There is a place for checked bags (e.g. you're going someplace cold and warm clothes and parkas take up a lot of space). Short of equipment (cold weather, snorkeling, etc), I prefer a single carry-on (plus personal item). Especially in Europe, with cobblestone streets and no elevators (we stayed in two different places, 5th floor, no elevator). It's a nightmare to deal with more than one bag, and the have that bag weigh 50 lbs.

If I have to I'll carry a second bag (checked), but it's pretty easy to pack a single carry-on and have everything you need.
