What are your fail-safe cruise packing tips?
“A cruise can involve a lot of walking when you’re in port every day. Comfortable shoes are a must.” – Frances Sarrett
“Plan on mixing and matching. I always bring a cute day dress that can double as a pool cover-up and some type of wrap for evening. Public areas on the ship, such as dining rooms and theaters, can be quite chilly.” – Michelle Andersen
“A Cunard Line Gala Ball may call for a tuxedo, Ascot-style hat, or black-and-white outfit. On Virgin Voyages, it’s ‘more than a bathing suit, and kindly consider shoes.’ Confirm the dress code and number of formal nights, if any, in your cruise documents, or ask your travel advisor.” – Rob Clabbers
“I always take an extension cord with a minimum of three sockets, as I often need to recharge the batteries in my camera, phone, and computer.” – Jonathan Phillips
