• How to pack for a cruise

    2016-01-11

    When preparing for a trip on both land and sea, packing can be a little challenging. You don't want to pack too much, but you need a variety of clothing for the cruise's island stops and there's always that chance it will be cold out on the ocean at night. However, there's no need for too much stress. Packing for a cruise may be a lot easier than you think. According to these online travel sources, there are a couple of essential travel tips and tricks for packing for a cruise:

    Pack as light as possible
    Don't forget that most cruise ships have a store on board to supply you with most of the essentials, including sunscreen and toiletries, according to USA Today. It may even be worth it to leave a couple of these items behind to make more space in your bag. There are probably shops at the port's your cruise stops at as well, so try not to stress about the little items.

    Find out if there's a dress code
    Most cruise ships no longer have fancy dress codes, but some still have a couple of semiformal evening events that require specific clothing, according to the Cruise Critic. It's very easy to search your cruise by name and see the dress code for each day. A little research can prevent you from becoming stuck in an awkward situation where you're underdressed.

    Remember your chargers
    Nowadays, people rely heavily on their phones and laptops, although it's not recommended to bring your computer with you unless you have to. Forgetting your charger can be a problem. However, you won't have to worry about your phone or camera dying on you during your trip if you've brought backup batteries and even an extra charger in case something happens to the other, according to Fodors Traveler.
