Water isn't necessary in my opinion. But the water in the ship is desalinated. Some people don't like the taste. You can bring two bottles of wine. Purchase at port city (dont fly with it in case it breaks. Carry wine on ship in your carry on.
You will NOT need a hair dryer (there's one your cabin). Same with shampoo conditioner and soap. Room steward can get you an iron. But you're on vacation. Who wants to iron? Lol
Bring clothes that you don't need to iron. Bring Downy Wrinkle reducer spray. My savior when traveling! They sell travel sized bottles at Target and Walmart. But...if you must have an iron your room, your steward will show you where the laundry room is on the boat and they have an iron there. OR, you can pay to have them do it.
Internet package is not necessary in my opinion unless you need it for work. But again. You're on vacation! This is your time. It will be there when you get back.
Ship's the smaller wifi package may be better way to go if you have a smart phone. I already called my cell phone company and extended my plan to work abroad. Wifi, data, and texting is free on many providers even abroad. Phone calls can be pricey. Check with your cell phone company. If it's free in your plan... purchase the ship's wifi.
I still haven't decided if I'm going to purchase it. Part of me wants to stay connected but another part of me says that I'm on vacation and the point of vacation is to "unplug."

Cash is king. You'll want to get some Euros to have available. I usually have small amounts -no large bills! ($50-100). Keep just enough to get a cab, grab a bite to eat, souvenirs etc...
Get a money belt to wear UNDER your clothes. Think tourist safety. Pick pockets are common. Don't forget to let your bank know your travel dates so they won't shut down your CC for fraud/identity theft reasons.

Any advice about buying the water package and the Internet. They are expensive. What is really necessary to purchase and what is just a waste of money. The special restaurants?? Shoul I make reservations?? I've done a lot of reading of what to bring but what did you find most helpful. Do I need to bring hair dryer?? Iron or steamer??? Can I bring my own wine. I've heard 2 bottles allowed and los heard no bottles. Do you know??? Advice please. I leave. In a week.
