I hadn't cruised in over 10 years and had forgotton how and what to pack. When we went on the Legend this past June, I packed WAY more than I needed to! I had one suitcase alone filled with clothespins, duct tape, power strips, all sizes of Ziploc bags, post-it notes, jellyfish anti-sting lotion, hairdryer, shampoo, beach towels....and the only thing needed were the large-sized Ziploc bags and only 2 of them at that. The next cruise will be pared down by at least one suitcase and several pair of shoes...
