I think way back when there were a few items that someone handled for the site, but it never took off...Who knows, may-be they will sell some more stuff someday, the typical t-shirts, hats, etc.

Henry,

If you come with me on the Carnival Breeze in two weeks you can have one, or two of these flashlight pens. They are actually pretty neat. Plus I also have highlighter/pen combos and "post it" notes for everyone.



Sorry for the poor quality picture. I just quickly took it with my phone.

Take care,
Mike

Some day I may do a Cruisemates cruise but not this month .

My next cruise is in July
(I assume you had to order at least 1000 pens but paid about 4 cents for each ) ?

Gee Mike...since I'm on that cruise, can I get one of those (please, please, please) even though I am not part of the CruiseMates group

I'd bring the highlighter pens you sent for the last CM group, but I left them in Arizona.

I'll trade you a CruiseMates passport holder/lanyard for a flashlight pen though.

Kuki,

I'll give you three pens if you are one of the objects in the scavenger hunt. The first team to bring Kuki back to the sushi bar wins.

I also have highlighter pens and currency converter calculators for the group.

The flashlight pens are actually pretty neat. I've used them quite a bit around the house and they're good for cabins, especially inside cabins, and actually quite bright. The hard part has been keeping my family from stealing them.

Take care,
Mike

From 1994 to 2006 a friend of mine had a wholesale pens business .He paid the manufacturer 1/4 of a penny per pen and sold them in bulk for 4 cents each .

Henry,

I too have a friend in the "pens and logo business". That's who I bought them from. His business also makes a lot of NFL merchandise. I imagine that a straight Bic type pen may be under .05 but these are a little more expensive.

Take care,
Mike

The pens are a great idea! I never seem to have a little light when I need one. Besides, if the ship ever wrecks..nice to have in case of emergency! **Picturing one of the cruisemates bobbing in the water flashing cruisemates penlight in order to be rescued**
