OK, I've never really seen the point of packing cubes before now. But with a 3-week long trip coming up next year (two weeks cruising and just shy of a week in Ireland after that), I'm thinking that it might be time to take the plunge. If nothing else, having some of those things means we have a place to jam dirty laundry to keep it separate, instead of just throwing it pell-mell into one designated "dirty stuff" suitcase at the end of the trip. I found a good explanation of the different types, recommended brands for each type, and how to work with them. Wanted to see what you good folks here use, and if any of it lines up with the recommendations from that link. I'm leaning towards the compression type of packing cube, since we not only need to pack two weeks worth of clothes (with a plan to use the ship's laundry service at some point after the first week) but also need to pack a variety of things for layers when we're in Greenland and Iceland. Being able to compress that down, even a bit, will make it a lot easier to fit each person's stuff into one checked bag and one carry-on. I'm a little nervous about going over the 50-pound per-bag limit on checked luggage with two weeks of stuff to pack, but if I do it's not as bad since I only need to fly to get back home (cruise departs from Cape Liberty).
