A cruise is a great way to mark a special event or occasion in your life. When making your cruise reservations, mention to your booking agent that you are celebrating an occasion. This will be noted on your reservation and depending on the cruise line, you may receive a special gift, cake at dinner or simply a card left in your stateroom. If you would like to do more, most cruise lines offer packages for purchase that include items like room and door decorations, gift baskets, specialty cakes, wine or champagne and packaged services like a bottle of wine and specialty dinner or bathrobes and spa services. If you’re celebrating something really big and you are travelling with a large group, you can look into the availability of hosting a party in one of the ship’s lounges.
