We packed for our Alaska cruise last night and I am embarassed by the number of suitcases that we have. Five seems excessive. I tried blaming all the heavy clothes but finally admitted that we always have this many bags even for Caribbean cruises. It is always most humilating on the final night of the cruise when you notice you have twice as many suitcases outside your door as everyone else does.
#1: 2 pr
formal shoes, 4 pr
dress shoes, 2 pr
gym shoes, socks, underwear (22" bag)
#2: 2 tuxes, 2 suits, 4 sportcoats (large bulging, folding hanging suitcase we could barely zip closed)
#3: sweaters, jackets, sweatshirts, slacks, shirts, shorts, etc (a huge, hernia-inducing bag that I bet we'll have to pay a penalty for)
#4: Small carry-on for toiletries and numerous grooming items (electrical and otherwise)
#5: Carry-on computer bag with no computer, for tickets, wallets, phones, books, magazines, etc.
How many suitcases do you guys take on a 7 day cruise? Make me feel better!
