I’ve long had a list of Recommended Products on my main site — stuff I actually did or do use that might be helpful — but I thought I’d talk about a few things that we’ve picked up recently specifically for our Residential Cruising life that are handy enough that they aren’t really about shipboard living: they’re useful even if you can’t join that life soon or ever.

Lee Wachtstetter and her husband, Mason, liked to cruise: they did 89 journeys together, starting in 1962, to the Bahamas. “The day before my husband died of cancer in 1997, he told me, ‘Don’t stop cruising’,” she said in 2015. She is one of the first modern Residential Cruisers.
