Ultimate Packing Tips for Cruises

Who hasn’t dreamed of taking a cruise? Whether you want to head to Alaska, up a river, or simply cruise the Bahamas, you will discover that you have the opportunity to make all your dreams a reality. These floating resorts are gargantuan allowing for literally thousands of people to live, play, eat, and sleep in a very controlled and safe environment. Once upon a time, cruises cost a fortune, but today, you can literally save thousands of dollars depending on your destination and when you make your travel arrangements.


Ok, you have your arrangements all made, and the time is coming to start packing. This may seem like an easy concept – packing – but the truth is that packing for a cruise can be quite complicated. You need to take as little as possible getting the most results from what is taken. In addition, many times, you will need to insure what you pack can be taken on your airlines.


Take a look at a few suggestions to get you started…


E-ticket confirmation or airline tickets

Wallet and/or fanny pack

Vaccination certification – if required

Cruise documentation

Passports and visas, or proof of citizenship (check to see what your cruise line requires)

Medical history and medical insurance cards

Credit cards (Insure your credit card company and bank knows you are traveling somewhere foreign as they may halt your credit card because of unusual activity)

Traveler’s checks and/or cash


Contacts, glasses, contacts cleaner

Contact numbers for traveler’s checks and/or credit card companies

Most people can figure out what to pack if they think about it over time. However, the majority of people wait until the last moment to pack for their vacation. If you wait until the last moment to get your US passport or visa, you may discover you are grounded. You will need considerable time to insure you get the right documentation for your needs. You may find your travel agency reminds you of this need.


As you prepare to go on your cruise, you will discover that regardless as to whether you have been on many or this is your first one you have a lot of fun if you are prepared. Most cruise liners have amble shops and the port of calls have shops allowing you to pick up things you miss, but you will probably pay a high price for forgetting the necessities.
