Do you bring home all the"things" the cruiselines give you while onboard? The daily papers, and, all announcements that the ships give you for this and that? It seems every time you return to the cabin, you have mail:-)
I am one of these people:-) I try to bring home any info that, will help in helping Cruisemates, but, I also collect the slick glossy magazines, that some of the islands put out, like St. Martin....they must cost a fortune!
So, if you bring it all home, do you scrapbook, toss it in a corner, Give it to another cruiser, sailing that ship soon, or just toss it out after a bit?
Trip, with her book & tea!

I bring all the daily capers. I throw out the ads. I keep luggage tags, excursion bracelets, tickets, etc. They all go into a scrapbook along with some of the pictures I've taken. I have a stack of stuff from our last cruise to be scrapbooked.

I bring it all home with me, it makes for great scrapbooks of all the wonderful memories. I too love to get the glossy island magazines and I often clip out the descriptions of the attractions and attach them to my pages.

We keep the capers from each cruise, though I don't know why. We've collected so many now I hate to throw them away. We don't take any of the glossy books from the cabins. We do keep shore excursion bracelets, name tags, etc. and put them in albums along the photos, etc. We keep the sail & sign cards too and use them in the albums.
I used to try to start at the front of the album with a copy of the cruise itin. from the doc booklet, followed by the sail/sign card, itin, etc. and then put the photos in order as we went to to the different islands. It's harder to do now that you don't get paper docs and have to print everything off the computer--just doesn't look as good as the old doc. info.The last couple of cruises we have been on I didn't even do an album--just put the photos on the computer and every now and then scan through them.
Trip, I too seem to bring most everything home with me. I put together a DVD of the cruise with pictures, scanned copies of the Capers, and anything I can put on it. It is so much easier to store a DVD than a big scrapbook. On cold snowy days here I can plop in a DVD of one of our cruises and get a warm fuzzy feeling.
