Pack it, just in case

do you pack anything, just in case you might need it ?

for example, I pack that little kit to do emergency repairs on dental caps and fillings. Most pharmacies carry it.

i also pack a few of those little plastic wedges. We bought them at the Container Store, but a hardware store should carry them.  Just in case a table wobbles.

Yes, just in case we need over the counter meds I pack them. Some things we have yet to use but the first time I don't pack them, we will need them.

I always pack a travel sewing kit. Not all cruise lines provide one. Nothing is worse than getting ready for formal night and a button pops off your suit.

I also pack a box of granola bars. I know theres never a shortage of food on a cruise ship, but sometimes you just want something small to tide you over before than next trip to the buffet.

Always extra clothes. Never know if your cruise will be extended without running waterWink.

Personally, I could use the extra vacation days though.Big Smile

Usually a few snack bars, extra e-cig supplies, and more than enough (hopefully) cash.

The wife takes care of the smart stuff like sewing kits (actually needed last year due to popped buttons) and toiletries.

One day one of us will remember to take the headache/stomach ache/allergy meds.

Always a sewing kit, small first aid kit. extra meds and a few OTC just in case. Other than those, if I need it I would probably just buy it.

I buy a back brush from the dollar store. When the cruise is over I can leave it.

I pack a few "might needs"... mainly OTC medications (e.g., cold meds, ibuprofen), bandaids, sewing kit, and disposable rain ponchos.

Always OTC and a sewing kit, stamps, night light, wrinkle release for clothing and laundry detergent.
