What's in your carry on?

Trying to get my packing figured out, which is proving more difficult than I originally thought since we'll have 2 days in FL before embarkation day.

My plan is to pack 1 suitcase for us all for those 2 days, leaving most of it in the car when we board with the exception of our toiletries and such that we'll need for the cruise.

I'm trying to figure out what needs to be in our carry ons as opposed to our luggage. What do you put in your carry on?

My advice is to pack a small bag for toiletries and make sure you sleep that into your cruise carry on. Make sure sun-block, swim-suits and change for dinner if early seating. Also IDs and passports/documents.

Travel documents. Swim suits & change of underwear. Basic toiletries (deodorant, toothbrush, paste, brush). Any beverages we want to bring. Electronics (ipod, clock, cameras). Light jacket, if I'm not wearing it. Clean shirt. Medications.

My cruise carry on tote only contains bathsuit and coverup for DD, sunscreen, toiletries that I don't trust in checked luggage, documents and passports, and alcohol. We found during on our past three cruises that was all we needed. By the time we board, stop at GS, stop at spa/gym, and have lunch our room is ready. We then change DD into her bathsuit and she will play in the Mickey Pool or go to the club open house until muster drill. By then the checked luggage has arrived.

  • Toiletries
  • IDs
  • Travel documents
  • Any medications
  • Camera and accompanying "stuff" needed
  • Jewelry / Other valuables
  • Swim suit (if you want to swim before your room is ready)
  • Clothes for that evening (in case your bag is one of the very last to get delivered -- learned the hard way on that one!)
  • Wallet
  • Cell phone / charger
  • Alcohol that you plan to bring on the ship
  • Anything else that you absolutely must have if you never see your checked bag
