Packing Tips for Cruise Ships

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.

Orlando Limousine Services offers a private luxury airport shuttle service to and from all international airports in the area. The only thing you now need to plan for is how you’re getting from the airport to your cruise port.

Welcome to the Disney Wish and their adult escapes! Disney cruise ships aren’t just for the kids anymore. Though there are endless magical experiences for kids to discover, there are lots of places that are just for the adults.

The designers at Disney have come up with places adults can escape to where they can dine, relax and have an immersive and magical experience. The Disney Wish has really helped this come to life. This is Disney’s newest ship to join the fleet and it really is a unique and magical place.

Relax, Dine & Retreat and more on the Disney Wish

The Disney Wish offers its adult passengers an “onboard oasis” that’s unlike anything you’ve seen on a cruise ship. This oasis features a stunning infinity pool, bar and poolside lounge, that are just for you. The area is dedicated to “savouring drinks and soaking up the sun.”

The adult pool area is located on the upper deck away from the family areas that are busy. This area is also separate from the family activity areas as well, so you really feel like you’re in a different world.

There are also adult-only dining areas that you can visit while you on the Disney Wish. You can visit the Palo Steakhouse restaurant that was inspired by Cogsworth from the Beauty and the Beast. Here you can select from premium steaks and Italian dishes.

The Palo Steakhouse is one of three new adult-only Beauty and the Beast inspired dining areas.  You can also visit the Keg & Compass, a pub inspired by Norwegian folklore.

Things to do on your Norwegian cruise

There are so many things to do on your Norwegian cruise, everyday can be filled with activity or just take it easy. Explore the ship and try new things or find a spot by the pool and catch some sun.

“Step into a world of excitement and exhilaration in our ThrillPlex activity zones, available on Breakaway Plus and Breakaway class ships. Feel the warm sun and balmy ocean breezes along The Waterfront, our revolutionary quarter-mile oceanfront promenade.”

You also have the option to visit the Norwegians private island, Great Stirrup Cay. “Norwegian’s idyllic private island, where you can do it all – or nothing at all.” Of course there might be a night when you want to let loose and check out their deck parties and “dance the night away” at one of their parties such as, Caliente, Glow, and Nashville Nights.

We can’t forget to mention all the great entertainment you can find on the ship. We all love a good show, plus you’re on vacation, make it a night to remember. You can check out Broadway performances such as Kinky Boots, which is a six-time Tony Award winner. This performance is exclusive to Norwegian Cruise Lines. There are two other shows, Jersey Boys and Footloose.

Where to Eat 

When it comes to food the Norwegian makes sure that this is a wonderful experience. When you’re on vacation, the food needs to be good and that’s the case here. The Norwegian once again uses the freestyle approach when it comes to their dining.

“Enjoy a four-course meal and a great bottle of wine. Or grab a burger hot off the grill. Dress up. Dress down. Sit with your friends or make new ones. Dine inside or Oceanside along The Waterfront. Only Norwegian offers the freedom and flexibility of Freestyle Dining, which means no fixed dining times or pre-assigned seating. So follow your mood, not a schedule.”

All of their ships offer “beautifully crafted menus” in three of their main dining rooms, plus a variety of causal restaurants. The chefs offer original dishes that are made with only the finest ingredients.

There are so man destinations you can sail off to with Norwegian and we know that no matter what one you choose, it’s going to be incredible.
