    We used safety tats on a trip back east once, and they did not stay on because of the humidity. Had to use two or three a day. New solution? Sharpie. No joke. Doesn't sweat off!

    Glad you mentioned this. Doesn't look like it's on the list of prohibited item. I actually have a camping fan, runs on D batteries, think I will stick this in my suitcase just in case.

    1. Downy wrinkle release travel size - awesome - buy 2
    2. Lysol for stinkies and to spray luggage (anti norovirus)
    3. Travel blow dryer. Ones on the Dream were lousy; Fantasy not much better
    4. Glow in the dark necklaces for Pirate night
    5. Boxed movie theatre candy-a must if you have late dinner seating
    6. Insulated water bottles - worked great esp on castaway cay and at sea days - pack with ice and fill with water and it will stay cold all day
    7. Baggie of tide pods and dryer sheets - 7 days - you will want to do laundry
    8. Garment bags. We bought inexpensive 'Wally bags' from Amazon.com. Sooo much easier to open bag and already have everything on a hanger. We used huggable hangers and they double your space.
    9. Sharpies in a Baggie with a matte and/or with a pillow case for the characters to sign. Just leave at guest services
    10. Extra baggies of assorted sizes to pack liquids for return home
    11. Cheap toothbrushes and travel size toothpaste. Throw them out when leaving.
    12. Crystal light packets, or similar. Also gatorade packets. Can really liven up water. Add lemonade packet to unsweetened iced tea. Gatorade helps with norovirus induced dehydration
    13. Children's Tylenol - someone's child will get sunburned

    We didn't use the over door hanger either. No need. Love the suction cup idea for the shower:)

    We use a Sharpie instead of the safety tattoos as well. Doesn't come off with sweat and free (because we already have them at home). Just make sure you put the name/phone number where it is not readily visible but where the child knows where it is (like just under the sleeve on the upper arm).

    Clothes pins to air dry bathing suits on your balcony. I was thrilled I had these on our last cruise. Just pin the bathing suits to the chairs on the balcony, and in a few hours, everything is dry. On the Fantasy there is also the clothes line in your shower, only problem with this, is every time someone needs to shower, you need to take the clothesline down. The clothespins were a great idea I received from another cruiser. Also, the sticky notes. Great way to communicate with your room attendant.

    Great idea. I bought the Seagate Goflex satellite 500 gig before our trip and three iPads could stream movies at the same time. Wifi hard drives work great for entertaining kids. Monster portable power strip is a must for charging.

    So for someone who is tech challenged this is basically a device that stores things right? My son seems to think there is a product out there that he can buy for portable wi-fi to use to connect to the internet when you're in the car or on the ship. I've only heard of cell phones doing that but what do I know?

    Are there hangers in the closets or do I need to bring my own?

    There are hangers. We asked our stateroom host for extras and he gave us more!

    Don't you have to have a wifi connection to watch movies that are stored on it? I didn't realize the rooms on ship offered wifi. I had been thinking about buying one because my kids and husband watch a lot of movies and don't have room to store many on their ipads. This would be a great alternative if possible to do onboard.

    We haven't even taken our first DCL cruise yet, but I am already planning to bring a pack of colored hi-liters so each person in our family can mark what they'd like to do on the Personal Navigator each day. I love how on other lines this same thig is one page long, and on DCL it is like 6 pages long. :goodvibes Makes me happy because I love to keep busy!!!

    It creates its own wifi network to share the movies. It's a pretty neat device.

    Very very nice and useful post. We need to become safe before planning any adventurous outing. I really appreciate your effort and I am visiting Disney land next month with my family. Thanks again:banana::banana::banana:
