Sending gifts to a fellow cruiser’s stateroom is easy and makes for a great gift for any occasion, plus it will be a surprise to them unless you choose otherwise. You can even order these on-board gifts if you’re not going on the cruise. All you have to know is the receiver’s first and last name and their sailing month. So, here are 11 fun Carnival gifts $50 or under to send to a cruiser’s stateroom.
1. Chocolate-Covered Strawberries, $12
Purchase these as a sweet treat for someone or as a surprise romantic gift for your significant other to have waiting for you in your cabin when you board.
2. Fruit Supreme White Wine Gift Basket, $50
In this large gift basket, you’ll get a bottle of white wine in addition to fruit, almonds, and cheese and crackers. It can be the perfect basket to send to a couple celebrating an occasion or anniversary or a thank you to someone.
3. 9 inch Happy Birthday Cake, $14
There are several cakes to choose from on Carnival’s website, but this particular cake is among the top sellers and comes as either a vanilla cake with strawberry filling or chocolate cake with chocolate mousse filling.
4. Beach Towel and Sling Bag Set, $15
This gift is great because, like many others listed below, it can be taken home and reused over and over again, whether on a cruise or just a trip to the beach or pool. You can choose from a shark or mermaid theme, and it includes one beach towel and a Carnival sling bag. This is a perfect present for kids heading ashore for a busy port day on their cruise.
5. Seuss at Sea Splash Pack, $40
The kids go crazy over the Seuss at Sea programs, so this gift of a Seuss at Sea backpack, water bottle, and beach towel is perfect for young cruisers on the go who want to carry some “Moose Juice” with them to Seuss-a-Palooza.
6. Stay Chill Beer Package, $45
If the cruise you know loves to drink, a great gift would be this beer package, which includes a Carnival cooler, four Carnival cups, a bottle opener, and two Carnival koozies. Oh, and it also includes four beers of your choice among Bud Light, Michelob Ultra, Coors Light, Dos Equis, and Corona.
7. Seuss at Sea Activity Kit, $18
If you know someone with kids traveling and want to help keep the kids busy, this kit is perfect for active little cruisers. It includes two chalk drawing areas, one reusable dry erase drawing area, a dry erase gaming area, 50-sheet drawing pad, four pieces of chalk, six markers, and one wiping cloth.
8. Bon Voyage Stateroom Décor, $55
There are so many different decoration packages available through Carnival’s website, with many of them specialized for birthdays, anniversaries, etc., but this package is a fun example of what you can get… and we know — it’s over $55 now. But we had to mention it!
This package includes hanging garlands, a hanging banner, a photo frame, and a beach towel. Like all cabin decoration packages, it is only available for pre-order before the cruise and cannot be ordered once on board.
9. Carnival Sock Set, $13
If you’re looking for a gift that’s practical during the cruise and far beyond it, Carnival offers both men’s and women’s 3-pack sock sets. It’s a great way to keep a touch of your vacation with you even when you’re back at home, and chances are not many people will even see!
10. Summer Sip Set, $38
If you want to rep Carnival no matter what you’re drinking, this drinkware set should fit the bill. It comes with a wine tumbler, travel coffee mug, and water bottle.
11. Cruise Cash, $25
Sometimes the best gift is just plain cash so that the receiver can spend it on whatever they want… drinks, pictures, gift shop souvenirs, candy at Cherry On Top, casino play, a night at the steakhouse, excursions… the possibilities are nearly endless!
Cruise Cash can be bought in $25 increments up to $100, or you can buy “Cruise Cash Photo” credit that applies only to Pixels Gallery photo purchases and comes in $10 increments or “Cruise Cash Bar” credit that applies only toward alcohol and comes in $25 increments. For the latter, make sure they’re not buying the Cheers! beverage package already.
