It has been a really long time since I posted anything. First I was held up with some urgent personal work and then I was down with a minor eye infection and so on. Hence, this post has been due for almost a month now. Anyways, as they say - better late than never!
I went on my first cruise last month. It was a short trip of 3nights/4days from Long Beach to Ensenada, Mexico. I usually suffer from sea sickness (actually motion sickness in general) when travelling even small distances on boats or smaller ships. So I was wary of cruising. However, it was a wonderful and pretty comfortable experience.
I was a bit confused while packing for the trip but was later glad to find out that I had packed just the right quantity and quality. Apart from the usual sunscreen, sunglasses, flip-flops and cosmetics, I packed the same stuff that I would pack for a nice beach resort. I had also incorporated a few formal pieces just in case. I was glad that I had done so because although there were no formal nights on this particular cruise, almost everyone was very formally dressed for every dinner and afternoon tea.
So this was what comprised my luggage- A formal calf length skirt, 2 formal tops, a semi formal dress, one sari, two day-dresses/cover-ups, one swimsuit, a pair of jeans and a casual shirt for the shore tour, a pair of formal shoes, a pair of flat sandals, a pair of sneakers, a light shawl, scarves and some simple jewelery to mix and match.
Here are a few pictures. Hope you like them!
