Default Sending Gift Basket

I hope someone can help. I am looking to send a gift basket to someone who will be cruising in May on the Carnival Valor out of Miami. I am not to excited about the gift baskets that are offered through Carnival. I remeber some time ago people sharing information about an outside company that they used to send gift baskets with liqour, but I lost the information. If anyone knows of any company that they recommend I would appricate the suggestions.

Thanks.

I love the Carnival fruit and wine basket. We used to get the Romance package, but we prefer this. It is just the perfect little treat.

I wouldn't think that a cruiseline would allow another company to place goods on the ship that didn't belong to the cruiselane.

Here's a list of companies that deliver gifts, including flowers, candies, wine...right to the passenger's cabin. I haven't personally used them, so I can't offer a recommendation.

Some cruiselines allow outside deliveries, some don't. I'd call Carnival and ask if they allow outside deliveries. I'm pretty sure they won't allow a gift basket with liquor inside. Wine, maybe.

I have used Well Wishers before, on the CarnivaL Legend and sent my husband a case of beer, Carnival did allow it, but charged !0.00 handling fee., to have it delivered to the room, it was still cheaper then spending
$ 5.50 / beer thru Carnival, and I did not have to lug it.
I would definately use them again.

That's a good idea, I'm going to see if my favorite gateway for flowers and gift baskets can handle this type of request

I dont think that its possible because of their rules...it also depends of the content of the basket
