LOTION! I'm sensitive to a lot of fragrances, so I always bring my own lotion.
Cotton balls
Cotton swabs
alcohol wipes?
Sunscreen
aloe vera in case of a burn

I second sunscreen (you'll need more than you think) as well as something for sunburn.

And, definately, Immodium

I also pack a small container of meat tenderizer. Great for neutralizing all kinds of stings; bee, jelly fish, sea lice etc.

I think we'll be fine with the provided lotion. I have q-tips and sunscreen in a different section of my list (pre-cruise bag for park day!), but the aloe vera & cotton balls are a great suggestion!

I have read you need bug spray for the ruins tour in Mexico. If you are only doing water excursions you should not need it unless someone is allergic to bug bites. (I am but have never needed it in 12 cruises)

I never go anywhere...

...without these items since getting the worse stomach flu ever over the Disney Marathon weekend 1/2011--

Acetaminophen suppositories--comes in different strengths for different ages
Emetrol anti-nausea syrup--to help calm the vomiting
Gatorade powder
--to help restore the electrolytes and avoid dehydration
White noise app on iPod or iPhone--to concentrate on during the misery in hotel room or ship cabin

The rest of your list looks good--don't forget Epi-Pen if needed for allergies!

Good health to all!

A needle and tweezer. I got a tiny shell stuck in my toe at the beach. It wasn't painful, but was very annoying until i got it out.

I know it is not technically a first aid item, i would pack a small nail scissor. I used mine several times on our cruise.
