Vacation time! Cruises are relaxing and rejuvenating, but packing for one can be a nightmare. What should you bring? What will you need? You don't want to bring your expensive camera just to drop it in the water.
Less is more when it comes to packing. However, there are some nifty gadgets that are sure to improve your next cruise experience. Before you fill your suitcase with Hawaiian shirts and sunscreen, get on board with these six must-have gadgets.
1. Capture amazing underwater video
Between the crystal clear waters, schools of fish, and coral reefs, scuba diving is a beautiful experience. If only you could record that experience and have it for a lifetime. Well, now you can. The Liquid Image XSC scuba mask comes with a wide-angle video camera embedded in the mask, perfect for "hands free" videography. This durable camera records up to 2 hours of HD 720p video and takes up to 700 images with a 136 degree photo lens. It even comes with a USB connector for easy video upload. (Amazon, $190)

Paying unexpected fees for overweight luggage is no way to start your vacation. Luckily, with the Tarriss Jetsetter Digital Luggage Scale you'll always know exactly how much your bag weighs before you get to the airport. Whether your scuba gear is heavy or your travel partner is notorious for packing too many shoes, this handy scale will save you the embarrassment of having to repack in the airport or hand over your money.
