Pack for Your Cruise 

You’re getting ready for your cruise vacation and now you need to pack! What do you even need to pack? If this is your first cruse you might have a lot of questions and we would too. It’s important to make sure that you don’t forget any important documents as well as the essentials. 

Sometimes when you’re excited for a trip you want to pack way too much, this list will go over a few key important things you should try to do. It’s also recommended that you don’t pack last minute. This is to avoid forgetting important documents that might prevent you from getting on the plane to getting on the ship. 

There is one thing we know for sure, that you’re going to have an unforgettable vacation. Getting to the cruise port from the airport is also another aspect to this vacation you’re going to have to think about. At Orlando Airport Limousine we are able to assist you with this. We offer a private luxury car service, but we’ll go over that at the end. For now, let’s talk about packing and get excited about this cruise you’re going on! 

Get Organized 

Being organized is something that should be done with all aspects of life, but some of us need to be reminded. When you’re really organized for your trip you can start to make lists of what you’ll need to bring. 

When you make things like a check list, you’re less likely to forget something important. Make sure you have all your documents in a file that will be easy access and place in your carry-on. Some of these documents will include your passport, proof of vaccination or exemption, COVID-19 test (most cruise lines require a negative test before boarding), credit cards, car keys, travel documents, etc. 

Packing Less 

Somehow a lot of us seem to over pack and then we don’t even use half the stuff we brought with us. So we need to try and pack less, to achieve this its recommended that you lay out all the clothes you want to bring with you. Then remove half of the clothes and pack just that only. This also goes for shoes, how is it that we can pack so many shoes we don’t actually need. 

Most ships do offer a laundry service, so if for some chance you do need to have some clothes washed, you can. Now these usually come with a fee, so make sure you are aware of the ships fees before sending your laundry off. That way there won’t be any surprises on your bill when you disembark. 

Carry-On Luggage 

When you pack less you might be able to fit everything for the cruise into your carry-on. But some of us need both a carry-on and a checked bag, and that’s ok. You should make sure that you’ve placed all those important documents in your carry-on so they are easily accessed. 

It’s been recommended that you should also consider putting a change of clothes in your carry-on as well. You might also want to pack all valuable items in your carry-on as well, such as jewelry, medications, electronics and whatever else you feel should be kept safe and with you at all times. 

Create More Space 

If you do over pack but also want to safe space, consider rolling your clothes. When you roll your clothes you’re creating more space for more. It can also be a lot of fun, which is never a bad thing. If you’re also trying to pack with only a carry-on, you’ll be able to ensure there’s enough room for all the clothes you had planned on taking.

We still recommend that you cut down and take less. Don’t you find that when you’re on a vacation you seem to wear the same few things the whole time? However, on a cruise we are aware that you need to take some formal clothes, so take care in rolling them. Since most ships offer the laundry service you should be able to have your clothes ironed.
