How to Pack for a Cruise

Posted on 04. Jun, 2015 by in Summer, Travel, Travel Accessories, Vacations

If you are planning to go on a cruise anytime soon, the one thing you should not do is wait until the last minute to pack. Although you may have gone to the store to purchase everything you need, waiting until the last minute to pack your things increases the chances of you forgetting something that you really need. Even if you do not have the time nor patience to pack right now, here are some things you can do to make the task less time consuming and daunting.

Make a List

Start a week or two before your departure date and make a list of everything you plan to take on your cruise. Do not forget to include the essentials, such as lotion, sunscreen, extra medication and toiletries on your list.

Start Small

In the days leading up to your departure, pack at least list three to five items you plan to take. Consider rolling your clothes to make more space for other things, and to reduce the amount of luggage you need to take.

Double Check Your Plans

Look at your itinerary and plans several times to ensure that you are not overlooking anything. Check your bags and travel documents to ensure that you have everything you need while you are aboard your cruise. Do not forget to include traveler’s checks, a copy of your passport, birth certificate and other essential travel documents.


The last thing you want to do right before your vacation is panic. Panicking makes it easier for you to forget things, and much harder to enjoy the thrill and freedom you gain from escaping the doldrums of the city.

Cruises are great vacations that can be taken at any time. They are affordable, provide a wide variety of entertainment and enable you to explore the world in a fun and engaging way. Make sure you take the time to plan your trip accordingly to enjoy everything that it has to offer.
