New to the site and 1st time cruiser

Hello everyone! My husband and I along with some friends are going on a 3 day cruise to Ensenada ( I'm sure not the best cruiser ) but we want to make sure we will enjoy it. I'm excited! Any tips for packing and what should we expect? We have an Ocean View room but we know nothing on cruising. Thank you in advance for the help.

Welcome to Cruising Earth!

Any cruise is a good cruise and a 3-day is a great way to start.

Here is a pre-cruise checklist that will help you out: https://www.cruisingearth.com/forum...uments-1/cruisin-pre-cruise-checklist-65.html

As much as you will hear people telling you not to overpack, you're probably still going to do it on your first cruise - it's almost inevitable. You will probably end up needing about half of what you bring.

I'm sure you'll have a ton of questions between now and then, don't hesitate to post them. Even though the forums aren't busy with posts currently there are thousands of cruisers through here daily that have a wealth of information they can assist you with.
