My Eagle Creek packing cubes arrived the other day and I wanted to try them out right away, so I decided to do a packing test run for my trip. Here is a look at everything I'm taking.
As a carry-on, I will be using my green Coach travel bag because it has comfortable straps, it zips closed, and it hold a lot of stuff. The items included in my carry-on are:
Inside my carry-on I will also have a little zipper pouch with all of my cords in it. It will have cords or chargers for my iPhone, iPad, laptop, and camera.
Along with my carry-on bag, I will also be taking my full-size purse on the plane with me. I will only be using this purse during our time in Daytona and will use a smaller cross body purse for the cruise. Some items in my purse include:
Inside my checked suitcase will be two cases for toiletries. The smaller one is specifically for my shower items and the larger one is for everything else. Here's a closer look at both.
The smaller case is from Soap & Glory and it came from a holiday gift set. I held onto it because I thought it would come in handy some day, and now it has! The items in my shower kit include:
Inside my larger toiletry bag I will be taking:
The zipper pouch inside my larger toiletry kit will be for first aid items. They include:
My travel manicure set will include:
I will also be packing a mini laundry kit in my checked suitcase, which will have:
During the trip I plan on keeping a Smash book of our adventures, so I am bringing the Simple Style Smash book along with a zipper pouch of supplies, including:
Some other items that will be packed in my suitcase are for my cabin stateroom. They are:
And now, finally on to clothes and accessories. The pictured accessories above include:
Here are all of the clothes and shoes I'll be bringing on the trip for both Florida and the cruise. If you're interested, you can see how my outfits are broken out in my last blog post. My list of clothes includes:
This is the final product once I loaded everything into my suitcase. The suitcase itself is a SwissGear Checklite 24" Upright in Charcoal with spinner wheels. I bought it at Target for about $160. I'm hoping the light gray color will make it stand out from the other 95% of suitcases on the luggage carousel that will be black.
And that is a look at everything I am taking on my trip! I believe I've thought of everything, but if I am missing something that you have found handy on a cruise before, please let me know in the comments!
