We could have packed less, no need to worry about being seasick......and it is okay to miss something! Get ready for the time of your lives.

the piano bar is a great place to hang out

we brought too many clothes!! my man brought a weeks worth of socks he never wore, haha. and did i bring way too many pairs of shoes?! it's hard.. but i try now to limit myself to three.

also.. bring a large chip clip to cinch the window drapes.. they don't close completely on their own and you will be sleeping way past dawn. i bring an eye-mask and earplugs, as well. when ya do sleep you do not want to be disturbed, imo.

i bring ginger capsules just in case for those rocky days at sea. only got sea sick once in 7 yrs but it Sucked big time... so i take precations.

have FUN!!

if you even think you will get seasick - go immediately to sickbay soon as we leave port and on the door will be a container of seasick pills. start taking immediately! bring 4 days of clothes - on day 4 early - smush all dirty in the laundry bag - I feel the need to bring dirty laundry on board because the ships laundry does such a great job. Even got the red wine out of the white t-shirts. and stuff gets ironed better than I could ever do it.
PS - no one will even notice you are wearing same clothes for the rest of the week!

Bring a mug or insulated cup to carry water around and drink lots of it! The ships water if very good, no need to bring bottled water in my opinion.

One more thing, plan to stay up late late at least one night, catch the pro jam, come down to the piano bar, just wander around and see what's happening. I suggest you do it fairly early in the cruise, 'cause you may discover you want to do it again... and again. Take naps, don't drink too much, sleep when you get home, or on the flight home.

Have fun and see you soon!
