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.
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.
