I always use a lanyard. Usually my Disney Cruiseline one, which seems to be the most durable and has a plastic sleeve for the card. Check in your ship's gift shop once onboard as most cruiselines sell them.

 

Have fun!

I've got a couple of divers wallets, waterproof and wear it around my neck. Keeps my S&S card, drivers license, credit card, etc for port too. tuck it under my shirt and don't have to carry a purse. Works great!

Go to the purser desk and they will punch a hole in it for you. Using a landyard

you can buy on ship (But they are poor quality), or in every port for 3 or 4

buck. When we go into port I tie the landyard around a belt loop and put

it in my pocket. If I will be at the beach type activity I put it in a water

proof dive 'wallets'.

I just got back from the first cruise, but thanks to this board, I knew what to expect every step of the way. :)

 

Anyway, I combed Galveston looking for a lanyard. Finally, I was directed to Office Depot, where I found a nice beaded one. Apparently, I was supposed to buy the clip that goes with it where you can just slip the card into the protective plastic, but being of a frugal nature, I declined. Instead, I went to the casino and had them punch a hole in my Sail and Sign. It worked great!

 

(By the way, everytime I mentioned the word "lanyard", no matter my audience, I had to explain the definition. Odd.)

On board or off the ship I use a bracelet mate:

It holds my seapass card, credit card, money, driver's license etc. Just do a search for "bracelet Mate' and you will find the link.

I have always used a lanyard. In addition to the free ones in the casino, there are some sold in the gift shop for about $5. However, for our last cruise, I bought a pretty beaded lanyard in the Hallmark store and it had a plastic card holder attached. It's the only way to go so that your hands are free for taking pictures, etc. and not having to worry about your S&S card falling out of your pocket. Travelgirl

Note that Princess has begun collecting the cruise cards upon disembarking the ships. It might not be long that Carnival might be doing likewise. If you collect you cards as a souvenir be warned to misplace yours before the last day.

To address the issue of poor quality lanyards available on board ships

please know that Cruisecritic sells excellent-quality, durable lanyards!

 

I have one and can vouch for the quality.

 

Their Store http://www.cruisecritic.com/store/

offers all sorts of great other stuff, but the lanyard can be seen at

http://www.cruisecritic.com/store/product.cfm?ID=15

although I opted to get mine via their Cruisecritic Member Pack which included it!

That's at... http://www.cruisecritic.com/store/product.cfm?ID=16

 

So go have a look around the CC Store.

They offer quality stuff -I have several of their items! ;)

To the kind lady who generously offered her cruise-cards..

I'll be emailing you shortly.

 

 

Lately, I've added cruise-cards to my list of Things I Collect :eek:

and have gathered quite a few from friends locally!

Amazing is the variation and design changes every few years.

 

I've looked around the Memorabilia section

but there seems to be little interest in collecting cruise-cards

aside from each person keeping his/her cards as memorabilia...

 

 

 

Anyone of like mind out there might like to make contact?

I really liked having a lanyard with a plastic card sleeve instead of getting a hole punched in the card. That way I could keep the small day's schedule and a small map of the ship in the sleeve as well (swimsuit + sarong = no pockets for that stuff). Plus that way my Sign and Sail card stayed intact for my scrapbook instead of having an ugly hole in it.
