Gift-o-Rama Day 4: It’s a Wrap

December 2, 2011 | By | 20 Comments

Welcome to Day 4 of Cruise Critic’s Gift-o-Rama, in which we’ve been unwrapping our 2011 gift picks for the cruisers among us. Better yet: You can actually win some of our choices by simply being a Lido Deck subscriber. Today we have a gift suggestion for your favorite lady cruiser, the Saress Beach Dress, a one-piece beach cover up that can easily transition from sunbathing on the lido deck to dinner at any casual onboard eatery. And oh yes: There’s a free one up for grabs.
Congratulations to hottubmama53, who receives yesterday’s gift pick: the Lego Digital Camera. For more information on this item, check out our complete gift-guide-in-the-making here.

Here’s the 411 on today’s gift-list-ready find:
What it is: Saress Beach Dress ($29.99)
Why we like it: Sometimes it’s a pain to have to go back to your cabin for an outfit swap between laying out by the pool and grabbing lunch at the buffet. This simple garment can save time and hassle with its easy-to-wear design. With wrap styling and slightly stretchy material, it will flatter most shapes and sizes — just slip it on over a swimsuit and you’ll be ready to transition from deck chair hog to ship (or port) explorer. It even folds conveniently down to handbag size, making it easy to tote along on shore excursions.
Where to get it: Check it out here.
The fine print: We’ll be showcasing one gift each day through December 9 and picking a winner of either the gift itself or a Cruise Critic swag pack at random from among all subscribers to the Lido Deck. If you’re already a subscriber or you subscribe before 6 p.m. this evening (December 2), you’ll have a chance to win the Saress Beach Dress, today’s offering.
Check here for the rules, and be sure to come back each morning at 10 a.m. EST to see the gift du jour — and to find out if you won the previous day’s giveaway.
You have to be in it to win it: Subscribe to the Lido Deck now.

      I’ll probably win this as it won’t be in my size.
