Gdjoslin(Gary):
I got my Bi-Pap machine early this year. I will take it on a cruise for the first time next month. It sure must be a hassle. I will have to bring the distilled water; and the vinegar to clean it out. I bet it will be a heavy burden. I have seen those cute travel-size C-Pap machines people take on their trips. I sure would like to have one of those. Anyway, I'll have to see what happens.

My husband uses a C-Pap. Spiritfilled, it's a machine that ensures that someone with sleep apnea receives enough oxygen while asleep. It's delivered through a mask that covers the nose and mouth. There are specific instructions for the placement of the machine relative to the bed so that it works properly.

So, we travel with a long extension cord, too.

My suggestions are:

    Clothing that doesn't wrinkle easily
    Several Swimsuits for each person going
    Sunblock
    Camera and extra batteries[/list]A little pouch to hang around your neck when going on excursions(they give away little clear hanging things to put your sail and sign card in) the only problem with those is, they don't secure your cash or passport. My husband and I got the little cloth pouches and they were very conveinent.
    Hope this helps, have fun!!!!!!!!

Rhonda66, we have a waterproof one that we got through Amex. It is large enough for a credit card, cruise card, and some cash. They have them in dive shops and on board, but ours seem to be a little smaller than the ones I've seen elsewhere. They're great because we're always snorkeling. If y'all are beach people, try to find one. You'll love it. I bring a disposable camera, wear my pouch, and wear inexpensive water shoes. So when I go into the water, I don't worry about leaving my stuff unattended on the beach. Maybe we've been lucky so far, or maybe no one's been interested in inexpensive stuff, but we've never had a problem.

Bring Pepto or Immodium - - - if you go to the Infirmary with a tummy-ache, they'll err on the side of caution and presume you have Norvovirus. Also, don't forget a small emergency sewing kit & eye glass repair kit

I bring masking tape. In case of rough seas, some drawers or cabinets often bang open and closed, and that is annoying. Masking tape is an easy solution.
