My big suitcase is just too big for such a short cruise and my larger overnight bag has seen its better days so while out for a walk I went into a discount store on Seymour street and spotted this one - it was only $34.95 so I brought it and it seems to work out just right.
I have attached my luggage tag - you now print them out yourself - then fold and staple to your luggage handle.
Here's my clothes for the two cruises - a real assortment of items - rain gear - summer gear and a hoodie if it is cold at the ball park.
Tomorrow I will pack my toys in my day pack - camera, tablets, extra batteries and media cards and will leave the condo about 11:30 AM.
If it stops raining I will walk down to Canada Place - if it is still raining I will grab a taxi for the short ride to the ship.
While these two cruises are nothing spectacular they will give me a welcome respite from the daily grind here in Vancouver.
With my platinum status on Princess I should have some free Internet minutes on both legs of the cruise so should be able to post to this blog each day.
I had hoped to be able to upload some photos to my tablet from my camera but the 4 - in 1 gadget I brought today to help with that and designed for a Samsung Galaxie Tablet doesn't appear to fit my tablet - my model doesn't have a smaller mini-usb port but a much larger one.
If the weather is dry I may stop in at Staples which I purchased it and see if there is a solution to that problem.
Otherwise it will be mostly text reports until I get back.
