted this on the Carnival (or whichever cruise line) category.

Sorry if  I wasn't clear  -  l am looking for a gift for each person to commemorate the cruise - not a gift for the graduate - the cruise itself is her gift!

What specifically does your daughter enjoy? I would give Carnival Branded Gift Bags filled with various gift cards, t-shirts and maybe something she likes.

I never think it's a good idea to put a child's name on any clothing where it can be seen.

 

As far as "commemorating" this event....photos are always great...but that would be for AFTER the cruise.

What about a monogrammed yeti cup that everyone can use on the cruise, and then again at home?

I would buy everyone their own lanyard! Super useful to carry their keycard around on the boat and a nice memento once they get home. Not sure if you're soda drinkers, but if you purchase the drink package for everyone, they'll each get their own tumbler which they get to keep. Might be pretty expensive for such a large group, though.

pictures, beach towel, key ring, insulated cup, string bag, sun hat.  You could take your own pictures throughout the cruise and make a book for everyone.
