One checked bag, one carry-on, one handbag, and layers of clothes
Since the airlines began charging for bags, I have been trying to decrease my luggage. I have decided to buy what I need on the voyage rather than pay the airlines the extra fees. Because I debark in Ft. Lauderdale and plan to drive home, my plan is easily implemented. Last year I paid $75 for the second checked bag on an international flight. This year the charges can be as high as $100 for the second bag and $200 for the third. I will be checking one bag (free on international) flights and taking one carry-on. Additionally I have a backpack/handbag and a jacket with filled pockets plus other layers of clothes. I definitely resemble a bag lady.
Formal nights, casual nights, theme nights
For formal nights I have packed a pair of long dressy pants to be paired with different tops and a short blackdress. For theme nights I have an Oriental jacket for one and a long white dress for another. The short black dress should do for a couple of the theme nights also. By mixing and matching and adding accessories, these should suffice. For casual nights I have pink crop pants with a couple white shirts and a pink pashmina, khaki crop pants with a couple of black shirts and a beige pashmina, a flowered top with black tights. All have matching accessories and shoes!
Around the ship
White sweatpants and a zippered sweatshirt will be my go to wardrobe on the ship. I also packed white shorts, white jeans, and several pink shirts. A couple of swim suits and cover-ups complete the around the ship attire.
I love shoes. This year I have really tried to keep them to a minimum of 7 pairs. One pair low dress black heels, one dress gold high heels, pink high heels, beige high heels, white Fit-Flops, pink walking Fit-Flops, and beige/black walking Fit-flops.
Cosmetics, toiletries, medications
I am taking the minimum. If I need more, I can pick them up in Singapore.
There is always one more thing!
