Being a cruising addict, I have found some favorite things that I cannot cruise without.  My first favorite thing has to do with the paper luggage tags that the cruise ship has you print off with all your cruise documents.

These tags tell the ships’ crew where your luggage lives for the next few days, as it has your name and cabin number printed on it.  You are to fold these little beauties and either staple or tap them onto the handle of your luggage. 

The problem with these tags is that they are made of paper and thus they are very easily torn off.  Then, your luggage does not have a home and you do not have your clothes and other sundries until the luggage is located.

When getting off our last cruise we had an instance when a bag did not show up in the pickup area assigned for the luggage of my son in law.  An hour later we found the homeless luggage drop.  I found that I need to do better at preparing those I travel with.  They need my favorite thing too.

My favorite thing, that combats this problem, are these luggage tag plastic sleeves.  There are many different ones on the market, and I have tried a few.  I really like these, for various reasons.  Get Tags Here.

  1. They are made of a heavy gauge plastic, very durable
  2. They have a ziplock close on the top
  3. The hanger is made of metal, so it is not easily broken
  4. The closure is a twist close so it stays closed

One tip to remember is that these sleeves come in 2 sizes.  Make sure you buy the one that is for the cruise line you are cruising.  These sleeves are so inexpensive that I have both sizes. I am ready for any cruising and more memories.

See Ya Makin Memories!

I am Wease, and my traveling days started early with a father that loved to travel. As a family, a large one, we always traveled and always by car. No matter how far we went, we made the famous road trip. My father’s mantra on these trips was “we are making memories”. No matter what happened on those trips, whether good or bad, we always made memories. These memories are very precious to me. My husband and I have continued this tradition in our family, with our children, of traveling and making memories. I have learned some valuable lessons and tricks and I plan to share these with you here. Here is what I live by: “The best things in life are the people we love, the places we have been, and the memories we have made along the way”. Anonymous
