7 GIFTS FOR CRUISE CREW MEMBERS (they'll actually appreciate)

Are you going on a cruise and thinking about bringing a gift for cruise crew members? Cruise passengers often ask what cruise crew members really want as gifts. In this video I share 7 gifts cruise cabin stewards and other cruise staff appreciate most. Some crew member gifts are things that are tangible, while others are less tangible, but can make a huge difference!

Beyond tips and gratuities, it can be surprising to know what makes the biggest differences to cruise ship crew members. There are some bigger, but also some small things that can have a huge impact.

Whether you cruise with Carnival Cruises, Princess Cruises, Royal Caribbean, Norwegian Cruise Line, Celebrity Cruises or any other cruise line, these are cruise tips that can be helpful. First time cruisers and veteran cruisers alike can benefit from these cruise travel tips.
