Thanks I do think I will do the box thing!! That will make it easier to pack anyway and I'll put nursery H2O and such in it!! So how many carry ons are you allowed (to board the ship) and what is the size limit? I was hoping my older kids could carry one on for themselves with their own cabin goodies, swimsuit, and necessities and then I would have one for hubby and I plus a diaper bag but you know how kids holding things are I was kind of thinking one per person??????
