What to bring on a Cruise?

Suitcase Cruise Packing Tips.

Are you about to go on a cruise and don't know what to pack? Are you wondering if you should dress smart or casual? Whether you are in the Norwegian fjords or traveling to the Maldives in the Indian Ocean, here you will find tips and helpful suggestions on what to bring with you on board. Do not forget that the ship's berths have very spacious closets to store your clothes and your toiletry bag objects. On the other hand, if you ever need something during your trip, you can always buy it in the many stores on board. Cruise ships are floating cities with something very similar to a shopping mall on their inside. When thinking about the wardrobe you will need, a few distinctions should be made, depending on the destination of the cruise. The Mediterranean, northern Europe, exotic destinations, or the Far East, each of these locations requires specific clothing.

The Mediterranean: During spring and summertime, your luggage should be light! Most surely the climate will be pleasant and warm in all the countries visited by cruise ships. Don't forget to bring your sunscreen, sunglasses, and everything you need to go to the beach. Autumn and winter are the ideal seasons to discover cities and their culture. It is advisable to bring with you comfortable shoes, sweaters, and waterproof jackets, along with a folding umbrella.

Northern Europe: Trekking shoes, outdoor clothing, your camera, and a backpack as hand luggage will be essential to bring with you. Given that in summer, the days are mild, and at night it will most surely be necessary to wear a sweater or a jacket.

Exotic Destinations: When traveling to exotic destinations such as tropical countries, the best advice we can give you is to prepare with summer clothes. Remember to take a waterproof windbreaker with you to deal with downpours. And in Muslim countries like the United Arab Emirates and the Maldives, bring with you clothing that is not skimpy or provocative.

The Far East: In this case, the climate can vary from Japan's temperate climate to the tropical one of Vietnam. Therefore, you should be prepared and wear light shirts, shorts, and sunscreen during sunny days. And for the most humid days, it is essential to have a raincoat, closed shoes, and a warm sweater.

Here are some tips to prepare for your cruise trip. With everything you need onboard, you can easily switch from party to party, from a dip in the pool to a visit to a mosque.
All that is left is to wish you a good trip!
