what to pack?

Has anyone here sailed this time of year before?? Do I pack summer clothes?? I know we will need warm clothes when we get on and then off the ship in Galvestion, but what about sea days and Cozumel? I looked at weather for cozumel and its from 75 to 83 degrees and water temp will be around 80. I'm at a loss as to what typ of clothes to pack?

We will pack spring clothes (cropped cargo pants). We also learned to always pack a light jacket....those theaters can get chilly at night. It's easy to over pack but please don't....I had to force my boys to change outfits.

Light sweater

I always pack a light sweater or light jacket to wear at dinner. Animators and Parrot Cay (the restaurants at the rear of the ship are always chilly to me.) They are also the places where I feel the most " motion" of the ship. I always wear my "sea bands" in those restaurants. FYI. I bought my sea bands on amazon because they are half the price that they are on the ship. Sherry

Not sure if y'alls two year olds are potty trained or not, but only potty trained kids are allowed in the pools. There is supposed to be a splash zone near the mickey pool for kids who are not potty trained, though.

The suggestions about sweaters are spot on. Another we do is pack mostly t-shirts for during the day and pack a couple of white or black long sleeve t-shirts to wear under them in case it's cold that day. Of course, I have boys and their wardrobes are a lot easier to deal with!!!

I am thinking about getting me and DH a day pass to the Rainforest room one day. Anyone ever been? How is it?

Also, how formal are we supposed to go for the "dress up" night? Ties and Jackets for men? How about for little boys? --Katie

DD is 2.5 and potty training is not going well so we booked an hour in the morning and a hour at dinner time. whether she'll stay there is another question. we were just planning on taking it day by day as she loves the pool/splash area. maybe we can arrange for play time together. I think there are others with 3 year olds as well.

what to pack

I always seem to over pack, and was planning on light pants with a light jacket. It's easier to layer than have heavy clothes. of course I'll bring shorts also.

we're also planning on brining our pirate outfits. DH and I were pirates for halloween and DD was a parrot.

The sea bands come in twos and I wear them pretty much all the time. I never feel queasy just wobbly knees. I think it is all in my brain! Sherry
