What did you wish you would have done or bought when you were on your cruise?

What did you forget, aside from the normal stuff, or wish you would have had once you were on the ship?

A large travel mug for my wife's coffee. Trying to walk around with a regular cup can be difficult.

A power strip is also a good idea. On our first cruise, we were fighting between curling iron, hair dryer and electric razor.

As for what i wish I would have done. On our last cruise, Alaska, we did a float plane in ketchican. It was our last port. After doing one, I wish we would have done it at all of them.

This may sound strange, but I wish we had purchased our embarkation photo on every cruise. Of our 20+ cruises, we have all but 2 photos -- I'm pretty sure we didn't buy them as we felt one or both of us did not photograph well. I certainly wish we had them now so that our collection would be complete.

Bought a back-to-back.

Right, Chucksok's got the wining answer!!!. "A back-to-back". I'll 2nd that motion

I forgot my dress shoes once and I had to dine in formality with sneakers, noone noticed (or at least no one said anything). I'm such a rebel!

On my first cruise I forgot my Norelco electric razor. So I had to use the plastic Bics and shaving cream, as a result my face bled allot.

I sleep in my white underwear T-Shirts. I forgot to pack them on my second cruise(no underwear for sale onboard nor in port). So, I had to sleep in my lightweight dress shirts . It felt unusual, but I had to get used to it.

On my first cruise, I should have spent money on those interesting wood carvings in the Straw Market in Nassau. Regetably, I fell for those pushy street vendors/hustlers and bought a bunch of junk T-Shirts and other crap. Next time I will polity say "No" and keep walking.

On my second cruise, I was in Cozumel. I regret not buying anything made of silver. They had good prices for silver there (and elsewhere in Mexico, I guess). Now, a year later, I am sure the prices on silver have gone up. Also, I should have bought my booze there. And I should have bought an extra bottle of Vanilla extract for one of my friends at home who does a lot of baking. The vanilla they sell in Mexico is the real stuff and allot better than the stuff you would find in your local supermarket.
