I am looking for suggestions from people who have been in this position before:
My wife's family is taking us all on a Caribbean cruise the first week of December. Of course cruise ships are "disarmed-victim zones" to the extreme of no pocket knifes or even pepper spray.
The details are very frustrating as the tickets were bought before I had a chance to say "No."
So because I love my wife, I am going on the cruise (though I would rather not go), and I will be forced to leave every defensive item behind.
I would like suggestions for "creative" defensive solutions that are perhaps possible in a cruise-ship setting. Thanks.
