Default Do you wish that you could purchase Carnival ship cruise items after your cruise?

Do you wish that you could purchase Carnival ship cruise items after your cruise? I've always wondered if you could do that. After each cruise that we've been on, I've thought about I should have purchased that certain "T" shirt and or a hat from one of the ships. Or on one cruise I was going to purchase one of those porcelain models of the ship but forgot to. I do have quite a collection of the different ships "T" shirts, but one is getting a little old. Then one of my ship's hats is in very bad shape.
Wouldn't it be nice to be able to purchase different items from the Carnival ships that you've been on, online? Seams like they could make quite a bit of revenue and advertise this way.

For me, there is nothing I regret not purchasing. I am not a collector, so it makes it easier

As the days flies by, things do get limited. On the Magic, I heard someone saying, all the pretty bottle stoppers were gone,and the sizes in the kids tee shirts I needed for my grandkids were dwindling for sure.

I think a run of the shops when the shops first open, taking in all you might want is a good idea. Buying the next day is a better idea, getting what you need, with a possible exchange gladly made.

I do think the after shop though, could be a good revenue idea,and make many happy

I loved the shops on the Celebrity Eclipse...very different from the usual merchandise.

When we cruised aboard the M.S. Carnival Liberty. The ship's store was out of almost everything. They were sold out of the most common souvenir items from the last cruise. The crew's shop keeper told us that their shipment failed to arrive. So needless to say...I wish that I could purchase some of those common souvenier items now.

Oh that's a shame. When I sailed the Liberty, we had a stop in Grand Turks, there, the Carnival shop, within the shopping area, & it was filled with Carnival merchandise.

Not getting restocked, must really have hurt their bottom line that cruise.

Usually some of the pictures they took of us, but due to the cost, we have to be selective.

John Heald had this in his blog, in regards to getting something they did not get onboard...give it a try...



I didnít know we did these nor did I know they were collectors of them. I think its best you contact the customer service department of our partners who run the onboard gift shops and ask them if you can buy one and it be sent to you. Here is there information:
