Post it notes, door decorations, power strip, night light, mesh laundry bag, and hi-lighters blue and yellow. One person takes blue the other yellow. If there is something you both want to do together blue plus yellow makes green.

Ive found the radios arent as useful as you might think and stopped taking them after lugging them along and never using them.

A small set of binoculars is nice to have to.

BTW leaving you balcony door open wastes AC.

I always take a purse with a long strap that can be worn across my body so that my hands are free. This keeps me from laying my purse on a table or other surface and leaving it, which I have been known to do!!! There are many other things that I also take, but most of them have been mentioned here already.

I hope all of you have many more wonderful cruises in your future!!

Just thought of another thing to add to the list.

Mole skin. Found in the foot care section at the store or pharmacy. Sticky like a bandaid on one side and soft on the other. Cut to shape as needed.

In case that new pair of shoes you bought for the cruise or those dress shoes you only wear twice a year rub your feet bad. It could be a life saver.

Hikers have used this stuff for years to protect their feet from blisters etc.

I have never taken door decorations, but if I were taking an elderly person with me, or even children, I think the door decoration would be a good idea. It would make it much easier for them to quickly identify their rooms.

Default I got scorched on the last cruise

And I was totally shocked that the onboard store didn't have anything for sunburn relief. There were over 2000 people on the ship and tell me none of them needed burn relief besides me! We had to walk around downtown Ocho Rios looking for a drug store - it was not fun. Bring plenty of burn gel with lidocaine. It is much cheaper to bring sunblock from home, too. I put shampoo, the burn gel and any other liquids inside double Ziplock bags and pack it in the middle of the clothes in my suitcase. I have never had anything explode in the luggage.

Hi Cruisers,

Lost of great new ideas. Never thought of the mole skin. I do have a tip a friend gave me. I'm quite a large woman. A friend on a Richard Simmons Cruise to Lose gave me this tip. In hot humid climate put a panty liner under the band on your bra. It will wick away excess moisture that can make you uncomfortable. And, I just got back from Maui and found my new must pack for travel is a drawstring backpack. Loved it more than my hip pack.

Aloha :-)

The only other thing not already listed that is on my must-pack list is a can of Lysol. I like to spray the entire bathroom and most of the cabin (carpets, spreads, etc.) before we unpack. I'm sure they are probably fine, it just makes me more comfortable.
Hi JaxGuy,
I agree. And, I was in Longs and found a travel size Lysol that I can keep in my purse. Along with my travel pack of toilet seat covers, TP and Hand Sanitizer. There are times when you really need those items.

Happy Cruisen
