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

Cruising and shopping a must. Double addiction!!!

I save my shopping for the cruise and will usually pick up an interesting shirt or 3. Not the t-shirt type but a nice hawaiian shirt or a dashiki. Before our last cruise though my wife talked me into something to block RFID readers from scanning my cards. Initially she had a wallet or pouch in mind but then I found these neet sleeves for credit cards that block RFID readers. They are great as they fir over the card and the card still fits into my wallet.

We always buy new socks. They are easy to pack.

We also buy new underwear. The older stuff comes with us, and gets thrown out instead of repacked.


Here's what I got.

I usually check the condition of my whites. If they are a bit dingy, I'll spring for something new.
We cruise to relax, not to participate in a fashion show so that kind of sets the tone of any shopping we need to do :)

Super cute!

One of the many (many, many!) great things about cruising is you don’t see the same people. You can pack the exact same clothes every time and your fellow passengers will never know!

So you actually buy new underwear for home, not to cruise.Happy Also, does your wife know you are sharing publicly that she will be wearing ready-for-the-trash undies when we meet her on a cruise?Big Smile

That's a pretty genius idea though...
