What to pack for a cruise? This is the question I have been as king myself for the past few weeks. My biggest fear is that I will be in the middle of the ocean somewhere and I will desperately need something. Of course I am sure the good people of Norweigen Cruises will have it available but at a premium price. I am all about saving money. I would rather be well packed!
We are very lucky to be going on the new Norweigen Breakaway this summer to Bermuda! Woot Woot! I can not wait.
So in some of my research I have found a few things that you need to pack. I made a great printable for you too.
A couple of things about what to pack.
1- Travel Coffee Mug- If you are anything like me you need a vat of coffee in the morning. I also like to be mobile. Having a travel coffee cup on hand will definitely make my life a little easier.
2- Power Strip – again this would be a big help if you are charging camera batteries, iPods, using a hair dryer, curling iron, etc.
3- Over the Door Shoe Organizer – I guess this rooms on cruise ships are pretty small. So putting out all of your bathroom accessories will never work. Go to the dollar store and get an over the door shoe organizer to store all of your toiletries. Genius!
4- Beach towel clips- do you want to be chasing your beach towels all over from the top of the cruise ship when the wind is blowing? No way! Purchase some beach towel clips before you embark to save yourself some aggravation.
5- Carry On- a properly packed carry on is a must. Make sure you have a bathing suit, cover up, sandals, proper IDs, medicines, sunglasses, camera, ready to go. There would be nothing worse than not being able to hang out while you are waiting for your luggage to arrive.
Honestly I can not tell you how excited I am for this trip. This is our honeymoon, two years later! Stay tuned for more upcoming posts about the cruise, packing, outfits, etc.
