Well... on my first cruise on the Carnival Fascination in 1995 I fancied my waiter, so I married him! January 1st will be our 14th anniversary! But that's kind of a one-time souvenier, you know, so ever since then I have brought home a mug from each ship I've been on.

We always get shot glasses, fridge magnets and the Christmas tree ornaments. That way anytime I am making a drink or getting something from the fridge I am reminded of my wonderful vacations. We also love to hang the ornaments while decorating the Christmas tree. Its a good reminder of how blessed we are.

Christmas tree ornaments and fridge magnets. Every now and then I will also purchase a ball cap with the ship name on it.

We also seem to collect a lot of the plastic 'drink of the day' glasses. It just happens.

The alcohol prices on ship on our last cruise went up after we left our last port (last chance to buy in port). I thought I would buy alcohol early this time, but the tee shirts etc. are cheaper on the last day.

We have seven types of ship, sitting on my entertainment center. My husband bought one, when we in the new boat. It is actually a neat to see that every thought of memories.

Ive been getting 1 of each style 8 oz glass mugs with ships name on side. I think I have all except mabie 2 ships, back then I didnt think about collecting when i started cruising. Didnt think I would be on 18 of them. . Below are pics of glasses. Only need a proper display case. I also have a stack of SS cards.. I guess Once I get 52 of them, would that make a legal deck of cards? . remember back in the days when you got a poster of the ship on the last night at dinner?.. I have a bunch of those as well.

Ship pins were nice, but I usually just get a key chain from every port.

Just got off the ship and had a great time. We always purchase the tree ornaments shaped like ships or sometimes they are thin gold overlay ornaments for our neon blue christmas tree that we keep up year round. It's neon blue to remind us of the blue waters at each port. I think my favorite place so far on any cruise has been the private island of CoCoCay!

Mainly shot glasses. Our family has a tradition that our family started was collecting the photo of when you get on the ship for the first time. As well as one of the pictures from the formal night with the leather cover.

Both me and DW get a t-shirt from every ship. Pluse we have magent of eachship we have been on aswell as one from every port we have gone to on the fridge. Everything works out someday the magents will help us lose weight(the door to the fridge will be too heavy to open.)
