This is a great summer for cruising. No matter if you are visiting The Bahamas, Bermuda, or even Alaska – you’re gonna need to pack!

Going on a cruise is a great way to see the world. You can visit different ports and explore new cultures. However, before you go, there are some things you need to take into consideration when it comes to packing. In this blog post, we will talk about what you should bring with you on your cruise and what you should leave at home. Keep reading for some helpful suggestions from DealDash to make sure your cruise is amazing.

Things to Pack for a Cruise

One of the most important things to remember when packing for your cruise is the fact that you will be on a boat. This means that you need to pack accordingly – you aren’t going to be able to pop out to the store to get something you forgot. You will want to bring items that will make your time on the ship more enjoyable. For example, you might want

to bring a bathing suit so you can take advantage of the pool or hot tub. You should also pack some comfortable clothes and shoes so you can walk around the ship without getting sore feet. In addition, don’t forget to pack your sunscreen and hat. The sun can be very strong when you are out at sea. Here is a quick list to check while you’re packing.

  • Sunblock that is a minimum of 30 SPF
  • Sneakers/Socks and Flip-flops
  • Small First Aid kit with Bandaids, Neosporin, any OTC and Perscription medications you take
  • An outfit for “formal night” if you plan on attending
  • Sunglasses, hat, and swim cover-up
  • Travel Febreeze and Wrinkle Releaser
  • Extra contacts/solution and/or glasses
  • Emergency cash

Things NOT to Pack for a Cruise

There are also some things that you don’t need to bring with you on your cruise. One of these things is food. The cruise ship will have plenty of food options for you to choose from. You don’t need to bring your own snacks or meals with you. Another thing you don’t need to bring is a lot of clothes. You will only need a few outfits for your time on the ship. The cruise ship will also have laundry services if you need them. Finally, you don’t need to bring any valuables with you on the cruise. The ship has a safe for you to store your things in.
