Cruise guest shares ‘must-have’ item to pack for a cruise holiday

Although cruise guests won’t have to deal with liquid limits on a cruise holiday, it can still be a challenge to pack for one.

Guests will often visit lots of different destinations during their time onboard which can make it more complicated to pack.

Reddit user ‘shelbyo’ wrote: “What are some items that are a ‘must-have’ when you go cruising outside of your normal clothes, toiletries etc?”

One guest suggested a travel mug. Another added: “If you like to drink more than four ounces of coffee, I recommend a travel mug.”

Coffee cups can be on the small size on a cruise so guests who need a strong caffeine fix each day might like to bring their own travel mug.

‘Miguel4659’ said: “All the normal things you take on any trip, appropriate clothes for the destinations.

“For cruises, usually means more swimwear, we did go to Alaska and took warm clothes and got too hot. Went to Iceland in August and it was very chilly.

“One thing we heard about and always pack are magnets. The walls are steel, so you can attach magnets with hooks on them to the wall and hang up damp swimwear etc.”

A crew member previously told he often saw passengers make the mistake of packing the wrong clothing. The deck can be very windy even in hot destinations so it’s important to bring a jumper.

Magnets can be a great item to pack as they’ll give guests a little more room to hang their clothes in their cabin.

‘Watermeme’ added: “I always bring one of those small, cheap pop up clothes hampers. Then at the end of the week, just toss it in my suitcase and it’s ready to wash when you get home.”

A small clothes hamper can be a great way to store dirty clothes out of the way of the cabin’s main area.

Cruise ship cabins are usually on the smaller side so any way of saving a little space is a great idea.

Guests could also use the ship’s onboard laundry service if they want to wash their clothes while on the trip.
