Welcome to Day 10 of Cruise Critic’s Gift-o-Rama, in which we’ve been unwrapping our 2011 gift picks for the cruisers among us. Better yet: You can actually win some of our choices by simply being a Lido Deck subscriber. Today we bring you an item that any veteran cruiser will tell you is a must-have for your cabin — a power strip. CTA Digital’s Mini Surge Ro-Tector’s tiny size and flexibility make it perfect for using and charging multiple devices at once.
Congratulations to cmyoung1264, who receives the Rock-It 2.0 Portable Speaker. For more information on the cool stuff we’ve been profiling daily on our ever-growing gift-guide-in-the-making, click here.
Here’s the 411 on today’s gift-list-ready find:
What it is: Mini Surge Ro-Tector ($11.99)
Why we like it: Cruise ship cabins are notorious for their lack of power outlets — in fact, many cabins have just a single standard American outlet, meaning cabinmates often have to take turns plugging in. This stocking stuffer sized power strip/surge protector is an ideal option for charging your laptop, cell phone, camera and more while on a cruise. It features one fixed outlet and two rotating outlets, so you’ll be able to plug in a space sucking AC adaptor or bulky three-pronged cord without blocking any of the other outlets. Heck, you can even blow dry your hair while your camcorder powers up.
Where to get it: Check it out here.
The fine print: We’ll be showcasing one gift each day through December 9 and picking a winner of either the gift itself or a Cruise Critic swag pack at random from among all subscribers to the Lido Deck. If you’re already a subscriber or you subscribe before 6 p.m. this evening (December 8), you’ll have a chance to win a Cruise Critic Swag Pack.
Check here for the rules, and be sure to come back each morning at 10 a.m. EST to see the gift du jour — and to find out if you won the previous day’s giveaway.
