I had a friend who was on the Triumph, Carnival cruise that was stranded, with an amazing survival story! She sent me this list of items she would take, in case of emergency. Praying this won't be needed, but I thought I would share just in case... -Flashlights (one for EACH person) -Hand sanitizer -Wet wipes -Clorox wipes? -Power strip/Ext Cord (always handy anyway, but when the scavengers found outlets in the emergency power system behind ATMs, you could get a turn charging your phone faster if you had your own power strip and/or extension cord that you were willing to share- otherwise you had to just sit and wait for an outlet opening) -Spare batteries -USB cord -Snacks (especially crackers) -Safety pins -Good camera -Hand mirror (when the room was dark, the mirror did no good - had to take hand mirror out in sunlight to put on makeup last day) -Sunscreen -Ziploc bags (may pack toiletries in them anyway... but is good to have in case you did need to pack emergency stuff for lifeboats - put money, passport, camera memory card, etc.. in ziploc -Little shoulder bag (small enough to fit close to body with across the chest type strap - just big enough to hold the ziploc bag of money, passport, etc, some sunscreen, chapstick, any meds you need...)- since they prob wouldn't let you take a BAG on board a life boat, a little bag this big would go nearly unnoticed, but have your essentials. -Hat -Personal cup/bottle (like a straw cup - when they were pouring drinks, you could get more if you had your own cup instead of using their little disposable ones, and when cups ran out, you could only get drinks if you had your own cup.) -Extra meds (antibiotic if possible - but take extra days of anything you must take daily) -Tummy meds (including anti-diarrheal - pooping in bags is not a time you want to have the runs!) -Lysol or room freshener spray (body spray will even do the trick) -Small lantern style flashlight (would help light a small area without having to hold it) -Leave In Conditioner (when showers are quick and limited, it helps to have one less thing that has to wash out!) -Hydrocortisone cream (strange rashes can show up when you're confined to these types of areas) -Duct tape?
