We are doing our first cruise in October. DH, DS17, DD14 and DD7 This is pretty much our first family vacation other than annual camping trip and long-weekends here and there. When we camp we basically take half the house. I cannot fathom how in the world I can take everything we need without renting our own private jet and maybe three or four staterooms. . . but really . . .we have formal night, halloween, pirate night, 7 days worth of nice dinner wear, multiple swim suits for each kid, 7 days of regular clothes etc. Any great tips/tricks? Will we miss out if we don't do formal night? or pirate night? Is halloween for kids only or everyone? What's the best time to do laundry? Oh my gosh, I am getting more stressed just typing it all out.
