I leave in a week for the Mexican Rivera. Anyone have a packing list so I don't forget anything?

Keep in mind that even though you're going to Mexico, the trip down and back can be cool, even cold this time of year. Take a few warm things so you don't have to buy $35 sweatshirts in the gift shop. Take lots of batteries and film or memory cards. Photographic services on the ships are very expensive.
Don't forget a power strip and bungee cord.
Oh, yeah; have a GREAT cruise!

As f-mattox said, photographic services of any kind are very expensive on the ships. If you intend to snorkle or do any water excursions, you might want to bring a waterproof, disposable camera with you. I picked a few up at Target for under $10 each (on sale), and they took great photos of our stingray encounter.

Also, if you drink a lot of water, you might want to bring bottled water with you.

And, I'm sure you'll bring cash with you, but you might want to make sure you have some $1s and $5s with you for tips and such.

Have fun!

Chris

I found this one on about.com. I selected, copied and then pasted to a Word document so I could edit it and changed all the dots to check off boxes. Have a great trip. As you can see below, we're only a week away ourselves.
