12 Things You Should Always Bring On A Cruise Ship

Travel Documents:

Ensure you have all necessary travel documents, including your passport, cruise tickets, and any required visas.

Medications and First Aid Kit:

Bring any prescription medications you may need during the cruise, as well as a basic first aid kit with essentials like pain relievers.

Travel Insurance:

Consider purchasing travel insurance that covers medical emergencies, trip cancellations, and other unforeseen circumstances.

Appropriate Clothing:

Pack a variety of clothing options, including swimwear, casual wear for daytime activities, formal attire for formal nights, and comfortable shoes for shore excursions.

Sunscreen and Sun Protection:

Protect yourself from the sun with sunscreen, sunglasses, and a wide-brimmed hat.

Sea Sickness Remedies:

Even if you don't typically experience motion sickness, it's wise to bring seasickness remedies such as wristbands, patches.

Power Strip and Adapters:

Cruise ship cabins may have limited electrical outlets. Bringing a power strip and any necessary adapters ensures you can charge your devices conveniently.

Reusable Water Bottle:

Staying hydrated is essential, especially in warm climates. Bring a reusable water bottle to fill up and carry with you during shore excursions and onboard activities.

Backpack or Day Bag:

Use a small backpack or day bag for excursions, carrying essentials like water, sunscreen, a camera, and any purchases you make during your travels.


While cruise ships offer a variety of dining options, having some snacks like granola bars or trail mix can be convenient for between-meal munching or during excursions.

Travel-sized Toiletries:

Although cruise ships provide basic toiletries, having your preferred brands in travel-sized containers ensures you have what you need.

Waterproof Phone Case:

Protect your phone and other valuables from water exposure during beach visits or water-based activities by using a waterproof phone case or pouch.
