not including clothes and toiletries, basics should include: Sunscreen, Lip Balm with sunscreen, hats for everyone, fanny packs to carry daily essentials, good pair of walking sneakers, water sandals or water shoes (forget the flip-flops) decks and beaches are very hot. Aloe Vera burn gel, small back pack to carry souveniors, beach tote for towels, book etc. Munchies for the plane, Hairdryer(if your ship doesn't supply one) the ones on the ship don't work very well if you have long or thick hair. Snorkel gear if you have your own and are planning on snorkeling. CRUISE DOCUMENTS, Passport or ID ( this is where fanny pack comes in handy) ,put a pen in your fanny pack for filling out forms, hand sanitizer, hanging car air freshner, travel alarm clock. Make a check list and stick to it.
