Either is my mother. I know European airlines are infamous for losing luggage, I am not going to risk it. I would rather know I have some clothes and do with less than risk losing it all.

We have no real connections. We fly Atlanta to Paris and then do car and train after that so... assuming it gets to Paris we will be fine. And we have a week before the cruise if something does happen.

I just told my 15 year old daughter, and she looked at me with the most insane look and said it wasn't possible! I told her she was going to be limited to 4 pair of shoes and you would have thought I told her she wasn't coming on the trip at all!!!

I don't personally know, but if you dont' get an answer the most logical thing is to check which airline(s) use New Jersey as a hub to Europe. I think AA does.

We've been to Europe a few times and this trip will be our first and only trip where we're checking luggage (I have 2 kids). I have only ever brought carry-ons. So this will be interesting for us.

To be safe, I'm not putting any of our clothes/shoes/underwear or necessary items in the checked luggage. It's all diapers, baby formula and other "nonsense" that can be bought there if needed. We'd considered just buying formula there but my DD2 is on Alimentum which is "special" and can't be purchased there.

If they lose it, she's gonna try soy for the first time. Cue the explosive diapers.

Your way too nice, my daughter has been limited to three - dress, walking and deck shoes.

Yes, my teens are also limited to three pairs of shoes. They do survive. I have noticed that they do occasionally slip an extra pair of flip flops or Toms in their carry-on. We generally travel with two checked bags for four people. Having experienced having to keep track of a total of 8 bags -once-, I will never, ever, ever do that again.

We are carry on people. No checked luggage. If we can't carry it, it's not going!

Whew! Just read all 28 pages of this thread!
We're on the Magic August 10 from Barcelona.

I've been sucking up all the info I can find about DIY. We are a family of four (mom, dad, 16DD and 13DD) traveling with my husband's parents and his brother. My inlaws have done the DCL Med cruise before.

We're planning a private tour in VilleFranche but DIY in all the Italian ports. I'm even rethinking the French port....

Had to laugh at the comments about teenaged daughters. I have one who would wear the same clothes the entire time, and one that shudders in horror if you mention wearing an outfit more than once. Seriously thinking about COO, too.

See you onboard! We're on the 4 nighter before it too, can't wait.
We've done 3 Med cruises now, or is it 2? Who knows, anyway .. we love them. Great weather and only a short hop of 2 hours flying for us to Barca!

Can highly recommend www.yourtourinitaly.com for Rome. They do other cities too, think it's either Pisa or Naples but their website has the details. We had 42 people with them in 2011 and they were excellent.

See you onboard!!

Welcome! Have you found Tom's Port Guides yet for DIY? He "publishes" them on the internet for free and includes photo step by step how tos for the most popular ports (except for our La Spezia one).

Google it and it will come up. Super helpful. Hope you guys have a great time on your cruise!

We live in Europe, have flown hundreds of times all over and have never lost one piece of luggage. Do you know for a fact that 'we' lose more or are you just trying to worry people?

ANY airline can lose luggage, please don't try to worry people about European ones being worse than any in the US or Canada.

Actually you will discover the European airlines actually enforce their carry on rules. And that means a large number of Americans who 'thought' they had carry on actually don't. (Remember airlines measure wheels and handles, luggage companies don't )
