I've forgotten to pack Nightwear and swim suits one cruise. Fortunately we had a night's stay in WDW. So having a car drove over to the Disney store in Orlando premium outlet and bought discounted swim pants, T-shirts, night clothes. We also had to run over to the Nike store to get the swim tops since the Disney store didn't have everything. It was a very nice cheap shopping spree.
Another time I had forgotten a whole bag of clothes in the trunk of the car. Fortunately I had distributed clothes for my DD and I among the other suitcase I did remember to take.

On my first cruise I left my sun screen in the hotel I stayed in before the cruise.

You can dream, create, design and build the most wonderful place in the world, but it takes people to make the dream a reality.

I once bought disposable sippy cups to use instead of bottles on our cruise. As we pulled away from shore, I unpacked them to find they we actually snack cups!! I went into panic mode and we quickly had to teach our then baby how to drink from a straw.

My DD (2 at the time) slept with her crib aquarium, to the extent that we went to the trouble of taking the whole bulky thing with us. Wouldn't you know as we pulled out of the last port, with CC and day at sea ahead of us, the batteries went dead. None in the shops, none at guest services. None at CC the next day. Finally thought to check the kids clubs and they cheerfully sent us an 8 pack. We always checked batteries after that!!

So, what did you forget to pack?
Um, we forgot our 5 year old's bathing suit!!! She was in tears thinking she wouldn't be able to swim the whole trip. Luckily the gift shop had her size!

On our last cruise out of Venice I forgot underwear for myself. There are no targets in Venice! I ended up buying some VERY fancy frilly underwear because that's the only kind I could find in Venice!

On our last Disney vacation DH left behind his iPod. He had put 4 audio books and several music CD that he got from the local library plus Christmas music for the holidays on it; and he left it in our bedroom the morning we left. At the airport, I downloaded 2 Christmas CDs so we did have some holiday music to listen to in our cabin.

He also forgot to pack his "favorite" cup - a reuseable plastic cup with a screw-on lid that he was planning on using for soda. We ended up buying a tall insulated cup in the parks.
