Packing for 5 Day Cruise
I am trying to figure out what it is I really need to pack for a 5 day cruise. I have never been on a cruise before so this is all new to me. However, I would like to avoid my husband and I killing ourselves trying to lug heavy luggage through airports and the port. I want to enjoy myself and have what we need, but I don't want to break our backs in doing so. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
