Well, friends. I’m back from taking a cruise to the Caribbean! Cory and I (along with my parents) took a 7 night cruise with Royal Caribbean to the Eastern Caribbean. I had been on a cruise with Carnival before, but this was the first with RC. We went on Allure of the Seas and stopped in Nassau, Bahamas, St. Thomas, and St. Kitts. The best part? I refused to purchase the on-board wifi so I had a break from technology for a solid week! HOLLAH! With this being my second cruise, I thought it was fitting to share some cruise essentials you can’t forget.

I think the biggest struggle with packing was knowing that I would be away from society (and stores) for a whole week. While there are some stores on the ship, I wanted to try to avoid paying up the wazoo for something I could have packed myself. A half-size can of Pringles was on sale for $6!!! Sunscreen? Not much better. Therefore, I was a mad woman when it came to packing and making sure we had everything 😉
