Ship Models

I am not sure if Carnival ever made a model of the Festivale, but I have seen the ship in 1:1250 scale, which would make the model about 7.5 inches long. The same modeler who made the Mardi Gras above has also modeled the Festivale. I would suggest emailing him and asking if he has any Festivales in stock, or if he can produce one for you.

Yeah, I saw that Oasis model on eBay, which ended at $182 (and I saw the current auction). I know what the retail is, and I'm willing to pay a little more, but not a whole lot more.

 

I picked up a Disney Dream which came attached to a black base - $32.95. However, I noticed in the ship's store a first edition model, better detailed, with a lighter-color wood base as well as with lights - for close to $200 :eek:

 

I like the models and mementos, but not that much. But then again, Dream has the $75 pp specialty restaurant (and which I didn't partake from either.)

I just can't get over how much they (Oasis models) are selling for on Ebay - unbelievable! It makes me wonder if they are hard to get while actually on the ship.

 

I was able to get both Carnival's Miracle and Glory for $19.99 early last year because there were no other bidders and I won those auctions. I was also able to get Royal Caribbean's Rhapsody of the Seas for $54.00 listed as a "Buy it Now". I thought that was a little pricey at the time, but I'm glad I was able to get it because I haven't seen a Rhapsody model since. I like the ships too, but like you, not for that much. Hope you are able to get one, at a reasonable price, soon. I know one thing, after seeing these prices on Ebay, next time I get a chance to cruise, I will be getting a ship model, on the ship, as soon as I can after boarding.

Which is why one of the things I did when the stores opened on Disney Dream was grab a ship model.

 

In 2010, they had stacks of the Oasis model, at about $50 (I think may have been discounted to $35.) Because of its size, it was a HUGE model. (The size was the discouraging factor since I don't have the space to display my ships - some of them are still boxed or wrapped up and in totes.) I'm willing to go to $75, maybe $100 but that's it.

 

I mean, I have the Christmas ornament (about the size of the ships sold on Princess cruises), so it's not like I'm lacking Oasis. And unless I want to shell out big bucks for a Princess ship that's sold off-board, not all the models I have are gonna be the same size.

 

Just would be nice to have the "regular sized" Oasis model, that's all. And I was able to pick up Disney Wonder after the fact, so I just have to patient.

It was the "size" factor that discouraged me from purchasing the Glory model while on board, but not for lack of display space since we've only been on four cruises. :) When we were on Glory and saw the models, I decided against it due to the airlines luggage weight limit of 50 pounds for checked luggage. Seeing as how some of the ship models are hard to come by or very expensive to get after the fact, I'll take that into consideration when packing for our next cruise (whenever that may be) so I can buy one on board without going over that 50 pounds.

I forget which ship we were on, but in the laundry room was a box where people could put clothes they wanted to donate. Not saying you should toss out your clothes and pack ship models in its place, but it's real tempting considering the aftermarket prices for those models... :D

 

I may have mentioned it here, but there was a Disney Dream 'first edition' with a different base and lights that went for about $200 on ship. Can't wait to see what that goes for on eBay.

Thank you again - I just ordered a Festivale from your ebay shop the other day, so now my collection will finally be complete. So glad you reissued the Festivale and thanks also for listing it as "buy it now", as I haven't had much luck in the bidding auctions in the past. :) We cruised on Festivale (our first cruise) in 1992 for our honeymoon and we have many happy memories of our Festivale cruise.

With the arrival of my Festivale model from artenautica the other day, my ship model collection of models of cruise ships I've been on is now complete, until our next cruise - whenever that may be. :)

 

Artenautica: Thank you very much for reissuing - beautiful ship & looks exactly like Festivale did, except a lot smaller. :) It looks like a lot of time goes into making them. It is now on our family room wall unit shelf alongside Carnival's Miracle & Glory and Royal Caribbean's Rhapsody of the Seas models.

 

Modelman: A special thank you to you too. Not only did you let me know where I could get a Festivale model but a "little birdy" also told me that it was your idea - thank you. :)

Is anyone sailing that can pick me up the Sky model? It was my first cruise and didn't know about the models and can't find one anywhere.

If so I'll reimburse you with interest if you wish. Thanks.

New to the boards here but not new to cruising. I am looking for a ship model from my very first cruise in 2004 from the Carnival Celebration. If anyone has one please let me know.

 

Thanks,

Thanks to the very kind help of a member here, I have a model of the Oasis - timely since we now have a house and a place to put the ship models in. (Although, Oasis will most likely go in the spare bedroom/office, since there's no more room in the curio cabinet!)

 

With the exception of Discovery Sun, I now have all the models of ships I've been on. Maybe I'll start working on the ships my wife has been on, since we have one of those models. :D (Interestingly enough, although the two look identical save for a RCL banner on the starboard side of one of them, the Voyager of the Seas model is heavier that the Mariner of the Seas. Different materials for the model?)

 

Or perhaps finding a model of the ship her paternal grandfather and grandmother was on....

 

*sigh* This never ends, does it?

Here's my small, yet growing collection of models that you purchase on board:

attachment.php?attachmentid=237192&d=1340168448

From Top to Bottom: Caribbean Princess, Royal Princess, Tahitian Princess & Regal Princess.

 

I didn't start collecting till after my Carnival cruise, so I'm searching for that one, as well as any others. Ironically I got my two R-Class models on the Caribbean Princess for abut $6 or so! Regal Princess I got on e-bay for about $19.99, I remember the seller telling me he also had the old Royal Princess model, and I think the old Island Princess, I just can't remember which seller though....
