Default Packing List

Is there a list on the site for great packing tips for cruises...what not to bring, what to bring, etc. My friend's inquiring mind asked me to find out.

I guess a lot depends on how many days the cruise is and what your preferences are.

Here's a couple of links to go to for lists but one of the best lists I've seen have been from Rev11:17. His covers everything and things you never thought of. I just can't seem to find it right now.

i agree with Dina that Rev's list is a very good place to start.
I don't know how to pull up the link but if you hit next on the go to page at the right then look on that page for the topic" Packing for a 14 day cruise"

Karon,

Is there a list on the site for great packing tips for cruises...what not to bring, what to bring, etc. My friend's inquiring mind asked me to find out.

The post to which Carolin and Lisa are referring, which provides separate packing lists for men and ladies and a bunch of related tips, is the first post in this thread. You'll need to adjust the numbers in the lists for the durstion of your cruise and, of course, drop the attire for "informal" evenings if you are on a line that does not have them, but that's pretty easy.

Have a great cruise!

Norm.

Norm's list is good for clothing, although it is oriented toward Celebrity Cruise Line, which is fairly upscale and more formal than others. Yours may vary. You might also want to check two threads:
"What are the thing you wish you had brought", dated in Spetember of this year. And, I posted one "My packing list", dated 8/24/06, since I never forget clothes, but have to remind myself about other types of stuff to bring. I had also listed items I pre-pack as a bag to take into ports, but can't find it.....I know my brain is around here somewhere!
