Default last minute tips?

Okay only 4 days until we head out on vacation...
Any last minute tips?
I think we have thought of everything, but of course there's always a possibility of missing something.

By the way... I guess you already know this but...
The waiting is killing me....

i'm soooo jealous but also happy for you and your sis. i've watched from the distance as you have prepared and i'm sure you have all you need...leave the kitchen sink at home, they will do the dishes for ya!

Prayers for safe travel, blue skies and calm seas.
Have a blast as i know you will
expect a review & pictures when you return

I think you have prepared as much as you can. If you forget anything, either you really did not need it OR you can pick it up somewhere. Last year I did forget one thing....kinda important but I made due! Somehow I left my dress shoes at home. They were in the suitcase, I took them out to put something else in, and I never put them back. At the formal dinners I had my sandals on but it was not all that bad, noone really lookes down at your feet! After dinner I went and changed into something more casual. When we came home, they were on the floor right where I left them! This year I am making sure I have them!!!
Having all of your documents is most important. That is the one thing I make sure to have organized. I also leave copies of everything at home for my kids to know where we are if they need us for anything. Other than that, Have a great trip! We will be leaving shortly after you return!

I know you have probably heard this one before, but I will throw it out there anyway. When you think you have everything in the car, make one more pass through the house. A lot of times that is when something is overlooked by not double checking. Makeup on the bathroom sink counter, the carry on laying on the bed. You know that sort of thing. I hope you have a great cruise. We will be looking forward to your review and pictures.

Don't forget to pack your sense of humor in case you experience one of those minor inconveniences that seem to spoil the entire cruise for some people.

we always joke as we are walking out the back door ...
do we have the passports?
and do we have a credit card with lots of credit?

Everything else is replaceable!

have a good trip, I know you will love it, but we need a full report
when you return.
and lots Of PICS posted.

enjoy!! 8)

So now that you are on your cruise, I want to know if you forgot anything. The reason that I am asking, is I am going on my first cruse next month and I want to make sure I don't leave anything important at home either, so I figured that maybe you left something at home that was important.
