Default Packing List - Help

A few years ago board members gave me a link to a cruise packing list that was circulating around the boards.

I can't find it ....................

I have two friends taking their first cruise and I wanted to give them a copy of the list.

Does anyone know where on the net I can get it

Many thanks if you can help

Dunhill Vacations also has an excellent packing list - probably not the one you are looking for, but I've used it for a couple of years now - may help.

Might I also suggest:

bubble wrap (for wrapping delicate purchases), tape, and scissors

walki-talki's to communicate with your roommate while separated

disposable ponchos (79 cents at KMart sporting goods department)

Quarters to use in washer/dryer machines (if you would like to do washing while on board)

Plenty of film for your camera

Antacids and laxatives (or diaharia) medications

Sudefed (or similiar)

Shampoo and conditioners (I hate the ones that the ship offers)

Thanks everyone, you have been a real help.

Gave my friends all the information and they appreciated it very much.

I haven't started to pack yet, leaving on Friday for Orlando. If I forget anything I can buy it when I get to a store!
