What to Do, What to Do? How Many Pairs of Shoes for the Cruise?

Update:  Now that hubby put the D800 on the insurance policy, I'm no longer worried about bringing it or leaving it at home.  It's traveling to the Mediterranean Sea with us.  Thanks for your help you guys!  

Oh man, now it’s the shoes.  14 days of cruising requires careful thinking about how I am going to treat my feet.  Heels are out of the question no matter what.  When I wear heels I feel like a little girl wobbling around even when they are just 1 inch high.  So it’s flats and comfort I’m looking for.   

I’ve got 4 nice dress outfits for the formal dinner nights on board.  3 of them are black, not completely black, but  Shades of Black.  Black is for dress up, right?  My quest to find shoes that would be suitable for this cruise has kept the UPS guy hopping with white boxes from Zappos. 


So anyway, I can wear these sandals with all of my dress outfits.  I’m good to go.  I not sure if they are comfortable enough for our shore excursions though.  I’m hoping to break them in really well so they will feel like slippers for BlogHer12.  Yes, that is my foremost thought... what is going to be comfortable enough for BlogHer12?  But let's get this trip under our belts before I start stressing and obsessing about New York.

Just the other day hubby said: More shoesBut honey, These Shoes are supposed to be the best the most comfortable black sandals ever.  Of course I need the most comfortable sandals ever, I’m going to be walking.  A Lot.  

So I needed sneakers too, and after buying few pairs of them I settled on these http://www.zappos.com/merrell-siren-sport-black-perfect-plum-nubuck?zfcTest=fw:1 to bring along on the cruise for off shore excursions. 

And here I am trying to think furiously, decide which other shoes and sandals to bring and then I remember I need water shoes!  So off to Amazon I went and got a pair of these on order.  http://www.amazon.com/Keen-Womens-Venice-Sandal-Orchid/dp/B003Z4JVSA/ref=sr_1_1?s=shoes&ie=UTF8&qid=1339209203&sr=1-1 Now that’s it!  

Each pair of shoes that I’ve bought promise to cradle my feet in comfort, which is exactly what I am going to need tromping through vineyards and up hills and mountains.  Blister pads are ordered too because no matter how comfy any shoes are, I always always get a blister on at least one foot.  

We each are packing 2 checked bags for 14 days of cruising and three days in Barcelona.  That should give me enough room for at least six pairs of shoes right?  I am not buying any more now.  

Shoes for the cruise

I promise honey.  

Do I have enough?  What else do I need for the feet?
