We always take "Thank You" cards with us. We use them to put our tips in (my husband likes to give it directly to the folks who help make our trips memorable, does not like the auto-tipping), and also so that we can give a personal note of thanks for specific special things that the waiter, asst. waiter, or room steward may have done for us. We like to give a more personal touch.

Take a can of Lysol disenfectant and spray down your room when you arrive - door knobs, phones, hairdryer, inside medicine cabinets, headboards etc.

Take along a plug in scent - sooo nice when you get back to your cabin after a big night out!!

Wait until your last night to buy pictures. I used to buy the pictures as they were put out daily. One time I just didn't get around to it so on the last night I had all my pictures together and realized I didn't need them ALL. It was easier to compare them all at once and only purchase the best of the bunch.

Take extra ziplock bags. Put the remote control in one and seal it. They (I'm not sure who they are, but...) say the remote control is the dirtiest object in the room, and the least likely to have ever been cleaned.
