Recommended Posts

We cruised in April and really enjoyed the Make it with Michaels.  Was it still offered on your last cruise.  I am looking forward to participating again.

I saw Make it With Michael's two times during our 5 day cruise on the Valor. It was in the main lobby in the morning, if I were to guess they might be on the sea days. The Fun Times and or the Carnival Hub are very helpful to find out what's happening.

could someone please explain exactly what this is?

 

TIA

It is arts and crafts sponsored by Michael’s and run by the fun squad. We had three different crafts (one for each sea day). First were cabin door decorations, second was a art competition about the ship, and the third was cards.

Thank you for the response. I was wondering if they did some scrapbooking which doesn't seem to be the case.

 

Thanks again

It was offered on the Fantasy as well. My 7 and 9 year old begged to attend. Go figure.

Yes, on the Breeze but we were told they ran out of supplies about 1 minute after start time. Disappointed!

So I take it that this event is geared more towards youth?

My wife is into crafts and stuff.  I have to endure a spin through Michaels or Hobby Lobby every now and then.

On the 18 seas days recently on the Splendor to Singapore, it sure was. The first sea day we got journals. Sea days after ports were usually just for writing in them, but you could add stamps and other things. Once word got out, the additional sea days got really busy for the other crafts, and people lined up 1/2 hour before they opened the doors. I think my fave was the seashell frame. They usually had crafts at 0900 and 1100.

On the last sea day, it was everything has to go. I picked up several stamps for the grandkids (ok, and maybe a couple for me).

I was on a recent 15 day cruise on the Legend.  They offered about 5 Creativity at Sea sessions,  but I don't think it was Michael's.  The crafts were geared more toward adults.

Creativity At Sea is much better than Make It With Michael's.  The Michael's crafts are usually just paper things.

We had it on our Journeys cruise on the Pride this month.

It is for whoever wants to participate.  Kids or adults.

We just were on the Imagination and they had it on the Sea Day there. Ours was wooden coasters, and then you could stamp an image onto the coaster, and color it with markers. They provided either felts or you could put magnets on the back instead.  If you have that available, make sure you wait to use it as a coaster until after you get home and seal the surface with some clear sealant first. Otherwise the ink will bleed everywhere. The staff member running it told us that, but obviously they can't provide spray shellac on a cruise ship to use. We thought it was fun and there was a big range of ages participating.

Is this free? You don't have to pay for the cost of supplies?

Ours was complimentary, but was just basic cards with stamps and markers available for use.
