What is your fav. Souvenir you got on a cruise

Recommended Posts

My favorite is a pouch of stones from a Mykonos Beach. The stones look like ordinary pebbles and a small piece of clay pot. It's a small collection and I love them because ONLY I know they come from a beach in Mykonos. Otherwise, the 'normal' souvenirs? Magnets for my fridge and coffee cups, Key chains. Small trinkets.

Some of my favorites are...

- Pictures of doors, cats, dogs, turtle, birds, lizards, snake, door knobs, door knockers, shutters, flowers, architectural details, bridges, metal postal boxes, signs, food...

- A slate with an etching of things specific to Belize - animals, places, history and more.

- A mask purchased in Venice.

My favourite are ships models and postcards.

 

By the way: I publish my own postcards (to promote my cruise blog), with ten already published (QE2, QM2, Pullmantur R5 Blue Dream and Sovereign, The World, MSC Armonia, MSC Preziosa, MSC Meraviglia, Costa Victoria and Costa Favolosa) and two new going to the printshop (Celebrity Infinity and Silver Muse).

 

Is there any other postcard collector here? :-)

One favourite of mine is a ship's cap from a Yangtze River cruise. Good memories of our

land/cruise vacation to China & Southeast Asia.

My wife favours a lace tablecloth purchased in Madeira on our very first cruise aboard the TS Atlas in 1987, a transatlantic crossing.

I always try to get a post card and local currency from places I visit. My favorite souvenirs however, are the photos I capture.

Cruise ship models would be my favorite. Although, none were available on my first cruise (the now-scrapped Regal Empress), sadly, and Celebrity Infinity was sold out on my sailing, so I had to make do with a small Infinity-shaped Christmas ornament.

For my 50th birthday I cruised and one of the stops was St. Thomas. My grandson Thomas was only a few months old at the time so I came home with a ton of "St. Thomas" branded things for EVERYONE in the extended family. The baby loved his stuffed turtle. Every trip since then has resulted in another turtle of some sort for him. His favorite is the Jamaican Turtle with dreadlocks and a rasta hat.

 

I bought a simple $2 woven Jamaican anklet braclet that is tied on for my cruise to mark my divorce becoming final. I wear it everyday. I'm still wearing it a year later later. It hasn't faded nor has it come undone. I have a back up in my desk drawer. Every time I look down it reminds me to simply keep putting one foot in front of the other.
