    Packing help!

    We will be leaving for a 7 day cruise in the Carribean August 5th. I have a pretty good idea of what I need to bring clothes-wise, but I'm not sure what other essential items I will need to pack. Any seasoned travellers out there with some advice for me?

    Re: Packing help!

    When we went on our cruise I too was worried and so I found this great site of cruise packing tips:

    http://www.cruise-links.com/PackingLists.htm

    Also something many people are not aware of is that the night before you can order a light breakfast to be delivered to your room at whatever time you say for just the cost of a tip. After our second day I figured this out and no longer had to get ready in the morning without my coffee. You are going to have a blast.

    Hi Sunny.

    Have a great time! I got most of my info from a website called cruisecritic.com. They have thread specifically on what to bring. Also you can get answers about the cruiseline, the ship you are going on and the destinations you are going to.

    Enjoy!

    Bring $1 and $2 bills for your tips. We used room service quite a bit for snacks and such. Depending on how big of the order, we would tip a couple dollars.
    Also, comfortable shoes! You end up doing heaps of walking on the ship! I lost weight (even with all the food) because of all the walking! (Take stairs instead of the elevator, etc).
    Also, maybe some rain gear. You may hit a tropical storm in the summer!
    Have fun! And I also used Cruisecritic.com when I went on my cruise.
