Did I forget to say?:
WELCOME TO CRUISECHAT.COM!
Anyway, I just thought of a few more important things:
[list]Bring some comfortable walking shoes; these cruise ships tend to be huge, especially newer ones. And that's just starters to all the walking you will do at your port of call.
Bring a multistrip electrical outlet (like what your computer has). On my cruises in the past, I discover there is only one place to plug something in and I mean one place (electrical outlets usually have two places; one on top of the other). So you will need a multistrip outlet if you have allot of electrical/electronic things to plug-in and not just your heated hair curlers.
So that's all for now. Maybe more to come. Take care and have a great time on your first cruise!
