We leave this Sunday on Oasis.  I feel like I am forgetting a million things! Is there a blog post or two that has "what to do before you leave" or "last minute tips"? I've almost finished online check-in and I still need to print luggage tags and SetSailPasses.

Any suggestions or helpful tips appreciated.

Here is a check list I used for one of my cruise , its not a full one , but it can give you some idea :

 

Passport with at least 6 month left until expiration that has at least empty pages +Visas if needed
Credit cards + Notify them that they might see transactions from foreign  countries 
Medicines  and first aid kits 
Prescriptions for medicines
Sunglasses 
A4 copy of each passport photo page
Passport size photos *2
Printouts of the hotel bookings + the address
Printed  ship luggage   tags 
Clear tape to attached the tags 
Small bag for the first night.
Small backpacks for the shore excursions
Copy of the sail passes after you complete the online checking 
Charges for the cellphone/camera/tablets better one that has many USB exists as the power outlets in the state rooms are limited
Copy of the flights tickets including prints of the flights back.
Camera
Extra battery for the camera and extra memory cards.
Battery bank for long shore excursions for emergency recharge.
Sandwich nylon bags for small items
Electric universal power plug for the hotels and the ship (in the ship you will find Europe and US power outlet)
Magnets to hang things in the staterooms 
Eyeglasses prescriptions 
Two bottle of wines 
Printout of any planned activities including private shore excursions 
List of emergency phone calls including Royal Caribbean phones at each country/port.
Port address both in English and the local language 
Books/cards/crosswords books/small games for the flights and ship
Driving license 
Empty plastic or metal bootless to feel water
Thermos to keep some hot water in the room (you don’t have Kettle in the stateroom nor you allow to bring one)
Shampoo/Conditioner - in most of the stateroom there is  one liquid which suppose to serve as soap/Shampoo/Conditioner so its better to bring some with you.
Folded dress shirts for official nights - usually I give some shirts to the nearest laundry and ask them to iron it and pack them folded - in the state room there isn't  Iron to use
Sunscreen 
upload songs and movies to your cellphone/tablet.
Install the airline application over the cellphone
Install offline dictionary on the cellphone
Update the roaming plans for the cellphone
Cancel newspaper subscriptions 

 

 
Money for tips 
Transfer arrangements 
Willkie talkies- a good cheap way to communicate on the ship with family and friends 
 
swimming suite
