4 Tips for Cruising

It is cruise time for some of my friends.  People always, always, always pack too much.

  1. Take only one suitcase for clothes and stuff and one small carry on. Store the suitcase under the bed so the tiny cabin will have more room. Use the suitcase for dirty laundry to keep the room and closet clean and ready to go.
  2. Pack a cup, an alarm clock, an extension cord or power strip, and a shoe organizer to hold all the little bits.
  3. Buy drink tickets.
  4. If you are not a morning person, use room service for breakfast.  It doesn’t cost anything more and it’s great to start the morning on the balcony looking over the ocean instead of over crowded buffet goers.
