For those of you interested, the trick for smuggling adult bevages on board: I drink a lot of bottled water at home/work. I save the bottles fill them with rum. When packing I find that they fit nicely inside my shoes. This does not take up any extra space and keeps your shoes from being bent up. I also take along a package of crystal light packets to mix in my drink!

I will never iron on a cruise ship again! No need too! Two words: SPRAY STARTCH! At night just before bed I will decide what I am wearing the next day lightly spray ithang it up and go to bed. Before I leave the cabin in the morning I will do the same thing to my dinner clothes! I have found this to be a HUGE time saver for me!

Most every "extra" that I bring on cruises has already been mentioned. My faves are:

power strip and/or extension cord
clear over the door shoe hanger
air freshener spray
hightlighter to mark Navigator activities
assorted size ziplock backs
decorations and dry erase board for door
$1 bills for room service tips

3. whiteboard - my oldest DS was able to come and go from Ocean Quest as he pleased and this helped us to inform him of where Mom and Dad were at any given time - also allowed him to leave us messages like "Mom - stopped by and you weren't here - gone to drink station to get a soda - be right back"
4. Sunblock
5. Hairdryer - some will tell you that the one in the stateroom is fine - and for some it is - but I found that I really needed my "tornado"
6. One of those pop-up type laundry hampers comes in handy when on a 7 day cruise - for the shorter cruises we just re-used plastic bags from the gift shops for our dirty laundry.

After that - things that aren't necessary - but we were happy to have (but we drove down to Port Canaveral which made this easy)
1. Beer
2. Wine
3. Bottled water

I can't think of anything else.
You can bring beer and wine on the ship?

You have to take it on board in your carry-on bags. It can't be checked with your other luggage as it may break and ruin not only your luggage but other's as well. There's info on here somewhere....

Found it. This comes straight from DCL.
http://disneycruise.disney.go.com/fa...ge-containers/

"Alcohol is permitted on board. However, be aware that any fragile items (including bottled alcohol) must be hand-carried on board in a day bag and/or carry-on bag, the dimensions of which cannot exceed 22" wide, 14" high and 9" deep. Guests who request a Wine Steward to open and serve a bottle of champagne, wine or liquor that has been brought onboard will be charged a corking fee of $18.00 per bottle.
Please be advised: Disney Cruise Line reserves the right to remove fragile items (including beverages) from luggage. In such cases, items will be stored and returned at the end of the voyage. Beverage containers are considered fragile and have previously caused damage in checked luggage. All fragile items must be transported inside carry-on luggage."

favorite item

A push button key chain flashlight for each of my kids. They keep this with them in bed in case they need to get up during the night. It is only on if they are holding down the button. A few dollars at Walmart.
