I am by no means an experienced cruiser but i have been on one cruise and i found just lots of research is key for all details. Definitely try NOT to over pack. My biggest error on my first cruise last year.. We are planning our second cruise for April... So excited. I loved creating a Pintrist board of cruise blog posts which was super helpful. I found great ideas on what to pack, fun excursions and so much more.. Which cruise are you going on?
