Thank you amaf1123. We are really looking forward to it.
Spending time in Florida with my daughter so I've done some selective adding to my cruise wardrobe. Easy to pack has never been more important.
I bought a new rolling duffle last fall and I'm beginning to think I made a mistake. We now have to do self disembark for a excursion and I'm not sure a hard side wouldn't have been easier. Samsonite now has a new line where the suitcase is wider rather than taller. So imagine a tall suitcase turned on its side. Much easier to roll. It's just really expensive. Giving it allot of thought.

What a good idea! I am so meticulous about planning everything but I never thought about planning clothes for each day. We are traveling with a 2 year old so this could be life changing. We have 54 days until our next cruise. We sailed last year in May and we were married on the ship! I must have brought my whole closet and our room was a mess

I have started planing my clothing too. I also take a picture of each outfit for future reference.

Finding this thread has been a relief for me... I thought I was crazy since I started planning outfits for our next cruise as soon as it was booked. I'm glad I'm not the only one!

I've been laying them out and taking photos just to keep my mind from swirling at all the possibilities.

Today I'm trying on things for my travel day - an all day affair from Canada to Ft. Lauderdale. My grey pants are a must as they are tailored soft, stretchy material that looks dressy while feeling like track pants. The top, well, that has been harder.

38 days till we leave for Eastern and then Western Caribbean.

p.s. I've gone back and read the ancient history on this post.

Lasparrot. Grey pants, hmm, turquoise or coral tops, of course you can always do black. Good luck
