OMG Sassymom, even though we only know each other via Facebook, (or were we in an AJ workshop together?) you are my first friend on this cruise! Can't wait to see you. Is this your first Olivia vacation? It's my first.
I asked about packing for "formal evenings" and such, and I was told that there is usually one costume night/party (or more) and there may be one "black and white" formal evening. I think we find out about that later. Thanks for the tip about the over-the-door shoe bag and toiletries. One thing that's influencing how much I pack is that I hear there are good laundry packages available on board (there aren't any self-service laundry facilities), so I will probably bring less stuff and have it washed. Since I'm flying down from NH, I'll need a travel set of warm clothes, but otherwise I should be able to make do with lighter garments.
P.S. Someone also told me there may be "clothing optional" parties by the pool BUT you won't see this fair-skinned redhead without clothes in full sunshine!!
