Default DON'T FORGET to PACK ...

We just returned from PRIDE 3/2 to Western Caribbean. Had a GREAT time and the ship is beautiful. We'd taken along some Glow-in-the-Dark Bracelets and Necklaces that we passed out in the nightclubs and up on deck at nite. They were a big hit and lotsa fun.
So be sure to pack some of these things for extra fun in the lounges and on deck at nite. I bought these items at oriental.com, along with a whole lot of other fun things for the trip, like stuffed tropical fish and a variety of keychain novelties to hook on our bags for easy identification. They worked GREAT!

When you disembark, they 'herd' you to the luggage warehouse to find your bags, which are all arranged by your luggage tag color, but you still have to look up and down the rows and on the tables for your bags. Be sure to have some type of easy identification on them. I used neon colored, stuffed tropical fish. Very cute and they worked great.

Hi Nancy,

for those great tips, bet it was a huge hit!

As for finding luggage in the warehouse, I've been using some wild color yard, definately helps, also since half the cruisers have the same garment bag, it does help locate that too :-)

Just love the idea of those tropical fish, thanks again.

As for checking your bags....this should not be a problem. Even though there are some risks of lost lugggage...with the airlines new carry on luggage size requirements I wouldn't even fret over just having carry ons. Hey if worst came to worst most cruise lines have insurance policies that insure a shopping spree to the approximate value of what you had packed!! so hey....new clothes and the old ones when they find them!
