K, I'm packing the whole thing. Only weighs ounces and I'm probably over with all the alcohol and FE anyway, so.....

Hahaha.

If you haven't prepaid before getting on the ship, they seem to add them onto your onboard account these days on a daily basis - It drives me mad - I don't want to prepay, I want to judge the service myself and tip accordingly, which I prefer to do in cash.

The last 3 cruises I have had to go to Guest Services and ask them to cancel the accruing tips.

I have 2 opinions
We had tried usual things to keep them away, including something like coyote urine, it is sold in hardware stores by us

I'm packing in a similar fashion. A few neutral staple pieces with some colorful tops to mix and match. I will be doing laundry too.

mmmmmm chicken fingers xoxo
I love them!

I am re-packing. Carry on size bag but I will be checking it. I have been purging my closets for goodwill and I kept a few things for the cruise and I will discard them on the last day! If you like anything I am wearing you can inquire if its from the goodwill bag and you can have it - lol

I can see the ease of touring in the UK after you've been in Ireland, but you'll need to book a flight or two if you decide on Austria or Norway.

I had kind of a similar packing dilemma last May/June. My DH and I were in Rome and Florence for 6 days, followed by a 12-night Italy & Croatia cruise. When that ended, my DH went home, and I spent a week in Germany, followed by a 12-night Norway cruise to the Arctic Circle. I packed for Norway as I packed for Alaska - in layers. I also sent my little black dress home with my hubby for the second half of my trip.

Thumbs up Little Tip !

Day one tip,

All of the talk of packing reminds me of a little tip. One of the first things I do is to take out the items needing pressed for formal night and hand them to the stateroom host. It's half the cost of washing and takes the hassle out of waiting for the iron on formal night. They are generally returned on the morning of formal night.

I will be enroute in the air 7 days today
