1/ Hemming and repairing clothing... suggest black tape
2/ repairs just about anything broken
3/ keeps that bulging coil inside the mattress, where it belongs
4/ keeps your stuff secure in rough seas
5/ fixes the thermostat (by covering the vent) or sealing beneath the door
6/ can be used to identify luggage (I suggest a huge black X)
7/ invaluable for impromptu costumes on theme nights
8/ put tape on the back of your sneakers and shoes to reduce friction/blisters
9/ if you tear your inseam on formal night, use black duct tape... people will never notice, or think you are wearing fashionable black underwear!
10/ to avoir getting lost on the ship, leave a trail of duct-tape pieces behind you. The crew will remember you forever....
11/ can be used to save seats (use "Police Line, Do Not Cross", or "Danger High Voltage" design)
12/ The roll can be used as a cup-holder (less stable as roll depletes)
13/ Lay horizontal strips on "saved" deck chairs adhesive side up. They're almost invisible on white chairs. Then everyone will know who the chair hogs are by their distinctive zebra-like pattern.
14/ Can be used to keep closet and bathroom doors from moving in high seas
15/ Tape allows you to play many more bingo cards than table space will allow. It can also prevent "hanging chads" from accidentally re-closing.
16/ Mark your cabin door with tape... they all look alike. Ditto "your" deck chair. The bigger the X the better. Then people will "know".
17/ Use a piece of tape across the arms of your sunglasses behind your head to keep them from falling off. Exercise care when removing.
18/ Tape your "Coconut Drink" to the railing, so it does not fall off and hit someone else's coconut.
19/ Tape your cutlery to the bottom of your plate, to free up your second hand for possibly more food in the buffet line...
20/ Can very quickly turn a plain white t-shirt into a striped one.
21/ Keeps deck furnishings from moving around on your balcony.
22/ Allows you to make "really, really good" towel animals. Show up your cabin steward.
23/ Can be used to darken the window if your curtains are too opaque.
24/ put tape on the bottom of your shoes, so you can waltz easily, even on carpet
25/ mark your muster station with a great big X, or even better, your initials, so you can be absolutely positive you are at the right one... it's a security thing. Ditto your life jackets, in case somebody should try to steal yours. Mark your territory.
(Use your pig latin decifer button from you menu bar).

Great List!!! My Mother-in-Law uses duct tape for every job around the house, and we often tease her about it. There is nothing she can't use it on. If a can think of some of her classic uses, I will let you know.
