    Suzy, this was a really helpful post. I’ve never thought about packing a tiny luggage scale. Also, when I read this I realized our backpacks need to stay in our suitcases.
    Great post!

    Good tips! We’ve been on several cruises. I’m chemically sensitive and paler than pale, so I wear UPF shirts. This eliminates the need for sunscreen on at least part of my body! Also, for seasickness, MotionEaze is good. It’s made from all-natural oils, and you just dab a little on behind the ears. I’ve only been seasick once, on the first cruise we took, and it really helped!

      Audrey,
      I’m so sorry you have to deal with the chemical sensitivity. I’m all about UPF shirts and I wore them, but they made me so hot. (And we were already there at a really hot time of the year!) That’s why I’m doing the umbrella next time! Thanks for the MotionEase recommendation. Here’s a link in case anyone want to give it a try or add it to the arsenal I already suggested! Hahahaha! (https://rstyle.me/+lWskVyNbEvfI-VgJsTNSRg) I did try it once on our Alaska cruise, but the smell was so strong, people in our tour group kept asking, “Who has the smelly motion-sick stuff on?” Hahahaha! That’s why I haven’t used it since and didn’t put it in my list. But I agree with you – IT DID HELP! if you’re as sensitive as you are, it sounds like a great option. Thanks so much for your thoughtful comment, sweet Audrey! xoxo Suzy

    Cruises are so relaxing! I love not having to stress about where to eat or what to do. One new tip I’m going to try on my next cruise is to use small battery-powered candles at night, because the cabins are so dark at night. Love reading about your cruise!

      Shannon,
      I’m so happy that you enjoyed the post! I love your tip about the battery-powered candles! You’re right, those cabins are super dark at night! I do have some friends who bring night lights with them, but I like your idea so much better! Thanks for your comment! xoxo Suzy
