We leave for New Orleans tomorrow morning and I am so excited for another summer adventure. Packing for this trip has been a challenge - there's so much I have to bring! We're staying in NOLA two nights, so I needed to pack for a couple of days there, plus five days of cruising, including days we'll be going on excursions, and one nice outfit for dinner. Shew. It was a lot of thinking + buying + mixing + packing + repacking, but I think I've narrowed down my list to include the items pictured in the image posted above.
I decided to pretty much pack everything. ;) I included a couple of nice tops for wandering around NOLA, some shorts & a denim skirt for casual nights. A few nice dresses for evening wear, and a nicer dress for our formal evening. I had to have a beach bag, of course, a bag for evenings, and my normal purse. One thing I didn't think about until reviewing our itinerary was athletic wear. We'll be doing a lot of hiking for one of our excursions and there's a walking track on board, so I packed some athletic shorts to pop on with my tennies and a tee. There are still some items I'm choosing from (see the "maybe" list below!), so take this list with a grain of salt - I'm so indecisive!
What do you think? Am I missing anything? I can't wait to share all about our trip when we get back!
