You've got plenty of workout clothes there but are you really planning to wear the same shirt & pants every night? Only 2 pair of underwear?

You may want to rethink your list.............

No need to rethink. Yes I wear the same shirt and pants every night for dinner, unless I wear dress shorts. I figure wearing the same stuff to dinner every night equates out to one days wear at work. Sometimes depending on DW's mood I might rent a tux. As for underwear, you are right I prob only need one pair since I'm almost always in a bathing suit. LOL

8. underwear

Husband
1. 1 to 2 slacks
2. 2/3 shirts
3. underwear, T shirt

It definately depends on what one likes to do. DW packs a lot more stuff than I do. Should note all workout gear is tech stuff so it's easy to rinse out and dry.

We had a good one posted in our Roll Call Thread (see post #977).

http://boards.cruisecritic.com/showt...401722&page=49

There was another one posted, but I can't seem to locate it.

The most comprehensive list I've found is here:
http://www.*************.com/downloa..._2011_rev2.pdf

I just scratch out what I don't need, and add the very few things I need that aren't on there. It's a great list!


-gina-

EDIT: Apparently it's not okay to have the name of another cruise-centric website even mentioned? Whatever. Go to cruise crazies dot com, and click on "packing."

I find it quite easy to pack only those clothes that I really will need by making a spreadsheet.

The columns are each day of the cruise including the first and last travel days and show whether it is a port or sea day. It also helps to add any excursion you have booked or are thinking of taking and what you plan on doing.

Under that I list morning, afternoon and evening. Then I plug in the outfit I want for that day.

I find that what I wear on Casual night is usually good for the next day also.

Sea days are easy, bathing suit and shorts and a t top if I want to go to the casino or dining room for lunch. I don't usually have the shorts and t top on very long so they are good for another day as well.

Makes packing very easy and avoids packing too many clothes. Always allow for purchasing t shirts in the ports so that cuts down on how many to take. I also try to mix and match clothes for dinner. Black slacks and 2 tops. Or one long dress with different jackets. Just change out the jewelry and you have a whole new outfit.

It really does help to write it down or put it on the computer. So many of the items I have seen on some packing lists are just not needed.

I do find a small flashlight, post it notes and highliter sure do come in handy. Now that my DH cruises with me I leave the flashlight at home and just leave the bathroom light on and close the door.

I also try to take one pair of dress shoes that will go with everything, a pair of day time sandals, sneakers and pool shoes.

I have found that if I don't make this list then I pack clothes that we never wear. So why lug a heavy suitcase around unnecessarily.

Try the "cruisediva" website, as they offer a specific female packing list and a male packing list, as well as a generic one that includes things applicable to both, as camera, passport, etc.

Judy now I like your plan. Although I don't write things down, I generally start off with figuring my evening attire, based upon Formal vs casual. I bring 1 pair of black slacks, two fancy tops, and 1 dress. Since we had 3 days Pre cruise in Barcelona, I had to figure for the 3 days + the 15 cruise days and ports. I ended up with 1 pair of jeans, & 3 causal slacks that could be also worn during the evening casual nights, excluding the jeans. I then ended up with 3 nicer evening pants as well. One lady on our cruise figuring for a 2 week cruise, uses the 5 of everything rule.
I lay out my slacks on the bed I think I want then try and mix & match blouses to go with them. I keep my heels down to 2 pair.
