Quart size ziplock?

My question is how do you squeeze all your liquids into 1 ziplock for a cruise? Flying in and it seems crazy I cannot bring hardly anything. Shampoo conditioner mouthwash and toothpaste. That is all that fits. What about sunscreen, lotion, perfume, liquid meds, etc? Any suggestions?

Check your bag. Then that does not apply.

I agree. Check your bag in. If you don't want to check your bag in, you can wait until you get to your destination and then stop in at a Walmart/walgreens/cvs and get the items you need for your cruise. Also, the quart size bag is per person, and medications are allowed separate from the baggie rule. Dh and I can get everything we need into a quart size apiece just fine. Also, the cruiselines have complimentary shampoo/conditioner.

$100 extra so I can have sunscreen and hand lotion is just crazy but thanks for the suggestion

I will be using a Carnival transfer bus upon arriving at the airport. Transfer buses don't stop at the stores for you. Good idea though. Thanks

A lot of items are already on the ship and you only need them for an overnite in a hotel in which case you can always get the mini travel size for one night.

All of the items you listed are either supplied by the ship or sold in the ship's store, except prescription medicine.

When we fly I put "sample" size toiletries in my one quart zip lock bag. If you cannot find the small size transfer to a smaller container you either purchase or have from a trip to some hotel. I find the hardest small size item to find is perfume, because they don't seem to have the samples very often anymore. As mentioned your meds do not need to be in the same bag, take advantage of that.

I must commend you on being able to not check a bag. It would never work for us. You might consider checking one bag with the heavier items (like shoes) and any full sized toiletries you need (like sun screen). You might be surprised how little of everything else you actually use in a week.

Good luck!

Thanks for the suggestions

My thoughts exactly. Guess it works on short cruises though. Try to do something like that on a three to four week voyage.
