I pack my own, and the lovely Mrs. Jones packs for herself. We have the great majority of our "cruise stuff" pretty much seperated in a spare bedroom. We don't use a list, and at least I pack roughly the same stuff each trip. (I do think it's much easier for a man than a woman) At least that's what the lovely Mrs. Jones tells me. I can't remember ever boarding without anything that was absolutely necessary. We've missed small things from time to time, but nothing that we couldn't either do without, or replace aboard, or ashore. We simply don't "stress out" over the prep for a cruise. We enjoy!
See you aboard,
