  1. The rest of the cruisers on our 4 day Bahamas cruise were very casual except for a few other couples like us who obviously like to dress for dinner. Hubby brought a sport jacket and two coordinating pants (sort of jean styled but in dressier fabrics) with 2 dress shirts and three different ties. I had a couple of classy-short cocktail dresses and a couple other cute ones that were not sun-type dresses. I don't take my good jewellery on any trips, I have semi precious stones to wear instead. I took a couple of wedge soled dress shoes/sandals as I have an unstable ankle from a previous injury and can't wear stilettos any more 😭. Other than that we packed the usual undies/socks, swimsuits, shorts, tops, sweaters (for air con), sport shoes and sandals. We also had jeans and rain jackets and a few other pieces with us because we were actually doing the cruise in the middle of a 2 week vacation on land. It all fit in our suitcases and carry-ons and in our RCL ocean view cabin, anyhow.
  2. Hubby and I took two heavy magnetic hooks and two battery op tea lights with us on our first cruise, as suggested by others on a First-Timers thread. They were the most useful things ever. Bathrooms are always so tiny in cabins (unless you pay the big bucks for large Owner's Suites, lol) so the magnets came in handy for our beach towels and assorted other stuff we didn't want to stow in the closet next to our dressy dinner/show outfits. They also held our daily activity plan on our bedroom wall under the TV so that paper didn't get shuffled around and lost. Hubby is an 'old guy' and has multiple bathroom needs in the middle of the night, and although we both can get around our home in total darkness, the tea lights in the bathroom with the door closed are just enough to find your way and do your business without injuring yourself on furniture. The other thing we always bring on any trip is our 4 station charging deck - both tablets (for downloaded books, and internet at free WiFi in ports) and my phone for emergencies and contact with family at free port WIFI spots.
  3. I love those sweet little boots, do you line dance or two step ShellBelle28? I think there are Western and Country Music themed cruises aren't there? Likely travelling out of Galveston I would think. The Mime et Moi pic didn't turn out, maybe because it's png and not jpg? I'll try again here. Yaaay, it worked
  4. Of course with Black Friday and Cyber Monday in the US there are shoe sales on all over. The Shoe Bakery has 30% off (not including custom jobs) at shoebakery.com if you use the code HOORAY30. Another really neat site is Mime et Moi (a German shoe company) with interchangeable heels you can buy separately. 30% off their shoes with code CCW30 https://mimemoi.com/en?mc_cid=46e4e0ceaf&mc_eid=345352789f Here's a picture of some to give you an idea: They are not cheap of course, but then you are getting two shoes for the price of one, and you can choose other coloured heels if you wish, like pink or cream for the above shoe. Some really neat combos I saw. Another online site with multi-heels is https://tanyaheathcanada.com/collections/shoes - they have some really good sales on right now and all heels fit all the shoes so you can contrast or match colours & patterns from kitten heel to boot/block to stiletto. Also this site is in CAD so lots cheaper for many.
  5. AuroraRose, I love the idea of those shoes with your wedding date on a plaque attached to them. Awesome! ShellBelle28, the big bow is a real focus in fashion these days.... I just got a cute pair of slides from Avon (clearing out summer stuff) for a really good price. Suitably nautical and sweet with navy capris.
