We usually do a final pack about 10 days before departure . The DW does a pre pack up to 6 weeks ahead . This helps her to refine her packing. For every cruise she kept a daily diary. There she lists what she wore everyday and what doesn't get worn at all.
This way she has a packing list for warm and cool cruises.
