Packing for a Cruise

Fancy dress with an extra pair of shoes for the formal nights

Non-surge protector extension cord to share the one plug that is typically available in the room.

Flip flops (to walk around the ship)

Extra swimming suit/aloe/tanning lotion/sunscreen

Snorkeling gear

Metal Magnetic Hooks to hang wet clothing, snorkel/scuba gear etc

Waterproof camera

I also bring a pad and paper so I can keep track of events on board, where we have been and things I liked so I can document my trip when I get home -- or just bring my phone and set alarms

Some cruise ships allow you to bring your own soda pop or alcohol, you just have to call them and see what their rules are. This is a great way to save money, as the soda on board can get quite expensive. If you are flying to a destination then going to get on the ship, find a nearby grocery store or gas station and pick up your good there before you get onto the ship.

Some dollar bills to tip the room's assigned bell boy/girl

(Optional)

  • Decorations for the Door
  • Bring your own mud mask, have a spa in your room
  • Tweezers, scissors
  • Swim suit cover-up
  • Hat
