I just have to mention here too that over the years I've seen where people wanted to and have brought Christmas lights to decorate their balconies. That's a hazard waiting to happen--it happens all the time in homes around Christmas time so I would think it would be doubly dangerous to decorate a balcony with cheap Christmas lights, especially as they're made for use in homes, not to be used exposed to the damp, wet salt air of the sea, and not to mention how tacky.
Who would see them at night anyway-- it's not like you can get off the ship and admire them from afar--But it very easily could start a " far. "
Just my nickel's worth--used to be 2 cents worth but things have went up!!
