Have you bought anything special (besides attire) for the main purpose of cruising?

I have found myself buying special makeup bags, jewelry rolls, and travel bags to make things easier when cruising. Ones that I normally use for travel are too large, too heavy and take up too much counter space. I have purposely downsized many of these items for cruising. What special item have you bought for the sole purpose of using on your cruise?

A beach bag, hard case luggage, a cross body purse, a clutch that holds my phone 9but broke on the cruise).... Everything else has been clothes and bathing suites.

My prescription container.. I keep my meds organized.

My shaving stuff and dental stuff.

Water sandals. Knew we needed water shoes or sandals for our last cruise as we were planning to climb Dunn's River Falls and for that you must have water shoes so we bought some in preparation.

Oh and before last cruise I saw the RFID protector sleeves so bought a pack of 5 to protect my cards while travelling. They are great. Credit or debit card slides into the sleeve and the sleeve fit right in the normal wallet where the card was.

The added bonus to these was with the security doors at work.My door card at work was sometimes a hit and miss as I always leave it in my wallet and just swipe the wallet. Turns out that this was due to interference from my cc. After getting the RFID sleeves for my cards I have no more problems with my card for the doors while in my wallet.

I got some of the luggage tags for the cruise ship tags.... an LED night light for the cabin bathroom Hate being blinded by the big light in the middle of the night), a small flashlight, water shoes and the travel sizes of toiletries.

OOO yes the plastic tag holders for RCI luggage tags and the towel clips for the pool too so I can clip the towels to the back of the chair without the wind blowing them away.

Waterproof bag for excursions, extension cord with extra outlets (no surge protector), hardsided spinner luggage (makes it easier for self disembarkation).

First cruise is good excuse to shop!Big Smile Amazon was my friend! Towel Clips for chairs, water-proof pouch for ID and money for beach, sunglasses, bathing suits, water shoes, beach bag...

I'm sure there are some other items, but they've been packed and I've forgotten what they are. LOL 20 Days and counting.....sooooo excited!!!!Wink

Extention cord, and always my thermal coffee cup!

Cruiseline.com t-shirt, fan, sign, pen, paper, thermal cup (oh, wait a minute -- those were given to me -- Thanks Cruiseline!Love)
