Though not yet assigned to my (RCL) ship, I'm concerned about bringing too much personal gear on-board, to wit:
Scuba: My scuba duffel, 30 X 14", is stuffed with all my gear, less tanks and weights. Is it realistic to think, as a slot tech, I'll have much opportunity dive? Would it be better to just rent the stuff in port, and leave the duffel home?
Bongo: I like to travel with a percussion kit, 20w X 12d x 10h (inches), and sit-in if there's music among the crew. Is it common to find the occasional acoustic jam session going on?
Room Air Filter (loaf of bread size): I know, I know ... "What else, his Harley Davidson?" The whole concept of an ocean cruise is the fresh air ... I get that part ... but a crew cabin is an enclosed space, I find I'm far-less prone to colds, and sleep much better in a room with a small air filter. Is there any policy about keeping such a device (quietly) running throughout the day? Would there be a security (read: pilferage) concern, it sitting out all day unsecured?
Thanks in advance to all respondents,
