I just took a 10 day Alaskan cruise. We left from San Francisco, meaning we drove to port (so easy!). I could have packed more, but honestly, I am more comfortable with less. Easier to pack/unpack and honestly, I am less overwhelmed by the quantity.
My bags were a Travelpro rolling carry-on and a Kipling Sasha tote.
I've missed packing reports, so maybe this will inspire someone else to post?

This included what I wore the first day. So between what I wore and and what I packed, it all fit in my carryons.
Our weather ended up being quite temperate, so I only wore the tights and undershirt once and I really didn't even need them that day. (My previous cruise, I used them often). I also ended up not booking the thermal spa and didn’t go to the hot tub, so didn’t use the swim suit or cover up, but I don’t regret carrying these items…..you just don’t know. We traveled with 5 other people…..I probably would have used the thermal spa if it was just dh and I traveling.
I also could have done with one less pair of shoes as well, but again, had it been really rainy I would have been happy for the second pair for excursions (my last trip to Alaska, it did rain in almost all our ports and my shoes were soaked)
I wore everything else. I could have easily left out one pair of pants and two tops, but the variety was nice. Had we been moving around, I would have packed less.
Dh and I did one load of laundry on about day 6. And I rinsed out bras in the sink (super easy)
I had nice clothes for formal nights and felt my level of “dressiness” was on par with about 60& of passengers. I’d say 20% dressed very casually on gala nights and maybe 20% were much more dressy. I wore my black flats but added shoe clips (one night rhinestones and the other night a flower) so I felt that added an “extra” dressy touch.
