Makes things very simple. Less to get stressed out about.
My first cruise I took 2 full size suitcases - jam packed, about 4-5 pairs of shoes etc...for a 7 night cruise. & a medium sized carry on.
Now I take 1 full sized suitcase (which I check) and 1 small backpack for a carry on. It is soooo much easier and I spend most of my time in my swim suit & shorts anyway. It is even nicer now that they started charging on Delta for checking luggage.
