Too Much Carry-On Luggage

When I first started cruising, I took way too much in my carry-on bag that I lugged through the airport and waiting in line at the port. 90% of what I was carrying could have gone into the regular luggage!

I believed that there would be a long delay getting my luggage in my cabin and so far, it has never happened. I know I know spare me the horror stories ,,, But in 2016 on a dozen cruises, I never had to wait for it.

Therefore, I now pack medication, minimal makeup and jewelry, my camera and most importantly my passport/documents and let my lightweight carry-on serve as my purse. (I use a super light quilted tote bag I got on one of the islands)

I have learned to purge my purse and leave behind things like local grocery store / dept store cards and other items I only use at home.

I think Debbie uses her poor dear husband as if he is a Rocky Mountain pack mule.

DH has a camera bag and I have one carry on piece. It has basic travel size toiletries, minimal makeup, my wallet and our travel documents, passports, iPhone with chargers and it's not heavy. I've also put in a basic change of clothes because a few times our luggage has not been on the same plane as us.

I usually carry a laptop bag over my shoulder and a small backback. My wife has a wheeled carry-on size suitecase.

We could both probably pack everything we need to carry on in the computer bag, but where's the fun in that?
