This is our first cruise - we decided to do this next year for our vacation instead of taking one of our motorcycle trips.... so I'm trying to gather as much info as possible/website addresses etc. Heck, I'm not even sure where to start to begin to ask questions!!!
First question is what type of clothes to bring along? We're basically jeans/T-shirt kind of people... and I know we need to bring some nicer things along, but don't want to blow my budget in doing so.
Is there a book out there called "cruises for dummies?" haha
Laura, congratulations on taking your first cruise. You won't be sorry!

Also, here is a fantastic site with lots of information. Remember that everyone doesn't do, nor take all of the things mentioned on this list. http://mysite.verizon.net/vzepx5q3/
Have a great cruise!

Thanks for the advice - I've done Hours of reading in the last day or so, and am looking forward to getting my husband dressed up *lol* Change is a good thing right? Even if only on those few occasions.
We put our deposit down this afternoon - have our airfare all set (thanx to Frequent Flyer Miles) and hotel in Seattle... just have to wait and keep gathering information!!!!!
We chose Holland mainly because of price at this point... wanting some nice, but not costly for our first time.
I plan on bringing a laptop (my husband works out of the home) digital camera along with an extra memory card.... what about cam corder? I don't want to be lugging alot of "stuff" around.
These boards a great - thanks so much for the help!!!
