I could send you my list of things I forgot to buy at Target today for our cruise that leaves on Sunday!

Double check for things you wanted to bring (camera memory cards, shoes, sunscreen, OTC medications). Confirm your hotel reservations on the night before/after cruise. Stop mail or papers?

I need to go and unload about half the stuff I have packed.

Take something to get characters to sign (via the front desk). We took a big photo mat this time and got tons of signatures. Ironically, we also had a pillow case to get signed, and it got MUCH fewer signatures.

We are also of the crowd that crams a small suitcase full of bottled water. I guess we are water snobs (rather than using the bathroom faucet as our source or walking up to the pool deck to get water from the fountain drink machines), but it's nice to be able to open the fridge in the room and find some water at anytime of the day. It also gives us a spare suitcase to fill with all of that DCL merchandise that has a tendency to find its way into our room throughout the week!

Also, we just got off the Fantasy on Saturday morning and realized I had quite a few clothing items that never saw the light of day. I guess it's better to overpack than underpack, but next time I will hopefully remember that nobody needs three separate outfits for each day (swim, shorts and dinner). You might change three or more times a day, but sometimes it might only be for a couple of hours, so something can be worn more than once. If you're looking over your suitcase and thinking, "is this too much?"....it probably is!

Have a great trip!
