Cruise Travel: Packing, Packing, and More Packing

The one thing I dislike about any trip is the physical act of packing suitcases. Yes, I've done it many times over the years and it should be an effortless task. Normally it is. However, in the case of our upcoming trip (we'll be on our way to Fort Lauderdale by the time you read this!), packing means two cruises back-to-back on different ships. Think "coordination" of enough clothing and other stuff. Thankfully, we have a day between the two cruises to re-group and do some laundry at a friend's home in the Fort Lauderdale area.

What's on Cruise Diva's schedule? First is the Smooth Jazz Cruise on Holland America Line's Westerdam. We embark Sunday, Jan 20, so watch for daily blog updates from sea through the 27th. You'll definitely want to sail along.

After a week aboard Westerdam, we'll embark on Carnival Imagination for an "Evolutions of Fun" cruise on Mon, 1/28. Again, watch here for daily blogging about the upgrades and all the fun of a Carnival cruise.

I'm anticipating blue skies, warm temperatures, and calm seas. Don't miss it!
