Ladies - Where do you keep your cell phone?

Recommended Posts

All of the shorts or pants I wear during the day have pockets, so I have my phone and my sea pass in there.

 

In port, I carry a backpack and use a cross body bag for the important things.

 

In the evenings, if I am not wearing pants with pockets, I carry a clutch bag with my sea pass card and my phone.

On another note, where do you keep your money when going to the beach in a port. The last time we went to the beach we each took turns going in the water so someone was always with our stuff.

Search Amazon for a waterproof water wallet.

Around the ship, I'd carry a small cross body purse or pool bag to carry any necessities. In port, a backpack, but typically just had my phone in my back pocket. Easy access to take lots and lots of pictures! Although I'm thinking of getting one of those around the neck waterproof cases. I'm always really wary taking any pictures around the pool or in the ocean, so figure I should give a waterproof case a shot and see how I like it!

Back in 2005, I bought a RC travel purse thing that can be used like a crossbody purse.  Bought it on Majesty of the Seas.  I love it!

This was always a problem...but now I recently found a very small thin cross body bag that will hold my iPhone and SeaPass card. Black (they had other colors) leather like at Target $10.00....it works great.

 

I don't like the lanyard types around my neck...my type is very comfortable.

That is exactly what I use.  I actually bought mine on the ship ($10 sale- yes I hate those, too.  But this time it came in handy, LOL!)  I got tired of no always having a pocket and worrying about losing my small stuff.  I only keep my Sea Pass Card, phone (which acts  as my on-ship camera) and a lipstick.  Very handy.

I have a couple of wristlets that work well. The shops onboard have cute ones with a nautical theme and the name of the ship. I also love my Vera Bradley one. Easily fits my phone, seapass and hand sanitizer - all items I never leave my cabin without! In the evenings I have a cute black clutch bag I also got on the onboard shop, in the $10 bin.

I have a swim suite with a ziplock type pocket. I keep money passport and sea pass in it. I’m looking for something to protect my phone while in the water.

If I don't have my beach bag with me, I have a wristlet with me.  Just something inexpensive that I got at an outlet specifically to use on vacation that will hold my phone and some cards.

I use a Vera Bradley All in One Crossbody wallet that I carry my phone (Samsung S9), S&S card and casino money in.  It's small and light and comes in all sorts of patterns.  Can use as a wristlet or a shoulder/crossbody bag.  Do I sound like an ad for Vera Bradley??  LOL!

During the day: in my beach bag, or locked up in my cool new thing (see pic), at night: in a cute purse.

 

note, the thing below holds two phones, 2 drivers license, cash, and a kindle paper white (not in a case)

Slightly off topic...years ago I witnessed a "fanny pack pub crawl." Best use of fanny pack ever.... just so my post doesn't get deleted, I generally just carry my phone, and I often wear clothing with pockets. I get cold easily, so it's a non issue for me to roll in a hoodie in a lot of weather.

Running belt sold in athletic stores or on Amazon. Similar to a fanny pack but way cooler.

I use mine to take photos, so it's either in a wristlet size bag with my S&S card, or in a small tote bag with my Kindle, a word search book, chapstick and S&S card (on sea days and embarkation day). If I wasn't using it to take photos, I'd leave it locked in the room safe.

Am I the only one that when I am "sans" pockets, the phone goes inside my bra?

Like, the "go-to" spot.  I read my Kindle books on my iphone, so my current book goes with me everywhere, not to mention the whole phone thing.  I don't want to always carry a bag of some kind so I can read my book, especially if I'm just going to go sit somewhere and read.  Of course, if I take my noise-cancelling headphones, and a water bottle, or a sun visor, that's a whole different situation.

I am a Vera person also and purchased this one.  I love that it is so small and I can fit the "essentials" in it including my passport.

Informational:  some have reported an increase in breast cancer among girls who tuck their cell phones in their bra.

Rarely do I have pockets so I have a wallet iPhone case. There are spaces for cards and some cash. Has a wrist strap so it’s easy to carry around.

It doesn't stay in there that long; maybe 10 minutes, tops.  Plus, I usually end up with something else that requires a bag of some sort.

 

 (Good thing I just had my mammo , or I might get worried!)

I've never been well endowed enough for anything to stay there!  😂🤣

 

Mine usually stays in the safe when I'm on board ship.  In port, I'll probably have a backpack with it and everything else I'll need. But these posts are giving me even better ideas.  Thank you!
