This is my first time to this site.My hubby and I are going to go on our first cruise in Dec. 2001, for our 10 year anniversary. Are there any special discount's we can ask for or any "special things" we can hope for? Also, how do you go about packing 2 cocktail dresses in your suitcase?
Having packed many cocktail dresses and long ball gowns, you must, must,
must, leave them in the plastic cleaner bags. Put them in your "hang up" type
bag and fold as usual. The bags create a cushion of air which greatly reduces any wrinkles. As soon as your bags get to the stateroom, "shake" the dresses out, and "hand" press them. If this doesn't work, you can "steam" them in the bathroom, and as a last resort, you can send them out to be pressed.
You didn't mention your ship or cruise line: different lines have different practices.
But, be sure you let your travel agent know it is your Anniversay and they will notify the ship. Normally, you could expect a cake, balloons, or something.
Hope you have a wonderful cruise. We are sailing on Nov 12th (Volendam) and
it is our Anniversary too!.
