Default Bizarre items

I've seen people (myself included) who show up on cruises with some fairly bizarre things.

What do u pack on a cruise, that you're absolutely sure NO ONE ELSE takes along???
In my case, its a toss up between my thongs and my antlers and my Mrs Kuki ...<G>

Regards,
Kuki

I guess the most BIZARRE thing I bring is myself. Things don't come much stranger than that.

Deep meditation CD's. My daughter Nina calls them "Big Brain Tapes."

Kuki:
I don't know if it's bizarre but I always pack my Leatherman. A wonderful multipurpose tool. My wife also has her pillow packed in her suitcase. She can't go anywhere, overnight, without it. It's feather so it doesn't take up too much space in the suitcase.

I also make sure I pack my rubber duckie for those hot tub sessions. VBG

Take Care;
Mike

Duck tape. I take it on all vacations. I've used it to hold curains closed and open, tape over vents that are putting out too much cold air, fix luggage. The list is endless. It could come in very handy in rough seas.

Ok....*I* was going to say duct tape, so I guess if two of us pack it, it's not so bizarre.
A night light would be my second guess. I hate the dark.

Doesn't everyone use duct tape?<G>
I think that it's like many slang terms in the english language, which over time, have gone from obscure to being considered everyday language. Duct tape and a butter knife are about the only tools I know how to use .. lol.
Mrs. Kuki has a miniature flashlight attached to her fannypack. U'd be surprised how handy that's come in.

Regards,
Kuki

One of the neatest items I had great use of (not very bizarre) was a hand carry on Igloo Cooler holds about 5 soda cans. Used it as a great ice bucket the room attendent would always keep full in addition to the small ones they give you. Love that ice reserve. Can use it at port also for sandwiches and stuff at ports.

I also take duct tape and a cooler, though I take the folding type insulated cooler, I have a hanging type wash up kit with a million pockets and there is evrything in those pockets from a sewing kit to scotch tape, post it pad, screw driver, mini flashlight etc etc etc, its amazing what you "might" need.....jean

The thing I caught the most grief for was the blender . . .
