I start this thread, as a JC virgin, to elicit advice on must-packs. From info I already got from some friends that have been on the boat, a water bottle, ear plugs (for successful sleeping in a quad), and flashy blinky things are necessary. Whats your top 5 must have items that one might not consider?

See ya in a week!

not sure of top 5, but one of the best tips is to bring a poster tube if you plan on getting a poster. much better for travel then the little plastic sleeves they give out.

There's a couple if links in the FAQ that might have some ideas for you, one is the packing checklist and one is the what am I forgetting thread. Both links from the JCFAQ. :) Hope this helps! :DANCE:

I would definitely say bring a lanyard for your room key. Also a watch.

Batteries, tape, hot glue gun, scissors. I always need them and usually end up lending them out as well.

sea sickness drugs and/or those wrist bands for the new kids. Everyone reacts differently to the seas and the different medications. I found the pills made be naucious (sp not even close?) but the wrist band things worked great.
