 Your own bottled water and sodas (if you drink them).  Theirs aren't bottled in the states and are nasty! 

You need to see how many dress up nights there are so you can pack clothes for that.

Ok, since it is a 4 night cruise, chances are, there will be one formal night. When dh and I went on our cruise in June, we just packed a nice dress for me and a nice pair of slacks and a button up shirt for him. Some people go all out on formal night and wear tuxes and ball gowns. As far as other clothes go, we just packed shorts, capris, bathing suits, and our everday shirts, and pj's and undies lol. I would make sure your kids have plenty of entertainment, Ipods, dvd player, books etc. The ship should have a club for the teens to go to and a place for your younger kids to hang out at during the day.


Be sure you pack all the toiletries you need, Shampoo, conditioner, sunscreen, deodorant etc. they do have that stuff on the ship but it is REALLY expensive! Be sure you bring a camera and plenty of batteries or a charger, We brought a collapsible clothes hamper to put in our coset and that helped to keep our room clean. Also pack a power strip. I'm not sure which cruise line you are taking but Carnival ony has one plug in in the room and that power strip was a lifesaver! and the most important thing, be sure you have al of your travel documents, including passports if you have them, birth certificates if you don't, ID's, and your cruise documents.


Ummm, that's all I can think of right now, but I'm sure there is more! LOL if you have any questions, feel free to ask! oh and have fun!!!
