SO, that's another story, he has a suitecase with just his electrical gadgets and camera stuff!
We took a very large suitcase with nothing but shoes!
I'm working on my packing strategy right now. It really is the shoes that give me the devil.
Let's see bathing suits, cover-ups, light weight/easy tote cruise casual outfits (2 to 3) such as a sundress, 2 to 3 pairs of shorts and shirts, formal wear. The electronics can get out of control too - camcorder, digital camera, batteries, chargers, laptop, etc. I'm down to camera, recharging packs and I must have the camcorder this trip otherwise it stays at home.
I found I don't need a lot of things mentioned on those cruise packing lists. Sunscreen, clothes, camera, money, something to easy to carry your essentials while in port (passport holder kind of thing), batteries for camera(s), medications and shoes. I'm still debating on the power strip. It did come in handy, but with a suite I'm debating if it's "necessary." Some cruiselines don't have self-serve laundry so I can see why some pack more clothes for those, but Princess does have them. While I don't like doing laundry while on vacation I found I can do a load or two here and there without it making me feel like I'm missing out. I also use the ship laundry service and budget accordingly in addition to self serve. If you don't use rush service it really isn't badly priced.
I haven't found a need for duck tape though the possibilities are endless. I feel if it becomes necessary I can probably wave down a fellow CC'er and ask for some.
I'm sure someone would be happy to oblige.
