If you haven’t seen this unique idea, then pay attention. According to reviews, everyone seems to love this new type of snorkel. By covering your full face, it allows you to breath through your nose or mouth, making snorkeling much more comfortable. The full window mask also improves visibility underwater. $79 on Amazon
Help them show off their love of cruising with this personalized insulated tumbler. Great for keeping those “boat drinks” cold while sipping next to the pool. It also comes in a ton of different colors to fit anyone’s taste. $12.50 on Etsy
No more having to worry about where to put your phone, keys, wallet, or dry clothes when you hit the beach. This handy bag keeps everything wrapped up tight and will even float if you add a little air to it. Maybe that’s why 93% of people rate it 5 stars on Amazon. $22 on Amazon
By far the most unique gift idea for a guy who likes to cruise. These cufflinks are made with actual teak decking from the Carnival Triumph. We can’t think of a better accessory to a gentleman on formal night. $33 on Etsy
Warning — this gift is only for the most dedicated cruisers. It’s a handmade replica of a cruise ship, measuring over three feet long. Offers painstaking detail, and a hefty price tag. Still, if you can afford it, this would be a perfect gift for a cruise lover. Several ships available. $419 on Etsy
If you want to spend any time on the beach, then you have to get this beach blanket. It’s microfiber cloth means that it packs up small and light — saving valuable space. What we like most is the size. It’s so much larger than simply laying down a couple of pool towels to keep you off the sand. $25 on Amazon
Whether you are hanging by the pool or don’t want to leave your valuables on the beach while taking a dip, a waterproof case is a must-have. Use it to keep your phone, wallet, keys, and anything else dry as a bone so you don’t have to worry just because you want to go swimming. You can get two bags for $20 on Amazon
We all know and love that feeling of the warm salty air that you get when you cruise. This tank top says it all. “Salty Air, Messy Hair, Don’t Care.” It’s a fun way to remember your past trips and put someone in that “cruising” vibe without having to take a trip anywhere. $20 on Etsy
Whether headed to a cruise ship or an airport, it makes things so much easier when your luggage is easy to handle. That’s why we like these suitcases. With four wheels, you can push it any direction instead of having to carry it behind you like other two-wheeled models. Plus, for just $80 you can get two cases. They also come in a ton of colors. $80 on Amazon
If you can’t take them to the beach… bring the beach to them. This fun shower curtain has a beautiful image of where we wish we all were — a warm, sunny beach. Best of all there are no other tourists around! $38 on Amazon
Do you know someone that loves puzzles? Then they will love this cruise ship puzzle for their birthday! Best of all, once they are finished, they have a cool model that they can display. $15 on Amazon
If the bags and pouches listed above are too much for what someone needs, what about a waterproof case for their phone? This two pack makes it easy to take a phone (which is now also a camera) with you anywhere in port without having to worry about splashes or weather. $12 on Amazon
Often called the “Holy Grail” of cruising, this guide tells you everything you need to know about cruising. Filled with details, reviews and more about every ship you can imagine, a cruise lover will spend hours pouring over this book. $18 on Amazon
When it comes to cameras, many people just use their phones. But phones have definite limitations. A real handheld camera typically offers better resolution and image quality — especially in low light situations. If you are buying for a cruiser, they will appreciate having a camera that can go anywhere they do. So if they are playing with the kids in the water, they don’t have to worry if their camera gets a little wet. $198 on Amazon
If you are buying a birthday gift for someone that likes cruising, then it doesn’t get any simpler than buying them a gift card to help them pay for their next trip. Carnival makes it easy to buy, either online or in store. Denominations go anywhere from $100 to $500.
