Default Who Carries a Flashlight?

There are many important things to bring along on your cruise. One thing we don't leave home without .... besides the Am Ex card... is a flashlight.
Mrs. Kuki has a minature one attached to her fanny


pack

Some folks think this is crazy, but I want to be vindicated. I bet there's lots of other flashlight folks out there. SPEAK UP if you're light is on!!

Regards,
Kuki

Kuki:
A flashlight is part of my cruise packing list. You never know if and when you may need it. Hopefully I never will but it is there just in case.

P.S.
Most crew members carry a small flashlight at all times in case of emergency.

Take Care;
Mike

I always bring my mini-mag lite. It is handy at night in the cabin because you dont have to startle your spouse if you have to get up and go to the bathroom or Casino quetly lol. I bough an extra because I like the new colors they have for the mini mag. My prefrence is the teal one but I like the Red 1 too. :-) Rix

I always bring a light when sailing out of Ft. Lauderdale. The apartments along the causeway send the ship off with lights, and we always respond.

Aaron, that is a great idea. Too bad no one in the condos gets up early to welcome us back. Sailing the Panama Canal from Costa Rica into Port Everglades in a couple of weeks.

I have a mag light on my key-ring and always take it with me on cruises.

I carry a flashlight, but hubby thinks I'm nuts. I did use it on our last vacation, though, when I was looking for something in the middle of the night and didn't want to wake him by turning on the light.

Hopefully I'll never have to use it for a real emergency, but I always bring one!

In over 30 years of traveling I never ever ever ever go without a flashlight. I even carry one back and forth to work.

I agree with Doug, I never leave home without my flashlight. Reason: In California this is called "Earthquake Preparedness"! It is a habit that I see no reason to break. Bon Voyage all!

Mini-Mag is in the hand bag! Hubby gifted me at Christmas with a dual set. Small one in my office at home, and the other in my hand bag. I'll be going with us on the Radiance (along with duct tape) !

OK, folks. I noticed everyone carries one but how often do you use them?
