Your guide to cruising

Packing for your cruise

Packing tips

Below is a list of tips to help you fit more into your suitcase, and your cruise:

  • Use zip-lock bags: large ones for sweaters and shirts; medium for underwear; small ones for socks and pantyhose; snack size for jewellery, labelled for each evening outfit
  • Squeeze out the air in each bag to make more space
  • Pack light to ensure you have space for souvenirs: The golden rule is half the clothes means bring twice the spending money!

What to take?

The following are some items we recommend to take on your cruise:

  • Comfortable walking shoes: as you'll be stepping off the ship to explore many exciting destinations, as well as walking around onboard!
  • At least one set of 'good' clothes: most cruises of five days or more include a formal night
  • A power point adaptor: to make sure you can plug in and recharge your appliances such as cameras, shavers, phones etc.
  • A multiple-point electricity board: just in case your room has only one or two outlets as you'll need it for recharging cameras, shavers, phones etc
  • A business-sized envelope to hold notes, ticket stubs, coins and brochures for each day of the cruise. When you get home you'll have a great 'holiday journal'
