10 Cruise Packing Tips
 
10 Tips When Packing for a Cruise
Do you start filling your suitcase a week (or more) before your cruise, armed with a packing list and smart space-saving techniques, like rolling up socks and stuffing them in your shoes?
Or do you throw a bunch of clothes into a carry-on at midnight before a morning flight and always pack the right things? Either way, you've probably learned that what you bring or more importantly, what you forget to pack can impact your enjoyment of your cruise holiday.

Cleancruising Facebook

Tip 1: Pack your carry-on bags wisely
Pack a change of clothes and important meds or toiletries in the bags you'll take on the plane and personally transport onboard. This is important for two reasons: First, if your luggage gets lost by the airline on the way to your cruise, at least you'll have some essentials with you. Second, in case your suitcases are delayed in being delivered to your cabin, you'll have a bathing suit or dinner attire on hand and can enjoy all the onboard activities right away.

Tip 2: Know the dress codes
Some like to dress in formal gowns and tuxedos for ships' formal nights, but most people dress in business attire (suit for men, cocktail for women). If you love to dress up, know that some lines do offer tux rentals so you don't have to pack your own. Allergic to formal wear? Most cruise lines offer buffet-style dining for dinner, even on formal nights or you may also have the option to eat in your cabin via room service.

Tip 3: Consider doing laundry onboard
If you want to pack light (and do laundry en route), make sure you check your ship's laundromats details, as not all ships have free laundry facilities. Laundry is a service provided by cruise lines, but it can get expensive (though cruise lines often offer complimentary laundry and pressing services to suite guests and top-tier past passengers). You can always save on laundry costs by bringing travel detergent and rinsing out underwear and shirts in your cabin's bathroom.

Tip 4: Favourite toiletries may not be in your cabin
You'll always find basic toiletries onboard, such as soap and shampoo. In main cabins on some cruise lines toiletries offered are limited (in some cases to pump bottles of mystery soap affixed to the wall), so you may want to make room in your luggage for your favourite brands. Same goes for hair dryers. Most staterooms come with weak dryers so if you're picky, pack your own.

Tip 5: Bone up on the bathrobe policy
In most cases, you don't need to pack a bathrobe. They're provided in all cabins on most luxury lines, as well as other lines like Carnival and Holland America, and in balcony cabins and above on most other lines. On Princess, they're available by request. If you're not sure if your cabin will come with a robe, read the FAQ section of your cruise line's Web site or ask your travel agent. But be forewarned: Bathrobes aren't souvenirs. You have to pay if you like yours so much you want to take it home.
Tip 6: Dress for your destination
Simply put, some places are more formal than others. Expect to pack more resort-casual wear if traveling to Europe (all regions). In contrast, other cruise itineraries are more casual than the norm, for example Hawaii, the Mexican Riviera, the Caribbean and South Pacific. Also don't forget to think about your in-port activities; thongs are fine for a beach day, but you'll want more comfortable shoes for long days of sightseeing or active excursions like hiking or biking.

Tip 7: Save some room in your suitcase
Don't forget that you're likely to pick up at least a few souvenirs during your cruise and that you'll need room in your luggage to bring them home. Consider packing an extra duffle that can fold up into your suitcase on the way to the cruise and later be filled and checked for the trip home.

Tip 8: Mix and match
If you can make your clothes do double duty, you won't be hit with excess bag fees or find yourself fighting about who gets the last hanger in the cabin's closet. Stick with one color theme so you can re-wear bottoms with different tops, or bring shirts that can be dressed up for dinner on one night and worn sightseeing the next. Opt for the layered look to handle differing temperatures in the various cruise ports. Change up the look of one formal outfit with different accessories, rather than bring two suits or cocktail dresses. Remember you'll never see most of these people again (with thousands onboard, you might not see the same person again before the cruise ends), and most won't remember if you wear the same outfit twice.

Tip 9: Remember the basics
Most cruise ship cabins don't come with alarm clocks, so if you want to know the time and set an alarm, bring your own. If you're using your mobile phone for this, make sure you don't incur roaming charges simply by leaving it on in foreign waters. Other items you might want to pack because they're not provided or super-expensive to buy onboard include: extra hangers, over-the-counter meds, batteries, camera memory cards, sunscreen, ear plugs, plastic bags for transporting liquids or wet things (or keeping water out of your gear on water-based tours), power strips and universal power adapters to charge all your electronics.

Tip 10: Keep all important documents with you
Always make sure you pack your necessary IDs and cruise documents and never pack them in your checked luggage. You'll want your passport or other photo ID and cruise ship boarding pass on hand, so even if your suitcase misses the boat, you can get onboard. Also, remember to acquire any necessary visas and immunizations necessary for your cruising region and carry them with you, too.
