Re: packing for my first cruise and . . .

Just got back -

I wore all of my dressy clothes and shoes except one top. I brought too many casual clothes - I had several T-shirts that I didn't wear. I wore all of my swimsuits and sarongs,...

Re: Re:What are the things you wish you brought?

If you are with a group, do NOT leave home without hand held radios. Ours are by Cobra, and my DH uses them for hunting. They worked great, and we would've been lost without them!

Conquest trip pros and cons

I just got back from the Conquest. It was my first cruise, so I didn't really know what to expect. I never thought I would like a cruise and was talked in to this one by the folks we cruised with. ...

Re: packing for my first cruise and . . .

I actually ended up getting all of my clothes and shoes - except dresses and dress pants - in one large suitcase. I was rather proud of myself for the excellent packing job!! The hanging items will...

Re: What do I need this for?

DUCT tape. It is for taping DUCTS. It is very cruel to tape ducKs.

DUCT. Yes, when you say "duct" and "tape" together, it does sound like "duck tape." It's understandable that people, at...

Re: Unaltered Itinerary??

OOOOHHH! I HOPE I HOPE I HIOPE we get to go there (and that they let us tender to island)! That was the main place I wanted to go on this cruise. I still have my doubts, but Carnival insists we're...

Re: packing for my first cruise and . . .

Yea! another extreme packer! I like to hear from other "princesses" who need all of their things when they travel. I hope to shrink the packing list after this cruise and bring significantly less...

Re: conquest 9/26 itinerary

I have called them and emailed them about this. They know we aren't going to the Caymans. If they had respectable business practices they would've already cancelled that port and made arrangements...

Cat 11 suite Conquest

We leave Sunday and have a Cat 11. Anyone stayed in one on the Conquest? Other ships? They appear spacious (by cruise standards, I suppose) on the website, but we all know those virtual tours can...

Re: packing for my first cruise and . . .

For this trip, we are leaving out of New Orleans, and I live 1 hour away from the terminal. If we were flying, I would definitely force myself to pack lighter!

Re: packing for my first cruise and . . .

Yeah - I was mostly wanting other heavy packers to make me feel normal! Maybe the post sounded like I was asking for advice on how to pack less. What I really wanted was people who packed...

Re: Conquest 10-3-04

Yes, "Cynda" is an unusual name - that, and the fact that you're sailing out of New Orleans, is why I thought you might be the Cynda I know! Have a great trip!

Re: packing for my first cruise and . . .

Actually, the black shoes look horrendous with my formal dresses. One is fuschia and the other is aqua. Black does not go with either. I tried. I also tried to find a black dress that I liked. ...

Do you live in Louisiana? I live in Baton Rouge, and I am an SLP. I am trying to determine if you are the Cynda I used to work with.

I am leaving on the conquest on the 26th. We come...

Re: packing for my first cruise and . . .

Thanks for the tips - I have 5 swimsuits that I am bringing, and a couple of sarongs/cover-ups. Some of the flip-flops and a couple of outfits I originally wanted to bring may not make the cut. All...

Re: packing for my first cruise and . . .

Carole,
As much as I would like to take only 3 pairs of shoes, I can't. The black shoes don't match the formal dresses, so I have black, silver, and gold dress shoes. Each pair of pants for...

Re: Conquest Sept 26,2004 where can we meet

That sounds good to me. I guess I should've mentioned our ages, too. I'm 28, and the rest of the group ranges from 28-34. I'll look for y'all on lido- this is my first cruise, so I'll be exploring...
