Mark Your Territory at Sea

As I wrote in an earlier blog entry, my dear one always, but always,has a problem remembering his stateroom (cabin) number when we cruise. At one point, he had developed a nasty little habit of writing down the number - on his hand! (Men- what can I say?) I told you my solution was to put an attractive magnet or even a custom cruise magnet on our cabin door as a marker for him. We've done this on a number of occasions now, and it works like a charm!

I'm guessing he might not be the only one with that problem. And it will only get worse, as cruise ships get bigger and bigger... and the hallways with their rows of identical cabin doors stretch farther and farther.

So, I thought . . . Wouldn't it be a great idea to have magnets designed specifically as markers for cabin doors? Yep. So, Stateroom Door Markers became my latest design project. The first designs have now been added to my collection of cruise themed buttons, badges, and magnets in my design gallery at CruiseReady on Zazzle.

Now, of course, you could use any magnet to mark your cabin door... and there are lots of cruise themed magnets to choose from in my gallery - both fun magnets, and customizable cruise magnets that (like the cruise name badges) you can personalize with your own cruise information. But, now, there are cruise cabin door markers, too. Some are very generic, like the This is OUR DOOR one, while there are others you can personalize with your name or names. There's even a special one for honeymooners.

Maybe there's one there that just needs to go on your stateroom door for your next cruise. Look and see! And, please, feel free to leave a comment - either here, or at CruiseReady on Zazzle.

It's the Month of THE SUN

October is Sun Month at Port Canaveral! Yes, friends and neighbors, the Sun will be shining here, no matter how many clouds might be in the sky.

Why is that?

Because The Sun is coming - the Norwegian Sun, that is!

Yes, beginning the middle of this very month, there will be a new ship calling Port Canaveral HOME. For the first time in 11 years, Norwegian Cruise Line will homeport a vessel here at Port Canaveral. The Sun will be 'wintering' here for at least the next two years... She'll spend October to April plying the waters of the Eastern and Western Caribbean, with weekly Saturday turnarounds at our fair port. (The remainder of the year, she sails a Baltic Capitals itinerary.)

So, get ready, Port Canaveral, because:
