Two weeks from now I'll be onbaord heading to where it is a whole lot warmer. As for packing, several years ago I discovered those packing bags and will not travel without them. You can get so much in them it saves space. I used to do the 3 suitcase thing now I can get everything for a 7 day cruise in one 24in that I check and my carryon. Hubby has a smaller 22 inch and a small duffle so we can travel much lighter than in years past. Give these bags a try you'll be glad you did. One other thing, I purchase the spray wrinkle release and pack it in the checked bag. Once onboard I take the clothes out hang them up, give them a squirt of the spary and by the time I need to wear it the wrinkles are gone.
