Cruise kit goodie bags)
I have been asked to prepare a cruise kit (goodie bag) costing less than $25 per bag for members of a large group that I will be escorting on a cruise. I would welcome your advice on inexpensive items that I could include in the cruise "goody" bags that the group members might enjoy and use while on the cruise.

Thanks for your replies. Some good ideas. Any others would be appreciated, I have a month to put the cruise "goodie" bags together.

If any will have cabin with balcony--bungie cords to hold the door open and get the ocean breeze at night. This is an idea I got on Fodors!
An 8 oz size water bottle which can be refilled (for free) later. Lots of ships charge for bottled water as you're leaving the ship for a day-trip to a warm port of call.
Have fun with your gang, CruiseGuy!!

...this is a bit more work, but could be a fun memorable item....burn a cd with songs that fit the destinations i.e. caribbean, european, I am not sure where you are going...and have the label of the cd be the Group name and date...then they can listen later and always remember...Once you make it, burning supes would be easier although if the group is large it may be pricey...just a thought....

Sunscreen, insect repellant, bandages, sunburn lotion, hand sanitizer (Purell), Kleenex, and trail mix (for a snack on excursions).

How about disposable rain coats/ponchos
Much easier than trying to dry out when it rains.
