I cannot remember te last time I had more than one suitcase for a 7 day cruise. I just pack shorts, tops and slacks I can mix and match. Enough underwear for the week. I pair of dress shoes, 1 long black skirt, two dressy tops to change with the skirt. flip flps and sandals and beach shoes. Hosiery nd a slip and nightgown. Makeup and personal hygeine items. I carry my camera and jewelry in my carry on along with my purse and my documents packet. I learned te last time that taking my laptop was a waste of time and space. I also carry on my medical needs.
