Because my WIWW partner in crime has been gone for more than a week on her cruise I have not taken photos this week, but I decided to still link up with Lindsey from the Pleated Poppy and share some what i wore pictures from our February cruise. We took a seven day cruise in the Caribbean in February with our kids. I love clothes and a packing list is one of my favorite things so here is what I packed for a 7 day cruise to Jamaica, Cozumel and the Cayman Islands out of Galveston, TX.
5 pairs night time shoes, some could double as daytime shoes
2 pairs socks
2 pairs pjs
yoga pants (for exercising or early morning hang out)
2 t-shirts (for exercising or early morning hang out)
couple of cardigans
1 pair of jeans (wore these onto the boat)
3 pairs shorts
5 daytime tops
2 swimsuit cover ups
rubber bands for windy hair
cute hat for hanging by the pool
2 pairs sunglasses (just in case)
towel (they give you one, but we liked having our own. not sure if i would do that again)
shampoo, lotion, razors, other toiletries...
day pack (we took a mesh beach bag that we could use at the pool or ports)
packing questions i had before i cruised the first time...
-do i need a towel?....you don't, but i found having my own beach towel was a good way to mark seats
-do i need a hair dryer?....all cruises i have been on have provided a hair dryer
-what about luggage?....i have packed myself in a large roller bag for my last two cruises and that was fine for holing what i needed and i had plenty of room in our cabin to store it. For this cruise we had a regular stateroom with a balcony and had packed in three large rolling bags for the four of us. I found that we could store our luggage inside each other and then under the bed.
-soap, shampoo, conditioner?....soap and shampoo was provided, but i can't remember about conditioner. i packed my own.
-was it cold on a cruise in February?....it was cool on the day we left Galveston. We each took one jacket and wore it on the boat. We had a sunny day so we were very comfortable in jeans, short sleeves, and a lightweight jacket for setting sail. It was cool through the morning of the second day, but then upper 80s and obviously a little breezy. We wore shorts and short sleeves the rest of the time until our last day of sailing. We had a rainy last day as we headed back into the Gulf of Mexico and were wearing our jeans and light jackets again.
