Here is one thread that a number of people have used.

http://www.cruisemates.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=557777

You can also do a search of "Packing List" and there will be many options for you to choose from.

Take care,
Mike

Default Packing

We started doing "bundle packing" on our last trip and I will never pack another way, especially when you have quite a bit to take.

Try www.onebag.com
www.packinglight.net - this one has a short video

Worked great for us!

Due to the new travel restrictions, this time, we packed much lighter, with smaller suitcases. Even downsizing, I didn't wear it all, to my surprise....

We downsized the size of our suitcases, from our large ones to medium sizes, and,this time brought 6 pairs of shoes....for those of you who know me well, this is major.

Both of the bags were under the 50 pound limit, when weighed, and we thought we would be charged for the bags, but I guess we were grandfathered under our old tickets...I think we did very good this cruise, lesson learned, if I can do it, anyone can

Default GOING INTERNATIONAL

Last time we went directly international from Boston on Aer Lingus.. they never weighed the suitcases.. It was when we flew from Boston to Miami that we were walloped with the charges... Medium sized suitcases...one each?? I'd be sitting on the darn thing to close it..I'm not a small person and my clothes are big.. Oh the heck with it..I'll try.but there are certain items that are "cruise" and I will try to mix and match...
