Anyone Collect Decks Of Cruise Line Playing Cards?


Recommended Posts

Anyone else like to get the souvenir decks in the gift shops on board cruise ships? I have I dunno how many, maybe over 100 decks (some are multiple duplicates though) I have maybe 4 boxes full of playing cards that I've bought or collected or were gifts. I have decks from:

Holland America, Cunard, Grace Line, Safmarine, Canadian Pacific, Princess, Royal Caribbean, NCL, Royal Cruise Line, Sitmar, P&O, Swedish American Line, Ellerman Line, Harisson Line, Moore-McCormack, Swedish Chicago Line, BC Ferries, Commodore Cruise Line, Celebrity, Nederland Line, Viking Line, Irish Ferries, Brittany Ferries, Maersk Lines, Blue Star Lines, Lamport & Holt, Shaw Savill Line, Matson, French Lines, Disney Cruise Lines, United States Lines, Greek Line, Sun Cruises, American President Lines, Oceania Cruises, DFDS Seaways, Norddeutscher Lloyd, Farrell Lines, Regency, Scotia Prince, MSC.

Some photos of the decks:

*The Sun Cruises deck is from the Sun Vista that caught fire and sank during a cruise in 1999, no deaths

* The Holland America deck is from between: 1929 - 1939

If you collect playing cards from cruise ships, what companies are your favorites? Some just have company logos and some have ships on them, what is your favorite decks you've bought on your cruise? Hope to see who like me, love to collect these nice decks of playing cards, a lot of mine are still sealed and never used, some are though, not played with, just that they've been opened.

Somewhere in my archives, there is a set of Royal Caribbean cards that I obtained on Nordic Prince in 1983 or 1984.  If my memory is correct, the cards only have the company's logo on them.  I don't recall any others that I have.

I have a couple of versions for Royal Caribbean, a couple under their original name *Royal Caribbean Cruise Line*, and the others just say *Royal Caribbean* see attached photos of the2 different era Royal Caribbean playing cards. If you want to see photos of any of the others, I'll be happy to share them if interested in seeing them. You'll see the two names the company went under it in these photos, including a 3rd deck which is a double deck. I have photos of all my decks, so like I said earlier, if want to see more photos, let me know and I'll be happy to share
