I overpacked. NOBODY “dresses” for dinner. Three dresses hung in the closet and were never worn. Everyone dressed neatly but casually. The guest laundry was available, and I did laundry twice in the trip.
Embarkation was well managed. We stood on a line for a few minutes to take our (negative) Covid tests, then went right onboard. Our luggage was waiting in our room. Easy!
Our AAC cabin was a good size at 300 square feet plus balcony, although we didn’t need a balcony in Chesapeake Bay in mid-November. There was storage space for us, but some of our luggage was too big to fit under our bed. Ask ACL for maximum under-bed luggage size, since the line doesn’t store luggage outside the room. Smaller luggage (maybe no more than 10 inches deep) will make embarkation and disembarkation easier.
