Packing Tips for the First-Time Cruiser

The Ultimate in Safety, Service and Satisfaction

Cruising is one of the most enjoyable ways to see the world. To make sure you set sail without a hitch, you need to pack conservatively– especially if this is your first cruise.

What you should pack will depend on how long you're at sea, what corner of the world you are visiting and what excursions you plan to experience.

Here are our essential packing tips to get the most out of your cruise.

1. Pack a smaller bag

Your bags will need to go through security, which may take a few hours. It is a good idea to pack a smaller bag with the essentials you need for your first few hours on board.

2. Seasickness medication

Sea waves don't affect everyone, but if you find yourself feeling queasy, prescribed meds are your best bet for relief.

3. B.Y.O.B.

Most cruise companies will allow you to bring one or two bottles of wine aboard.

4. Earplugs or headphones

If your room is close to a high-traffic area, nightclub, or the engine room, you may be thankful that you brought earplugs or headphones.

5. Roll your clothes

A helpful packing tip is to roll your clothes, which gives you more space to bring back gifts.

6. Photograph your luggage and I.D.s

Take a photo of your luggage on your mobile in case you need to show it to the staff looking for your lost bags.

7. Take a sweater or jacket

Evenings can get chilly in the middle of the ocean. Be sure to grab a cozy sweater or two.

8. Mini-portable speakers

Relax on your balcony, watching the evening's sunset with the love of your life over some melodic tunes.

9. Formal wear

Formal wear dining evenings are optional, but if you would like to dress up one evening, take one of your show-stopping dresses or dashing suits.
