I was able to buy a beautiful shorter dress this weekend, so no gowns for me this time. But now I think I'm overpacking by bringing two formal dresses, two semi (one for Palo), another dress cuz I like it (haha), and one pair of pants with three nice tops.

Are you gals bringing that much??? I feel like it's too much, but I can't recycle four things for 14 days!
So far I have 6 cocktail dresses with another 2 as maybes with 2 3/4 length trousers and 7 tops all laid out always take too much. Spare bedroom looks like a jumble sale ttxx

We were on a Princess cruise and it was a shore excursion! Well, for sure we checked it out before booking!

Not motivated!

I've been doing everything EXCEPT what I ought. Instead of thinking about THIS trip that begins in 9 days, I'm tweaking travel plans in Jan/Feb and June 2014! (Okay - I really don't want to exercise, either! )

Signing up for the candy exchange helped motivate me. I hate to pack, have not done that yet.

I am a travel bug, too! I am taking a break from packing and repacking (I really suck at estimating weight) and looking at flights/car for Aug and Xmas.

I'm pretty sure you can prepay gratuities into next week sometime. I think my TA had told me up to 3 days before.

But you can always wait and do it on board as well. We did it that way last fall.

I dread packing ... not quite sure how to pack for a 2 week cruise, then 8 days of a fairly rugged Ireland tour (surely there is an REI in Dublin?), then 10 days "exploring" either London, Scotland, Norway or Austria? Guess I'd better figure it out REALLY QUICK!

But ... I *do* plan on packing one floor length and one cocktail gown :-)

And of course my tiara, which I intend to don while in an Irish pub!

All into a 27.5" suitcase and one carry on .... I see a game of Tetris in the near future.
