Have you ever forgot something that made your cruise a lot worse?

I got this idea after my last cruise. I LOVE going on cruises. My favorite thing to do is to go the bars and of course there are a lot of guys looking for some fun lol. So anyway, I was sure not to forget anything because I was going to be stuck on a cruise for an entire week. So when I finally get into my room on the ship, what do I find? I FORGOT MY COSMETICS BAG! All of my makeup, hair spray, shampoo, everything I need to look nice was in that bag that I forgot. So the next day I went to the shops and of course none of them sold makeup. The day after that I showered and my makeup came off so I was left without it for the rest of the cruise. Ugg I felt so plain and undone without makeup. I wear makeup every day so it was so weird going without it. What did you forget?

The last thing I forgot was my Tuxedo. That was back when the cruise lines enforced formal nights. Thankfully the line loaned me a jacket.


Umm makeup is sooo over rated. I much prefer ladies with little to no makeup. Especially on a cruise. Always have.

2 cruises ago forgot my dockers, casual pants that I usually wear to dinner. All I had was my suit and a pair of black jeans that I wore on sail-away. Fortunately those looked good enough I was able to get away with wearing them a few nights and my suit a few nights. Meh .. things happen .. just make do and enjoy the ride.

The fact that you said "stuck on a ship", is kinda weird. They don't sell cosmetics on the ship?

I must admit that the first thing that struck me was that you didn’t wash off your makeup the first night. The fresh sea air is great for skin and so much better on a makeup free face. I bet your new friends didn’t even notice because they only know the real you with no makeup. Happy

Lol without makeup I have light eyelashes and super pale skin. Not a good look for a cruise, especially formal nights!

They didn't! It was the only cruise I've ever been on that didn't sell makeup.

Yeah they only know ugly me lol.

Smart males go no where near this thread....theres a giant pit out there waiting to swallow you up.....………...

So .... by posting in here are you commenting on your smart maleness ... lol
