Just google "what to take on a cruise" and it will take you to several very good lists.

It is very ease,, take all you want out and place it on your bed, ,, Then put 1/2 of it back. and pack the rest

There is a packing list article on the main site. Some of the information is out of date though. Here is a link.

One other thought...

I have packing lists saved on my computer (depending on the length of the cruise and if there are 3 or 4 of us going ~ older son misses some now that he is in college)

I also have a LOAD LIST...that makes sure everything I packed gets in the car.

Documents
Airline Tickets
Passports
Black Suitcase
Pilot Bag

etc etc etc

I literally check off that list as it goes into the car.

I think I should do that!

I left my garment bag once (formal dinner clothes) resulting in a trip to K-Mart on St. Thomas. That is the craziest K-Mart I've ever been in.

One thing I always take now is a light jacket/windbreaker. It can get chilly on deck sometimes. Also a long sleeve shirt for the shows, it can be cold in there as well.

A few things that are always on the packing list for me besides clothes and the obvious requirements of proper documents and money are:


  • My "Cruise-atude" (patience, great attitude, not looking for things to complain about)
  • Immodium
  • Ginger supplements
  • Meclizine (in case it gets bumpy and the Ginger fails to work)
  • Extra batteries
  • Power strip and all chargers
  • Mini first aid kit for shore excursions
  • Sunblock for every sun occasion
  • Hand sanitizer (in several forms)
  • Hi-lighter for the capers (too many things to miss)[/list]
    These are just a few.

Bem - great advise - my wife and I always say at the end of a cruise that we brought too many clothes and next time we'll bring less - something happens in between and we do it again. I even made a list at the end of one cruise of what I actually wore - still brought too much the next time.

I always over pack the clothes too! I cut it in half and it was still more than I needed. I do take a lot of shirts that end up not being worn.

If anyone in your group wears glasses - - -don't forget the eyeglass repair kit.. It's saved many a day.
