  • Pack light.. Most of the stuff I took, I did not wear.. Shorts, shirts and bathing suit or two is really all you need.. I wore sundresses the most.. If you plan on the captions dinner, of course you will need something nice and hubby will need a suit.. But for the other dinning times we were dressed nice casual LOL... So one outfit for each day and maybe two outfits for dinner that you can mix and match.. Take sunblock and aloe:) Bathroom stuff like soap and shampoo.. Makeup and curling iron if you need one but they have blow dryer.. If you think either one of you will get seasick get the Dramamine patch.. I grew up on boats but still felt a little woozie...Flip flops for shoes except for dinner and tennis shoes when we were out... Have a blast.. Oh and if you drink soda or water, you can take it with you on the boat but if they find alcohol they will take that...Drinks on the boat are like 5.00 for a coke LOL...

  • Not sure which line you are taking but they should have a FAQ section on their website to answer any other questions you may have.. My girlfriend took like 3 bags herself.. Talk about a pain getting on and off the boat.. Hubby and I had everything in one suitcase plus we had a carry on bag with meds, makeup and the other small stuff.. We can't wait to go again :)
