Default birthday decorations

Has anyone every gotten the birthday decorations? Is it nice and worth the $$? My daughter will have a birthday when we are on the cruise - and I thought I would decorate and make it special (and also get the little cake).

I think that would be nice! When we got to our room the very first time, our travel agent had ordered chocolates to be delivered to us. Such a nice gesture.

Celebrate the birthday!

I'm anxious to see replies. We will be going with my parents, my mother will be celebrating her 60th while on board. I'm thinking out making some of those cute t-shirts you can order.

That would be awesome! There was a group of 40 on the ship who were celebrating an 80th birthday! How neat! That's something to celebrate.

They will decorate the cabin for you. Let the waiter know about her birthday and they will deliver a small cake to the table on her Bday, free.

cherylroy,

We didn't have the birthday decorations, but a few years ago our cabin was decorated with the "Bon Voyage" decorations. I am sure they are the same or similar. The cabin was decorated with streamers, banners, etc. There was a table decoration on the coffee table by the couch. In fact, there were decorations strung everywhere! All kinds of decorations were hanging from the ceiling! It was fun and festive. The casino manager had our cabin decorated, and also sent a fruit basket with candies and nuts which was great. We loved it. I have a picture of the cabin that I can email you if you are interested. Just pm me and I will try to find it tomorrow. We had taken the cruise to celebrate the birthday of one of our sons that was turning 18. He liked the decorations.

In fact, my parents went on a cruise last September, and our family had the same decorations ordered for their cabin. They loved it also. I think it is worth the $32 or whatever it is now.

On our cruise in April, my husband and I were celebrating our 32nd wedding anniversary and I ordered the chocolate anniversary cake as a surprise. I believe it was delivered to our cabin before we left the port on the first day of the cruise. I just ordered online, and it seems like they asked what day and when you would want it delivered. It tasted good. I would order it again for a special occasion. You can also have it delivered to the dining room at dinner one night.

I think your daughter would love both the cabin decorations and the cake. It would be a nice birthday surprise. I hope she has a wonderful birthday cruise.

Happy Cruising,

Sherrie

Both of my children had June Anniversaries and we had our family cruise in June so I ordered the Anniversary decorations for their rooms. Not wanting to feel left out, I ordered the Bon Voyage decoration for my room....lol. Yes, they are worth the money and the rooms looked so festive when we walked into them. We also each got 2 Carnival Cruiseline key chains with each room decoration which I thought was a nice bonus.

Yes worth the money. I had my parents decorated for their 50 Anniversary. They loved it.

If anyone is interested, we posted some pics of the "Bon Voyage" cabin decorations that were in our cabin on the Miracle. I am fairly sure the Anniversary and Birthday decorations are similar. Look in the Cruisemates Photo Gallery under Cabin Decorations, Sherrie, on August 27.
