So, now we have our cruise excursions, cruise fare, airfare, tips, hotel in Rome and Rome excursions paid for before we even board the vessel. We now have to start planning our clothes packing. Since this is a 14 day cruise, stopping in the Caribbean before headng to Europe, and an additional 4 extra days on land in Italy, we ponder what type of clothes and how much should we take with us on this trip. We know that we will need tropical wear for the Caribbean along with formal wear for Europe and nights onboard the ship. We were happy to hear that Carnival's ship, the "Freedom" does have a laundromat but we also know that these places are few and the lines can be around the corner. However, we also know that we do not want to take 10 bags of luggage as well. :)
Clothes are not the only things we need to take with us as well.. We will have to pack quite a lot of toiletry items, personal electronics and any medications we feel are important for the trip as well. Can we REALLY be able to pack one bag each for this trip? Only time will tell..
Some items I feel are too important not to take. Such as, walkie talkies (in order to communicate onboard the ship), GPS (in order to recognize islands we may pass along the way) and sanitizer wipes ( in order to wipe down items in our cabin (remote control, door handles, etc.)). Let us not forget, the hand sanitizer gel to keep in our pockets at all times. I have NEVER gotten sick onboard a cruise before and I do not want to start now ;)
That is all for now..
