Default Things only you do on a cruise

When I am on a cruise I also leave one article of clothing behind ,intentionally .

I save a coin from a prior cruise to spend on the next cruise .

What are some things you do that you doubt anyone else will do ?

I've tried to leave Mrs. Kuki onboard several times, but then I always seem to find her on the carousel, spinning around with the luggage. I assume the porters carry her off.

I use to leave my books on board. I first offer them to the staff, and then request they go into the library.

Where did you keep that coin you saved from the last cruise? I hope no one goes looking for change.

Henry,
I love the idea of taking a coin from your previous cruise, great idea, kind of like a good luck piece....seems to work I am thinking.

On my last vacation I left something in the pre cruise hotel as well as the cruise ship . A CM person who was staying at the same hotel offered to try and find the item for me .

Nobody has ever returned anything .

My wife and I are usually very conservative people, but on a ship with 3000 people you will probably never see again, we normally let our hair down and get kinda wild.

We went to a Couples resort when our ship visited Jamaica one time on a day pass. They had a nude beach there we just had to try.

One cruise, I took my shy timid self and participated in the Hairy Chest contest.

These are just a couple of examples....I wont get into the sex on the Lido deck, thats for another day

Happy Sailing
Tim

On the subject of which we always check drawers etc for things that might have slipped behind, and you'd be surprised/scared by whay we have found - the most scary was a clean but old very large pair of bloomers !!!, at the other end of the scale we also found a brand new good quality bra still in it's packaging, just the right size for Mrs J.

Other odd things include pills, wooly hat, sunglasses minus 1 lens a collectors item coin in it's holder, and a QE2 ship's entertainment paper dated some 20 years ago - hope that hadn't been there all that time.
