10 Useful Must-Bring Things To Pack For Your Next Cruise

couple-on-beach-w-cruise-ship

Wondering what to pack for your the big cruise coming up? I have been on many cruises so I speak from experience.  There are useful items most people forget to pack that can be extremely useful on a cruise.

We know packing for a cruise is not like packing for a normal vacation.  You need to plan ahead and bring anything you may need because you are confined a moving vessel in the middle of the ocean for sometimes multiple days at a time.

Being prepared will help you enjoy the most out of your cruisin’ adventure.  And no need to stress… I have some helpful packing tips for you!

1

Sunscreen

Very important!  And not just while traveling… it is wise to use sunscreen to protect yourself everyday.

According to the EWG:

Many sunscreens have problematic ingredients and poor UV protection and make overblown claims.

This all-natural sun care is made with 100% non-nano zinc oxide, safest option according to EWG experts.  For a safe & effective sun care option, grab this now!

Sunglasses

The style and shape are really subjective but no matter what your preference, you must bring sunglasses!

You can never go wrong with a pair of unisex Ray-Bans.  Classic, durable and very fashionable! I always go for a polarized lenses to improve clarity while reducing glare and eye-strain.

Antibacterial Wipes

I have been known to get inside the cruise cabin and pull out a few wipes then proceed to clean the remote control, phone, door knobs, light switches. 

I have also used these on flights where I read that seat belts are magnets for germs! 

These antibacterial wipes are amazing!

Hand Sanitizer

I’m not a total germaphobe but after being out, I like to clean my hands. Think about doorknobs and everything else you touch while in public!

I will do anything to remain healthy. 

I like gentle hand sanitizers without toxic chemicals.

This one is EWG Verified and kills an unprecedented 99.9999% of germsand while leaving your hands feeling nourished and moisturized.

Travel Steamer

On a formal night, you might want to dress up in a fancy dress or wear something nicer than the usual cruising attire then realize that your fancy dress has wrinkled throughout travel… ugh. 

This portable travel steamer is super lightweight, making it the perfect travel companion.

Band-aids

Several years ago I went to New York City with some friends and wore horribly ill-fitting shoes… I think all of us did.

Not one of us prepared to walk as much and as far as we did. My heels were raw from where my ballet flat rubbed against the skin and even sneakers were too painful to wear.

I popped into Duane Read and bought a bunch of band-aids then wore flip flops for the rest of the trip.

Its totally common sense, but I always forgot to pack band-aids until then.  Now I try to carry a few in my makeup bag at all times, you never know when you are going to need one or two.

On vacation, you have to bring them. You’re going to be walking, hiking, exploring, you don’t want to get blisters!

Motion Sickness Relief

Though I enjoy cruises, I don’t enjoy having motion sickness which I do about 90% of the time if I don’t take something.

Many people find relief from motion sickness using natural relief patches, pressure point bracelets and anti-nausea wristbands.

These motion sickness wristbands help relieve nausea from morning sickness, chemotherapy, surgery, car sickness, etc.

These are safe, reusable & washable and have been reviewed by over 5000 Amazon customers.

Pill Holder For Small Items

A small case for carrying various items comes in handy!

This compact case works well to separate small things like earring and the above-mentioned safety pins or anything else you can think of that’s small.

You could use this one for your supplements, pills and your jewelry… it’s so big!
