Whether you're packing for a cruise, or any other holiday, don't forget to pack your DRESS shoes!!
On my recent All-Inclusive holiday, I packed like I normally would for a cruise; shorts, T's, bathing suits, flip flops, and 1 or 2 "dress up" outfits for dinner. It was only when I was dressed for dinner that I realized I forgot to pack "dress shoes" or nice sandals. Here's the photo:
Don't worry, I didn't go barefoot. I chose a "dressy" pair of flip flops, the ones covered in tiny coloured sea shells, over my only other choice - bulky big white and purple lace up athletic shoes!
P.S. at least I had Trip's lovely beaded necklace to dress up the outfit, and direct attention away from the underdressed feet!
You forgot to pack shoes. The poor shoes sitting at home missing out on their vacation!!! This is a terrible tragic that could have been avoided. Always pack an extra shoe suitcase to ensure no shoe is left behind. After all it's their vacation to and how often do your dress shoes get a nice vacation. I know mine don't go on vacation nearly enough.

Don't forget when you pack up your luggage on your last night, to keep out some shoes to disembark! When I packed up and sent our luggage out on our last night, I left out a pair of shorts, a T-shirt and my DH's black wing-tipped dress shoes, no socks. He had to wear this outfit around the ship all morning and disembark in it. The kids and grandkids had a good laugh and I have the photo of him in this outfit on my desk.
