"E-cig" and charger, which means taking a lead as well as most sockets seem to be too near the surface for me to plug the contraption in.
I ticked binoculars, which are about all else I need. G takes several gadgets, and I don't understand half of them.....

I am not a gadget person. Alex usually has the camera but has now got a new iphone and is enjoying taking photos with it! so I now had the camera for our Azura cruise. he also takes his ipad. I keep forgetting to take my daddies binoculars. :( need to get them out of his memory box that is in the loft.
Don't want to work just want to cruise.
