Default Packing for baby/toddler

We are going on a 10 day to Alaska with my almost 3yo and 10mo. I must be crazy! But Grandparents are going and wanted the whole family there so I thought I would give it a try!
However, I am overwhelmed with ten days of clothes and general kid stuff to pack.
Any suggestions?

You do have a few options available. Depending on what ship you're going on, they may or may not have a self-serve laundry. If it does, that can be invaluable. If it doesn't, then many ports have self-serve laundry facilities. Otherwise, plan to pack a suitcase for each child and take along many changes of clothes. Or take along some laundry soap and plan to do some washing by hand in your sink. Another option would be just to pay the fees on the ship to let them do some laundry for you, but that can be quite expensive.

Kids tend to like routine. I know that one of the things my nephew did on Holland America (which had DVD players with the television) was watch his three favorite DVDs to get settled in before bed or nap time. I would find out if this is an option for you.
