Booked a cruise and not sure what to pack? Here are some tips...


Pack a few T-shirts to pair with jeans or shorts. They also come in handy when there are unforeseen accidents that require a change of clothing.

Bikini and swim shorts:

 No cruise is complete without a bikini or swim shorts. It would be hard to resist a suntan or swim at the pool deck. The number of bikinis and swim shorts you pack will be dependent on the number of days of the cruise.

A good moisturiser:

Summer is the perfect time to moisturise and hydrate your skin. Ask your dermatologist to recommend the best one.


 Protect your skin from the harsh sun by applying sunscreen before you step outside. The last thing you want is sunburn when you get back from holiday. 

A shoe for every occasion:

Pack a pair of sandals, a good pair of running shoes and a formal pair. These would come in handy for the activities on board.

Something elegant:

Dress up for dinner with an elegant dress or suit.
