We're planning to buy a new bag or two for carrying stuff around while in port (wallets, drinks, binoculars, cameras, etc.). Any advice for what to look for in a bag? I was thinking some type of backpack maybe.
If you plan on doing any souvenier shopping, backpacks help. Much easier to simply drop each bag into the backpack than to have to keep up with numerous varied sized bags. I use the outside pocket of my backpack for things I might need, e.g.binoculars or sun screen, and the inside pocket for stuff I won't need to get out until I'm back on board. I use a fanny pack for small stuff like sun glasses.
