We always use those vacuum bags when we travel. You can fit more in the luggage.

On our PC cruise, we had Susan Egan, we also had Roy Disney and his wife, and Don "Ducky" Williams.

I actually slept through the injury and didn't even feel it! So, yeah rolling carts and partying people are not going to bother me on board, either.

Good tips about the bags! Thank you!
I love that this cruise has been an excuse to buy all new summer clothes, and they've all been on sale!

I use the vacuum bags every time I cruise. You have to be careful if you are putting things like tshirts. It can leave them fairly wrinkled, but I've used these for that if needed. I usually pack undies, pj's, socks, items I'm not too concerned if they come out wrinkled. Great for compressing a jacket, sweatshirt...things that have a lot of bulk.

Hope your toe is better. It just makes me cringe reading about it!

When Rita says she's packed, she really is!! Was at her house yesterday, and her suitcases were already zipped. Of course we went to the outlet mall for one last trip to the Disney store, so that means a few adjustments.

She has motivated me, so today that's what I've been doing. Off to pick up dry cleaning. Good to have a motivating cruising buddy.

Rita - so how many suitcases (and carry-ons) is your party taking?

We had Don "Ducky" Williams on our 11 night Holiday Cruise - I have not heard of any special guest on this one - I would think they would announce it but maybe...

Normally they try to do fun things on the longer cruises - I've even heard they did a Murder Mystery in the past.

Suitcases

Well, I have a medium size suitcase and a carryon size. Then I have a backpack and big "purse." Hopefully the last few things will fit in as I added 4 more shirts yesterday. We need to hurry and leave so I don't keep adding things!

A murder mystery could be fun. They also held a crew talent show one night. That was really fun. I don't remember knowing in advance that Susan Egan was performing.

Over-the-door Organizors

I know DCL no longer allows the traditional organizors over the bathroom door. Has anyone come up with a good alternative plan to store all that small kind of stuff. On other threads I have read ideas about hanging the organizors from hangers, using zip ties and ribbons and hanging them over hooks on the walls. Are there hooks on the walls? Any other ideas? Thanks!

There is a hook on the back of the bathroom door, take something to tie your organizer to a coat hanger and hang it up. Bring a wire coat hanger "just in case" or hang it in the closet

I had no idea DCL did not allow these. I've never had one. Just curious as to why these are banned.

Many of the organizors came with metal hooks that hooked over the top of the door holding the organizor up. These metal hooks left marks on the doors and I guess DCL had to put a stop due to the damage caused to the doors.

We love these organizors. They are a very convenient way to store all the stuff that might be piled up on counter tops elsewhere.

That makes sense. Thanks for the response.

OK, a quick update on the lists.

lbolt123 is the only person involved that I still need a stateroom # for.

Also, I have had several question me on denamo (Dena) and chdheart (Rita) both being in the same stateroom, but listed separately on each list. I did that since they are friends staying in the same room, not family and each are doing their own, so it is only fair that they each receive their own . Hope that made perfect sense to all. If anyone needs extra clarification, please ask.

One week from tonight!!

I am so excited about getting on board. A week seems too long still!

I found some Tide, travel size, for washing clothes in the sink at Rite Aid yesterday. Thought I'd let you know it can be found for those of us doing a small amount of in room laundry!
