Heres a few I MUST bring..
TEA LIGHTS..those lil cheapie battery powered thingies..buy 6 or so for a few bux any dollar store or wallyworld. the things seems to last almost forever and then toss em. for finding the bathroom etc at nite.you only need a couple for a whole week+....I cannot tell a lie...learned it in IN HERE.
EXTENSION CORD...yeh yeh I know power strips and so on, good/bad/oogly...a simple extension cord, I use a 12' to reach anywhere in the cabin for anything. stash it in a drawer in the am. no hassles.
COUPLE KITCHEN GARBAGE BAGS..yeh, for the dirty clothes, but...more importantly, if you're gong to use ships laundry (when you cruise enough to not care what it costs because its free) you put the plastic bag INSIDE their paper bag, which is designed to tear with anything more than a pair of sox in it,,,THEN stuff away.
How bout it ? any sneaky tips to help po suffering cruisers??? heheheheh
