Ok. I'm EXCITED!!!!!!!! Is there a Standard & generally accepted quantity list of what ladies should bring on a 7 day cruise? ---- as in quantity? 2-3 pairs of shoes/sandals? ok. i can do sandals, even on big walking excursions. i think i've ruled out tennies. i'm 40 - but still lucky - without too bad lingering pains in back/legs yet !!!!!! Considering dinners, where we plan to dress "decently"- as they ask & very few formal lunches & breakfasts - 000000 let's face it, we'll normally do the BUFFET lunch & bkfst------can you suggest the correct # of items? It may be hard to say, since items should mix & match, BUT i HATE pantyhose. I MIGHT wear ONE pair????? maybe. Anyway --- 1 Formal Dress 1 Semi Formal Dress 3-4 Dress/Capri Outfits????? do you think that's TOO much or about right? Can you hazard a guess on Top/Short outfits? - that's ALL I'd wear on a regular day - at sea & on land. I WILLNOT wear something that's been thoroughly sweated upon a second time. But then i'm not opposed to doing tub laundry on the 1st/2nd day & letting it dry on a hook in the room- to wear later in the week. i plan to do a few undies/bras that way - as i will not wear a bra a 2nd sweaty day. it must be clean. Is this crazy to ask? I'm SURE it's been broached on a thread before! I want to be a compact traveler & always try not to bring too much --- but i have this common germ/sweat phobia & hate to wear things over & over!!!!!! I'm going to begin packing in 2 days, so i'm happy to hear any advice! EWTBAC!!!!
