  • start your next pack of pills when you are on the cruise and when you go home back up and take the placebos, this is what I done for my honeymoon,

  • If you're already on bc, then just skip the placebos - do it with every period between now & then so that you know whether you'll be totally period free or if you'll need to bring supplies in case you spot. Don't wait til then and take chances.
