    fits the bill.

  40. Brandi

    I would love to take a NCL Caribbean cruise, I love the islands of the Caribbean and can’t think of a more perfect vacation. And I love the Pack It Mobile Locker. It love compartments and having a space for everything and keeping everything in its place and this would serve that purpose perfectly.

  41. Jay @ Wayfaring Beauty

    My favorite NCL Cruise to take would be one to the Caribbean. I went on an NCL cruise to the Bahamas years ago and it was the vacation of a lifetime – I would love to vacation with the same company again and to such a beautiful, tropical destination. I would also absolutely love a European cruise.
    My ideal Eagle Creek gear is the Flip Switch Wheeled Backpack 22. It just seems so handy! A backpack and suitcase all in one, durable, carry-on sized…the perfect travel bag!

    I’d be grateful for any prize. If I had the choice it would definitely be the Southern Caribbean sailing from Miami. For Eagle Creek gear, I love the design and versatility of the Switchback™ Max 22. I could use it for business travel or for my Reserve duty.
