Default Is there anything that you wish you'd taken on your cruise?

Is there anything that you didn't take on your cruise that you wish you had taken? Why?

probably bring more books with us. We enjoy reading and relaxing with a good book on a cruise. Last cruise was 10 days and we didn't bring along enough books!

Less clothes.

I bring a book on every cruise. Do I ever finish or even read more than a few pages? No.

Pre-printed cards with name, adress, phone, email contact information. I usually end up on computer last night printing out the info; would be much nicer if I just had cards made up in advance to hand out to new friends.

a thermos coffee cup. Sometimes there is no roomservice and you have to go to the buiffet to get coffee. Bringing it back to your spouse is really hard, but if you have a covered thermal cup you can fill it and bring it back to the room and it stays hot.

Tickets for the next 2 cruises B2B2B2B.

Seriously though, I can't think of anything. I always overpack - like a boyscout - always prepared for anything. So I don't think there is anything left at home for me to bring.

Another good idea. I'm going to pack mine.
