I do. I like to pack for the "what ifs".

Absolutely.  Plus I like options.

no, you are not the only one. i have gotten much better, the wife says she always overpacks. We can get on a two week cruise with two good sized bags so not too bad.

We did, big time, but not so much anymore. The airlines are charging per bag and no freebies. so since we have to fly everywhere, we have got pretty good at packing.

We have gotten it under control in the last few trips.  There is hope :)

It takes a few trips to learn how to pack just what you need.  There is home.  On my next cruise I will just pack a carry on bag and my back pack.

Going on my first cruise in July and not sure what to pack.  Thinking a few outfits but plan on being by the pool the most. Until we get to the Bahamas

I am hoping for the next cruise I have the packing under control ... last cruise was a 14 day one so over packing was just a given ... next is a 7 day so hopefully I can cut in half what I took last time .... we will see ... we will see ... ;)

OK,   I just finished packing for a week long trip,  2 days in Florida and then a 4 night cruise......It all fit into one carry on bag and then my toiletries and electronics in my back pack Big Smile

We went for a week. One hanging suitcase.. One big one that weighed in at 49 lbs at airport..2 carry on..and my pocketbook shoved full. Sigh..We actually wore most of our clothes. I packed extra "things" though.  Every review I read  I wrote down tips. I took a night light .needed..powerstrip..did not need.  Meds for any catastrophe (had everything for nausea you could imagine. Antibiotic cream..forgot something for a headache..paid 8.50 for a bottle of Tylenol sigh) brought drink mixes. Never used. Sonext time I will cut back on the things..oh and shoes.. Brought too many. Sandels and water shoes..all you need
