Default Share your packing list, Alaska.

Hi!

We are taking our first cruise to Alaska this June, me, hubby and two sons 13 and 15.

I am a list maker, and I save them all on my computer. I'm in the process of making our packing list and thought, perhaps, some of you have saved your packing lists and would be willing to share, by either posting on here, or getting in touch via email.

I will post my packing list, after my cruise (so that I can add what i wish I had taken) on here.

Thanks so much!

Rima

Rima,

If you send me your email address I will send you my list. I am also a list maker and have almost finished altering my Caribbean Cruise list for our upcoming Alaska cruise.

Rima,

I emailed you my packing list. I probably bring too much but when you're on a ship, it can be hard and expensive to replace something you might need so I play it safe.

I check off each item once it goes into the suitcase. Each suitcase is then carried to the front door where it remains until the shuttle service picks us up.

I know exactly how many suitcases we are bringing and do a quick count at the door, at the curb, at the airport check in, as we board with our carry-ons, etc., etc. Each person in our family knows how many and which bags they are responsible for, including carry-ons.

Can you believe that I left something off?

Add Downey Wrinkle Release. We tried it on our last cruise and it worked great! Don't use it on silk or leather, but for almost everything else it works like magic.

I guess any list is a work in progress.

Happy Cruising!

Over the door shoe organizer! Got the tip from THIS board!

We took one on our last cruise and it was WONDERFUL! We sailed with our two kids, ages 8 and 4 (she'll be 5 on Easter!!!).

Shoes ended up living there but the intention was for cameras, Sign and Sail cards (night storage) etc to be stored in each pocket. But in the end our shoes were neatly organized and easy to find.

Our Cabin Steward thought it was a great idea and it was the first time she had seen one one a ship.

We have also used it several times while staying in hotels. We just pack it up when we leave a place and leave it in the suitcase for the next trip!
