Other Miscellaneous Items

Over the Door Shoe Organizer - This can be very useful for storing your toiletries and
other miscellaneous items, typically there is not a lot of room for storage so bringing one of these
onboard can help tremendously with keeping your room clutter free!

Heavy Duty Zip Lock Bags - Remember if you are packing anything liquid in your bags such as shampoo,
mouthwash, etc. to put them in a heavy duty zip lock bag! Your luggage attendants are about as gentle with
your bags as a bull is with red color objects! Having your liquid items covered in a strong zip lock bag
will ensure that your clothes make it through the journey without getting ruined!

Garbage Bags - Bringing a garbage bag is a great way to keep your dirty clothes separate from your
clean clothes; this will also help keep your room from getting cluttered!

Toiletries for Cruise

Carry-on Bag

Keep all Prescription Medication with you in your carry-on bag.

If you plan to get into the pools or hot tub as soon as you get on ship (they will be open), bring
those clothes in your carry-on bag; your other luggage may not get to your cabin until
much later in the afternoon.

You may want to bring your MP3 Player/charger/headphones, and a couple books to read.

Don't forget your Camera with its charger and extra battery.
And most importantly Bring SUNSCREEN!
