Soon, we are going on a cruise for the week. We haven't been on a cruise in over 15 years. Wow, it's been awhile. So, preparing for the trip for myself and my family members (we are a total of 4 people), I started searching for guidance on what to bring for this "relaxing cruise" from the cruise lines. I looked and looked and couldn't find an actual "cruise packing list" I could use or even modify. I was really surprised that no one created a cruise packing list! So, of course, I had to create one and share it with all of you. Please share it with all your friends and family. It will help you and them immensely.
Below are the guidelines I found on what to bring and what not to bring for the main cruise lines:
Note: If you are taking kids, the last page is for them. Each kid may have different needs so I left it blank. Refer to the other list for guidance on what to add to the kids list.
This packing list is just for carry-on bag items. If you don't take all the items on the list, just cross it out. I wanted to be thorough, just in case. Also, I added a blank column so you can add specific items you want to take in your carry-on bag.
You may be wondering why there is two columns with "X"s at the top. Well, I always take my vacation checklist with me because I want to return with everything left with, don't you? So, the first "X" column is for when I am packing to leave for vacation and the second "X" column is for when I am packing my stuff on the cruise. Here is a his and hers cruise packing list. This stuff is usually place in your luggage. The column in the middle is for the extra supplies you will need.
If you have kids and need an additional checklist, here is a blank one for you. Refer to the his and her checklist for guidance on what to bring.
Making these cruise packing lists took some time but I think is differently worth it. I don't know about you, I want to be relaxing on vacation and not worrying about what I may have forgotten. I hope this helps you start your cruise vacation on the right foot. I know it will help me. Please share this with your friends and family. Have a great trip.
