Default lights on balcony

I read some time ago that people bring white christmas lights to string up on their balcony. Iam traveling on the Triumph in three weeks and want to know if people actually do this. Thanks. Carol

I advise everyone to bring extension cords and a surge strip as there is only 1 outlet in the cabin.Robocop wrote:

I have seen here before.....some posts saying bring these things.....since I am not an electrician I will ask ........is that a good idea ? Could it become a safety issue? Seems like something like that could get out of hand.

Battery powered lights would work.

A powerful battery powered strobe lite would be fun to have on a deck :-) Rix

I think it sounds like fun, too! I would think that there are some type of low lights available for the balcony anyway, but strings of lights would be festive. The battery operated ones aren't worth your trouble, I tried some at Christmas on the dining room table & the batteries lasted about 4 hours! The party wasn't even over & the lights were out.

I hope no one is serious re/lighting up their balcony with christmas lights. The biggest single threat to a ship is fire. These christmas lights are normally cheaply made and were not designed to be exposed to the salt water corrision, etc. The ship provides lights on the balcony if one wishes to simply flip the switch and turn them on.
I would also be considerate of my neighbors before I lit up my balcony with a string of garrish lights.
It's very unsafe and as another poster said, plain tacky.
