Don't know if this has been done...but for those of us that are newbies....what have you forgotten to take with you on the cruise that you won't make that mistake again!

Or just things you have to always take no matter what!

SUNSCREEN and a lot of it. I usually go through 2 full bottles for four people on a seven day. The sun is brutal.
Every cruise is a learning experience. A bungee cord for the balcony door is a new one for me. A'ndrea

Don't forget a camera, clothes for the formal nights and travel insurance. Most of all don't leave the passport at home or all the rest won't matter much.

Cheers, Neil

We remembered the sunscreen- washed off and got burned and had to buy $15.00 after sun cream/solarcaine in Nassau! YIKES. Bring some- just in case.

Be sure you have plenty of memory for your digital camera! Everything is so beautiful and exciting that you will want to take hundreds of pictures.

We have rain ponchos that have come in handy several times. You can buy them at a dollar store and they fit into quart-sized baggies. When we go on certain land excursions I take a canvas backpack and place stuff in that like the ponchos, camera memory, medications, sunscreen, anti-bacterial hand cleaner, island information, etc. It is lightweight and so handy!

Before our last cruise, I read in this forum about buying one of those shoe bags that hang over the door. I bought one for a dollar at the Dollar Tree and it was great. It is going on all of our future cruises. It is mesh and doesn't take up any room in the luggage. I hung it on the clothing hooks on the back of the bathroom door and it held most of our toiletries, keeping the limited counter space free of clutter.

Shelby, absolutely. Sunscreen is very expensive on the ship. Panama Jack SPF 45 Expedition Strong, 8 oz. for $10.00. That's why we buy and bring 2 from home.
We bring 2-40 g.b. memory cards, plus 2 waterproof cameras.

If you have an older camera, pack extra batteries - we had to buy some in a little grocery store in Mexico because the ship's store had only batteries for newer cameras. If you were glasses, a little eyeglass repair kit. A little travel sewing kit - it's a real bummer when a button falls off. Chewable Pepto - you don't want to go to the ship's infirmary with a tummy ache - they may determine it's NORO Virus and take appropriate action.
