Default flowers and bar coupons

i am a soon to be new cruiser and my family wants to give me something special for my cruise. has anyone had flowers delivered to the room from gifts and services on the CARNIVAL SPIRIT. they and i would like to do it but am wondering how nice they are for the price. we have checked flower shops that deliver in the vancouver area and find them reasonable for the price untill you add on the tax, delivery fees and other charges. also is it better to get bar coupons ahead of time to save on gratuities. thanks to all
by the way i really like all the heplful information i am getting from this site. i am very excited and cant wait till sept of 2003 for the alaskan passage.

I didn't order flowers, but we did order some champagne and the canape tray from Carnival for the Spirit.

The canape tray was even lovlier than the picture, almost a work of art, with much more exotic ingredients, too. Absolutely fantastic. We were very happy.

Default I did the flowers...

2 dozen long stem red roses for our cruise on the Paradise in May. They were a big hit with my wife (we left on Mother's Day). The roses lasted pretty much the entire week.

Will definitely do them again on our next cruise!

Did the birthday gift on our last RCI cruise and was disappointed. The stale 6" square piece of cake and the hanging miniature "happy birthday" flags were not worth the price.

But this was not on your ship.

We received 2 gifts on our recent RCCL caribbean cruise and we loved them both. One was a beautiful tropical floral arrangement. I hated to leave it behind but you are not allowed to take them off of the ship (rules might be different for Alaska then for Caribbean). The second was a shipboard credit that was great because we could spend it anyway that we wanted to. I hope this helps!!

thanks everyone. it sounds like the flowers from the ship will be the way to go. my family is wonderful to think of me in this way and i know i will be happy with their choices. it sounds from the board that the cruise people do everything they can to make us guest as happy as possible. cant wait to go. dusty
