Can some of you more experienced cruisers pass on any ideas of unusual items we might want to bring with us for one reason or another?

Hi I like to bring highlighter for the Cruise Compass so you don't have to keep looking for what you wanted to do. I like to bring a hanging plastic shoe holder with multiple pockets great for those items like sunscreen, glasses,toiletries, it keeps them organized and off the desk. Wrinkle Releaser is wonderful in a pinch. And one other thing I bring is a room deodorizer, some rooms have a stale smell especially in interior rooms. I hope this helps and have a wonderful cruise.

We always bring a surge strip. Power outlets are limited. My wife smokes so we alway bring matches. They cannot give them out on the boat.

You can bring some binder clips to clip onto the bottom of the shower curtain. This will keep it off of you when showering. We also take zip lock bags to keep things dry when we go on snorkeling trips. We bought some waterproof plastic pouches that hang around our neck to put cash and sign and sail card in. My husband bought a mesh bag from the dive shop that we can put our snorkeling gear, sun screen, brushes, and towels in. Have a wonderful cruise!

I bring a travel alarm/clock in case my cabin doesn't have one. I have a travel steamer for my formal gowns so I don't have to get them pressed - it also works on tuxedo shirts. I find it's also helpful to bring a rubber band to go around whatever book you are reading. That way if you're out by the pool or on your verandah you can put it around the book and it won't be constantly blowing open.

I always pack a small eyeglass repair kit, small sewing kit, pepto bills and a laundry bag for dirty laundry. I also bring 16oz plastic cup/glass, as the ones provided for water, iced tea, etc, are usually only 6 or 8 oz.

Oh yeah, I forgot to mention extra batteries for whatever cameras or other electronics you may have. Batteries on board are very expensive. And the last time this happened to us, the ship's store didn't have the batteries we needed for our camera. We had to buy them at a grocery store in Loreto, Mexico...
