mom bought me a little battery powered alarm clock. It goes with me every cruise to wake me up from my nap's. also a small flashlight just incase the ship flips over and you have to find your way out in the dark and upside down, the lights prolly dont stay on when that happens like in the movies.

Mr. October - and you know the lights don't stay on because....???? Wouldn't you need snorkel equipment if the ship turns upside down!!!

I have been writing stuff down for my "must take list" and here are some things I have received from other threads.

First Aid Kit: sm flashlight, Calamine lotion, benedryl, Insect spray, pepto tablets, Aleve/advil, Aloe with lidocaine, Imodium, dramamine, Sarna, Bullfrog sunscreen, etc.
Bungee Cord
Disposable underwater camera
water shoes
extra batteries
Power Strip/extension cord for room
Over the door shoe holder for extra storage
ziploc bags for wet clothes, sea shells, liquid bottles
mini collapsable cooler to take on excursions
Highlighter to highlight The Caper
Post It notes to leave for other family members
Travel size laundry detergent
Walkie Talkies
Small Waterproof card/money holder
Travel alarm clock
Insulated mug for drinks

And I am looking for some type of pop-up sun shade/tent I can use for my young son and I for the beach. We are well...CASPER white and need to provide some sort of shade for ourselves. Hat and sunscreen are most likely just not going to be enough!!!!

Another thing - - - for your water/ice tea, you'll want to pack a plastic glass. The ones on board will only be 6oz at the most - makes for multiple trips for tea...

Your signifcant other, an extension cord, one or all of your kids, your cruise docs (the happy dance is just not enough to get you on board)and your identification! A fun-loving, devil may care attitude; don't sweat the small sh**!

Of course bailing wire and duct tape goes without saying, right?

Is there topless bathing in Costa Maya or Grand Caymans? Ihave never been there before and the cruise I will be taking will be going to these places, posibbly Turks and Caicos, depends on the cruise I book. But the Caymans are a must.
Are there palm trees to sit under? Whats it like at the port destinations? I can't wait until we get to go.

No sweating small s***, got it!


All beaches are topless and of course women are there too. I go topless all the time but it's not a pretty sight.

Seriously though, are you a woman who wants to go topless or a man who wants to see topless women? The answer to this will determine my response.

Since it's in the category of "what you never want to forget to take with you", I'll make the assumption that you don't want to take a bikini top.

There are only three things I really, really, really triple check before I walk out the door on the way to my cruze and they are:

1) passport

2) credit cards

3) cash

Everything else is purchasable.
