You MUST Pack this when you Cruise!

Cruise Packing

I travel a lot! The more I travel, the more of a need I have to keep a bag packed with items I need to have with me. One thing that many of you watch me to yearly is take  large trip with my entire family..we are talking 12-20 or more. We have a blast! Last year, we all cruised on the Disney Fantasy, this was a first cruise for my entire family (except for my husband and kids). My husband and I had a connecting room to my in-laws (this is something I like to recommend). My mother in-law really surprised me when she pulled out battery operated indoor motion sensing lights out of her luggage. I watched her as she placed them in the walking path from each sleeping location to the bathroom, as well as one in the bathroom.

Stop right here! 

Clearly she listened when we had our planning meeting because I stressed how dark it is in those rooms should you need to get up to use the bathroom. Next, I also stressed how hard it is to work the lights when you are half-asleep. Great job Mom!

The cool thing is, these lights only illuminate when you walk in their path, then they each turn off as you pass through them. This makes for a very safe way to the bathroom at night!

Since that trip, battery operated lights come with me on ever single vacation. Not only are they good for cruising, but they are great for travel in general.

I don’t add affiliate links to our site so you will have to do a little search on your own. However, amazon does have them in a pack of 2 to 3..you can search, “battery operated motion sensor night light.”

What Our Clients Say

My grandson Oscar (5), son Johnathan, sister Kim and I went to Disney World for a week.  When I first had the thought to go I thought, where do I begin?  I put a shout out on FaceBook and discovered that Beth was a guru.  All I had to give her was my dates and we started from there.  She gave me options for resorts, told me about the dining plan, park hopper, fast passes and resorts to stay in.  She walked me through every step of the way.  I know that our vacation would not have been half as fun or organized if not for Beth.  I can’t say enough good things about her.  I would ask a silly question, she would reply and not make me feel like it was silly.  There is so much to Disney that I know it would have been a nightmare without her.  She is always, friendly and helpful.  She never tried to sway my opinion one way or another and let me make the decisions.  I would definitely have been lost without her.  I recommend her to everyone who says they want to go to Disney World.  Thank you Beth for the vacation of a lifetime.
