Lots of questions, I'm sorry - but I'm hoping it makes it easier for the next person to have a lot of answers in one post!
If you are flying, do you put your luggage tags on before you leave - or when you arrive at the port city? I drove last time so I don't quite know what to do when flying!
Jamaica. Dunns River Falls. Has an overweight, 50ish gal ever climbed it? I'm not completely out of shape - I have a shape and it's round!
I just don't want to either make a fool of myself - or fall and get hurt!
Sailing 6/1 on Carnival Triumph. Cabin 8204. Anyone have an opinion on that cabin?
What can you suggest to help me calm the nerves of a DH who is a first time cruiser (only my second) - he's afraid of water (he CAN swim, he just has an unhealthy fear because of an accident when he was a teenager) - he's an automotive nut who spends all of his free time in the garage and has never relaxed on a vacation like a cruise, we are usually driving or riding our motorcycles when we go on vacation. In other words, he's never relinquished control over his mode of transportation before. And he's very nervous about going!
For those of you who fly frequently, my laptop bag is a Swiss Army Laptop Backpack, like this one. Is that small enough to be considered a personal item?
Please, no flames about taking the laptop. I like to download all my pics each night so I can keep track of them better and describe them while it's all fresh in my mind.
With the increase in fees for the 2nd checked bag when flying, is anyone wearing the same formal dress twice on the same cruise? I was thinking maybe I could change it up with a different sweater or jacket for the second night. I'm just trying to figure out how to consolidate some luggage here.
And finally, how do you manage the final "can't wait to go, geez I'm going on a cruise, it's almost here" jitters? I'm going in under two weeks and it's truly consuming my every waking moment!
