Good point about cross packing. That's what I'm gonna do on my upcoming cruise. Even though I'm only packing for one ... spread the different types of clothing over the two bags. This way, if one is lost, at least I've got some casual clothing, a formal outfit, etc., in the remaining bag.
Now I have a question.
For the first time in my life, I upgraded to a first class ticket on my flight from Philly to Tampa. I know I get a bigger seat, but what else can I expect? Priority luggage handling?
