I have been wandering around this board for about 6 months now and have received great tips from everyone. Now that my cruise is only 4 weeks away, I am trying to decide what I definately need to bring with me on this cruise, i.e., over the door shoe hanger, and what I can do without. For example, do I really need to pack straws? Any help is greatly appreciated. P.S. Travelling with my husand and five year old son....... Thank you so much.
