$7 - $46, Zazzle, Etsy and Vinyl Disorder
If you've got cruising on the brain, this "Eat. Sleep. Cruise." print is for you. It'll set you back less than $13 and get you thinking about your next sailing. If it's a bit too trendy for your tastes, try this more classic, handmade poster of Normandie. Or, for a more funky take, give this ship decal a go (60").

Whether you're planning for a special occasion or just need everyday melamine plates, put these on your wish list. Order a set of the same print, or mix and match with other available cruise-themed designs. Plates are shatter-resistant and dishwasher safe. Or, if you're into baking, check out this cruise-ship cookie-cutter. Other fun nautical shapes include anchors, crabs and palm trees.
