Nautical Bracelet with an Anchor Clasp
When we found this bracelet, it immediately caught our eye. Featuring a thick nylon band with a metal anchor clasp, it’s a cool way to show off your love for the sea. One thing to note is that it runs a little small, so it may not fit larger wrists according to some reviews. $10 on Amazon.
Bookmark Made With Cruise Deck Wood
By far the most unique gift idea for a person who likes to cruise. This bookmark is made with actual teak decking from the Carnival Triumph/Sunrise. We can’t think of a better accessory to give an avid cruiser who wants something a little special that connects them with cruising even when they aren’t on the ship. $42 on Etsy.
Personalized Travel Map
It’s a cute and thoughtful way to remember a special cruise. These maps are personalized based on the actual trip that you’ve taken. Put your homeport, all your stops, and more to create a one-of-a-kind memory of your trip. Prices vary based on size and type of print. Available on Etsy starting at $32.

Cruise Ship Model
This is the most intricate ship model we’ve ever seen and a great display piece for a living room or office. It measures more than three feet long and comes with a display base and name plate.
