So your cruise departure is in a week’s time and you are unsure of how you should pack for your trip? These essential cruise travel tips will help you finalize your packing:
Roll and Fold Clothes Properly
A stack of clothes awaits you when you start your packing. Roll your clothes so that they do not take up too much room in your suitcase. You can even fold them properly to reserve space for other items. You should be able to pack all your clothes by rolling them, but if you can’t here’s a trick. Mix and match your clothes and leave the rest! You will have plenty of combinations to wear, while saving some space for other items in your suitcase.
Know the Dress Code
Knowing the dress code of your destination will help you a lot in packing. Find out the trends and fashion there and limit your packing to those trends only. Obviously, you would not want to feel awkward wearing something that is not the destination country’s style!
Emergency Medical Kit
Not many travelers understand its importance, but an emergency medical kit is a must-have item in your suitcase! What if you get sick or injured on-board and there’s no doctor around? Prepare for the worst and carry a small medical kit with all the essential items in it.
Save Some Space in your Suitcase
You are going to visit a new country and explore different places, so wouldn’t you like to get souvenirs and other things? Of course, you would love to! Save space for these things in your suitcase so you are not hit with extra luggage charges.
Keep all Documents Handy
When traveling, you should always make sure that all your important documents are handy and are not packed with clothes in your suitcase. These documents include your visa documents, passport etc. so packing them in your suitcase would be a very bad idea.
Avoid Packing Liquid
Packing a liquid is a big No-No! If you do, you are risking your whole luggage. Liquids can spoil your clothes in case they loosen up and spill. If, it is essential to carry a liquid, put it in a zip-top bag to protect your clothes and other luggage items.
