Default Cruise ship souveneirs

Do you keep programs ,menus ,etc. from your cruises as souveneirs ?

On our initial cruise ,a Cunard ship ,the menus was 9x12 and designed to resemble ships. I took one menu from each dinner meal. Over the years I've kept activity programs ,ship newspapers ,etc .

Because of my job here, I try to bring back anything I think may be relevant in helping someone, booking that ship, like shore excursion brochures, daily newsletter, drink menus etc,anything that might have pricing, things like that.

My Kids gave me an antique menu from the 1938 sailing of the Queen Mary. Some of the dinner options, I have no idea what they are, but the Roast Haunch of Mutton, I know I wouldn't choose!

My DW saves the daily papers and all kinds of brochures as well as pretty much anything to do with that cruise.
She then puts all that stuff together along with pictures that we take and makes an album.

I keep the dailies with some intention to eventually use them for scrapbooking, but that never happens.

I always buy a shot glass from the ship. I forgot on our last cruise

If anyone here sails Eurodam, I will send you some money to buy me a shot glass and send it to me!

I used to bring home Princess Patters and that kind of thing, but eventually, they got tossed. I still have pinned up on the bulletin board cabin keys from HAL, Carnival, and Celebrity. Usually, Keith buys a t-shirt or two.

I buy a ship's mug from each different ship I go on. My favorite is still the first one, the Carnival Fascination in 1995. It has the itinerary on it.

I used to bring home all the shipboard papers but have long since stopped. I still have a keychain I bought on my first cruise on Carnival Festivale in 1983. Back then the whole fleet was 4 ships. They are all listed on the keychain. Carnivale, Festivale, Mardi Gras and Tropicale. I still use that keychain everyday. I do have the pins that I was given at the past guest parties.
