Default have you ever lost anything on a cruise?

I lost my sunglasses, Ian lost his visor and his S&S card.

What have YOU lost on a cruise?

Hubby lost his underwear and dress sox. We assumed he left them at home and never got them packed but we never found them again! The gift shop saved him!

Left a pair of sunglasses by a hot tub. I kept checking with customer service but they never were returned.

I chalk it up to me not keeping track of my stuff.

Take care,
Mike

Don't think I've ever lost anything on a cruise. I too have found stuff on ships,,,and in the cabins. Exactly what ship and cabin did you find those Playboy magazines? 8)

We lost our camera. I left it in the ladies room, hanging on the coat hook inside the last stall in the room. I was gone less than 5 minutes when I realized it and never got it back.

Also left two very nice earrings (of course they did not match each other) in our cabin on the Freedom.

Magnates for the fridge that we picked up on different islands. We left them in the drawers.

I lost my camera ( expensive one) on the second to last day of the cruise with all our photos in it, and someone returned it to the front desk, we never found out who returned it, I would have bought them a drink.
It was on the Valor last February.

I don't know where I lost them, but I lost a pair of brand new socks (just got them three weeks earlier at Xmas). I packed them, but when I got to the ship and looked for them, they were gone.

A girl on the ship (who was sitting near our table) said she got up left for a minute or two and forgot her Ipod. Well, she didn't find it and no one turned it in....

Lost my water filtering bottle. I think I left it by a deck chair. It was never turned in. I think I'll only take in on shore excursions next time.

My son lost a new camera cell phone on one of our cruises. Carnival was very good about it, giving us daily updates on the search. At one point, they wanted us to come to the pursers desk to see if what they had, was his. In this box, must have been 10 phones. None were his.

Wow, what a list of lost items! Thanks everyone, keep posting!

At least it doesn't look like anyone lost their cash/creditcards, etc.

It's sad, though, that obviously someone found these lost items and never turned them in. Anytime I find something I don't think, "hey, their loss is my gain" and picket it. Instead, I think, wow, I'd be really pissed/sad if I lost this, I'll get it to the list and found." I think of the smile and thanks I'd get from whoever lost it. That is priceless.

I thought I lost a credit card. What I had done was laid it inside the safe and closed the door. The safe locked automatically (didn't know it did this!) It was the credit card I was using to lock the safe! I learned a lesson, here! Naturally I did this on the last night.

I found a digital camera during muster stations drill. Turned it in. Hope the owner got it back. This was before msblackjack's cruise, so it wasn't hers.

I found a storage card from a camera/phone/digital gadget at the door way to/from the Lido deck. Turned it in to the Pursers desk. Don't know if it was ever claimed.

I wonder if they took someones SD card and printed a few pics off of it and posted the pics around the ship saying.."If this is you come to the Pursers desk!!" would the person actually show or be too embarassed to come forward ?!

Default Lost Items

We haven't lost anything yet but my son did find a floating ziplock bag with a wallet full of cash, credit cards and sail and sign card when we were in Grand Cayman swimming with the dolphins. Just as he was about to take it to our boat captain, a man came up and asked if it was ours and he said he lost it. We gave it back to him and he turned around and put it back into his swimming trunks. That's probably how he lost it in the first place.

I frequently lose lots of nickels in the casino.....perhaps I'm standing too close to the slot machines.

On my last cruise I found 3 pairs of sunglasses and 2 bracelets. First bracelet was found on the deck of the Queen Mary at Long Beach. The sunglasses and other bracelet were found on Carnival Pride. all were turned in, I do hope the owners got them back.
