I have trouble overpacking so this year I have heard the thing to do is lay out everything you want to take and then put back 1/2 on it. I am going to try this. I always overpack and the packing isn't a big deal it's the unpacking. UGH!!!! I'm also going to try and cut down on the shoes I take. I think last cruise I took 10 pairs of shoes..... Wore about 3 of them.
