Packing Tips For Cruise Ship Vacations
At Orlando Limousine Services we have some great packing tips for cruise ships, but what do you even need to pack? This might be your first cruise, so you might have a lot of questions! We think it’s important that you don’t forget any important documents as well as the essentials. This blog will go over some what not to forget and packing tips for cruise ships!
When you’re packing for your cruise it’s important to not over pack. This blog will go over some important things to remember when you’re packing. We also recommend that you don’t pack last minute, so you can avoid forgetting important documents that might prevent you from getting on the plane to getting on the ship.
Getting to the cruise port from the airport is also another thing you’re going to have to think about. At Orlando Airport Transportation we are able to provide you with a private luxury ground transportation service. Our private car service is able to accommodate most groups sizes, but we’ll go over that at the end. For now, let’s talk about packing and get excited about this cruise you’re going on!
Getting Organized for Your Cruise
When you’re really organized for your trip you can start to make lists of what you’ll need to bring. This way you can avoid forgetting to pack something important. We’ve all been there, you arrive to your destination and realize that you forgot that one thing you told yourself you wouldn’t forget.
Sometimes lists can help and you can check items off as you pack them, which is always fun. The first thing on the list might be to make sure you have all your documents in a file. This way it’ll will be easy access and we recommend that you place in your carry-on. Some of these documents should include your passport, proof of vaccination or exemption, COVID-19 test (most cruise lines require a negative test before boarding), credit cards, car keys, travel documents, etc.
How About Packing Less?
Do you find that you tend to over pack, especially for a vacation? At Orlando Limousine Services we like to recommend that you lay out all the clothes you want to bring with you. Then only pack half of what you’ve laid out. This also goes for shoes, how is it that we can pack so many shoes we don’t actually need. Even though some of like to have lots of options, most likely you won’t wear half of them anyway.
It is true that most cruise ships do offer a laundry service, if for some chance you do need to have some clothes washed you can. When it comes to this type of service, it usually come with a fee. Just make sure you are aware of the ships fees before sending your laundry off, that way there won’t be any surprises on your bill when you disembark.
Carry-On Luggage for Cruise Ships
When you pack less you might be able to fit everything for the cruise into your carry-on. But some of us need both a carry-on and a checked bag, and that’s ok. You should make sure that you’ve placed all those important documents in your carry-on so they are easily accessed.
It’s been recommended that you should also consider putting a change of clothes in your carry-on as well. You might also want to pack all valuable items in your carry-on as well, such as jewelry, medications, electronics and whatever else you feel should be kept safe and with you at all times.
How to Save Space
How many time have you just thrown things into our bag and hope it’ll all fit? This usually leads to over packing or using up more room than needed. One great tips is to rolling your clothes, because when you do this you’re creating more space. This can also be a lot of fun, which is never a bad thing.
This is an excellent for a carry-ons, lots of us only travel with a carry on, so space is limited to begin with. You should still try to cut back on the items you know you won’t actually use. Also, don’t you find that when you’re on a vacation you seem to wear the same few things the whole time? You’ll need the extra space for all the great souvenirs you’ll buy!
It is true that on a cruise you need to take some formal clothes, so take care in rolling them. Since most ships offer the laundry service you should be able to have your clothes ironed. We would also say, once you’re in your room unpack the items that need to be hung up, hopefully limiting the wrinkles.
