Congratulations on your first cruise!!! You're going to come back HOOKED and ready to book another!! Beware!!
We, too, have many prescriptions and we put them in 2 of those large plastic day holders, enought for 14 days. You can get them at Target or Wal Mart. That way, when we got to bed, we will know if we took all our meds for the day. Then we bring a pharmacy printout of each prescription. This has the descriptions and all the info anyone would need and it saves room instead of bringing all the bottles. I have always brought my accucheck and supplies in my carryon for both airplanes and ships with no problems.
ENJOY your cruise!!
Teresa and Larry
