I spent my week working on tweaking one of my cruises for next year as I am doing what I preach about often, that is, taking two back-to-back voyages. I am having an issue and can not get the same cabin for both weeks and will rant about that later. For now the week that was:

My wife, every time we start to pack for a cruise, gives me a bit of an eye-roll because I insist on bringing a bunch of stuff to make our time in our cabin better. But this new one really is needed and even she agrees it is a sweet (and needed) upgrade.

Speaking of things to bring on a cruise (see what I did there?), one item you should never bring is TP paper from home. Why? Well it is kinda gross but you can see why here.

Clearly we all love cruising but I think most of us (well me anyway) want to enjoy and experience as much as possible but also pay as little as possible for the same. Card offers are one way to do just that.

Many of the cruises I take depart out of US ports and judging by the numbers of record bookings you are also. Getting cheaply, with free bags, to the port city is a great way to save cash!

Michael this week has a review of the Westin Playa Bonita Panama. If cruising the Panama canal is on your bucket list the likely you will either be starting or ending your cruise in Panama (unless you are passing through that is).

Today I am just back from visiting family down south and had a great time and talked about a family cruise sometime in the near future. I love planning so this is right up my alley! – Rene

  1. Among the must takes for a cruise on my list are Vapur flasks for carrying water on excursions, a credit card sized magnifying glass, a small Japanese pouring thermos to have tea in the morning, a travel router for multiple device connection on the ship internet, a set of Swedish sporks, collapsible travel hangers and mini clothes pins, an AA battery hair trimmer, a lightweight pocket notebook and bullet space pen, a sewing repair kit, a lanyard and Hefty 2.5 gallon slider bags to protect gear from water/store wet gear/store shoes. Last, but not least, is a luggage packing checklist

  2. We needed a none sweating water bottle. The ship gave us bottles but they perspired badly! Also a night light for the bathroom vs leaving the light on – as you could see it under and around the door.. We asked for one but it did not work. Clothes pins for hanging up wet stuff was a must.
