Along with the spare glasses, if you don't already have one or use one, one of those eyeglass holder strings . . If you're like me, the glasses are always sliding down the nose - and there is a lot of leaning over the rails in Alaska

I always take several Ziploc bags in different sizes. Seems like I always need them for something!

Also bring a couple travel-sized packs of baby wipes. A must-have when doing tours and no soap and water are available.

This one is only good if you are driving to your cruise port... After our last cruise, it was decided that for our next one, we are bringing a couple of rolls of a toilet paper from home. The stuff they use on the ship is like a Texan- rough and tough and doesn't take crap from anyone....

Seriously though... The plastic shoe "holder" for the back of the door is a good idea. We have been bringing one for the last 4 cruises I think. It really helps keep the clutter down and the cabin organized. We found that we can hang it on inside of the closet door so that it is not "out in the room". Very handy.

I actually laughed out loud at that too!

I don't know if Dave's baby wipes covered this, but take along some individual antibacterial wet ones. I also take those small bottles of hand sanitizer. I take a small can of lysol too for the bathroom. I know, here I go with my germ phobia again.

We have to bring an extention cord for hubby's CPAP (breathing) machine. The cord on the machine will not reach from the bed to the outlet.

I've used the hair dryers on board for years and never had a bit of trouble. One time I had one go out. I called the purser's office and within an hour had a new one. Before chemo, my hair was down to my waist and the hair dryers on board worked great.
