Shopping for accessories for your cruise?

Does anyone else go "cruise shopping" Mean ing as you get closer to your cruise, you just need to buy some new clothes, a new bathing suite, a hat, glasses or travel things? I did the last time (but I had no shorts or capris) and this time I'm thinking I need to buy a hat, although I never wear hats

I think I have a cruise addiction, and a shopping addiction Crying

2 addictions for the cost of one..... well things could be worse.....

Cruise Shopping has opened a whole new addiction for me too ... if it meets my cruise list criteria - lightweight, functional, gotta have it. I'm a sucker for the gadgets (passport carrier, clear luggage tags, packing cubes, etc.) And yes, I started buying hats even though I don't normally wear them.

Bought this Husky Hat in San Francisco one cold blistery cruise day but wow did it come in handy!

I must have new sundresses and beach bags....I'm definitely a bag lady

The only shopping I do is for the next cruise.

Amazon loves me when we are getting ready to cruise Big Smile This time, I had to have (yes, I NEEEEDED LOL) a couple of new paperbacks, rain ponchos, clear cruise line luggage tags,

and I still have time to order something else with Prime if I need it :))))))

I have got about all I need, I keep my cruise stuff in a box so I have it ready for the next cruise. But for last cruise I did do some shopping, clear tags for ship luggage tags, new regular luggage tag and new lanyards for all of us going.

My shopping issue would be Polo shirts when in port..... I have tons of them but always want one from each port I go to.

I don't tend to spend a lot of money pre-cruise, but it's murder to keep me and my wife out of the stores in portBig Smile

Yes this is also important

I'm glad I'm not the only one. I now feel normal Big Smile

I bought a nautical patterned tote bag and scarf for my next cruise.
