Hey yall! We are cruising Feb.19 on the Mariner and I have just a few questions. We are bringing our 9 and 10 year olds and I am not sure how to pack for this. Are each of us allowed a carry on and a purse or backpack? So my husband could carry on the garment bag with our formal wear, I could roll on an airline approved carry on and the children could bring their backpacks IN ADDITION to the larger suitcases that we check? I know this seems silly to most of you, but with two children this age I have learned to always be prepared.
I also wanted clarification on medical services on the ship. Will there be medical Drs. on the ship that can issue antibiotics should the need arise? There seems to be bronchitis going around school and I would hate to get to sea and need something like that for the kids. Last question, what is the appropriate attire for children on casual night in the dining room? Thanks in advance for your responses!!! We are so EXCITED. Any tips or information in addition will be GREATLY appreciated!!!!
