Ok, your cruise is almost here, and it is time to start making sure you have everything you need. But wait, airlines charge for luggage, so the thought of taking all your summer wardrobe is now crushed! You start going through the clothes that you planned on taking, and you take the unnecessary items and make a "can't fit" pile😥 . You pack your bag and finally realize, you need to take some of those clothes that are in your "can't fit pile" sound familiar? I used to do this with every cruise I went on, then I was enlightened by the Amazon Gods!
I heard of packing cubes before but never personally used them, and now that I do I do not know how I ever packed a suitcase without them! Regardless of if you travel alone or with a few kids, packing cubes are the ONLY way to pack stress free! Try them for yourself with this handy link below! If you travel with kids, by yourself or with just one other I definitely suggest the nine piece! This could save you enough room in your luggage to take one or two less pieces!

Tech Age Traveling:
Traveling in 2018 means we are all carrying a lot of electronics. Cell phone. laptop, professional grade camera, iPads, Kindles, go pros and the list goes on. So let's all agree that the average cruise couple in 2018 probably has about eight electronics to charge while onboard, we all know that there are nowhere near eight outlets in your cabin so how are you going to charge those electronics we all love to hate? Easy, simply click below to get your hands on your new best travel buddy and charge up to 5 different devices at the same time, and yes it is much smaller than your dad's power strip! This Belkin Surge Pro has gotten me through four cruises so far and is going strong, for $15 U.S.D. you will not regret it! Click the pic below to purchase!
While on the "technology" subject, we all know that cell phone batteries might not last that long, or maybe that GoPro that only has 90 minutes of battery life just is not going to do. Getting a new cell phone or camera probably is not the best idea, so are you just going to let picture-worthy moments just slip away? Of course not, you are going to bring your awesome new Mophie portable charger and for $19 U.S.D why wouldn't you? This device will charge any mobile device as long as you have the wire to plug it in! Comparable Mophie devices are usually around $100 U.S.D. so how about you save the extra $81 and put it toward your beverage package!
