Hi Airstream,
You might want to take your humidifier anyway. Better to have it and not need it than to need it and not have it, (Ha-Ha.) I sure don't blame you for wanting to travel a bit lighter though.

What everyone has said so far.
Slightly off topic: I wanted to thank you for the help you gave me on turning off my ramp. I finally got a friend to help me with that and it's been working well.
Have a GREAT time on your cruise.
You are quite welcome trish, although I don't think I helped that much. I am glad to hear you resolved the problem.
If I can ever be on any help feel free to call on me although I am not as knowledgeable as many of the board members here who I know will always offer a hand too. /Jeff/
Yes, you are right about that, there is a lot of GREAT people here and I have gotten lots of help. Thanks again.

RE: CPAP On Cruise Ship
I keep a simple two wire extension cord in my CPAP bag. Hotels are charging more but putting in less and less outlets. We are such creatures of habit and I find I just do not sleep well if I am on the other side of the bed. Between the extension cord (I think it is 10') and the really long cord on the S9, I've not had any problems since.
