Non-clothes items to pack

Most people focus on what clothes they need to take on their cruise. If a fancy one with dress codes there is lottos angst about the right mix of gowns, suits and more casual clothes. If a mixture of weather then layering dominates the packing. But you should spend as much time thinking about non-clothing items to bring. Here are some things I recommend

Here are a few helpful items to take:

  • Electrical plug adaptors. Cruise ships usually mostly have American two-pin plug sockets, using 110-120 volts and so bring adaptors as needed if from other countries.
  • Extension cord. Many cabins have limited number of plugs and so an extension cord enables charging and use of multiple items at one time.
  • Chargers for your electrical items like mobile phone, laptop and tablet.
  • Earplugs and eyeshades are often useful.
  • Personalised First aid kit. Bring remedies for you usually use for ailments such as seasickness, headaches and diarrhoea, along with a pack of plasters.
  • Guide books and maps if you are planning to self-tour in some ports.
  • Entertainment (e.g. iPod, Tablet, eBook reader, or books).
  • Small backpack to use when on excursions, to carry your camera, identification, water, and something warm, if needed.
  • Magnets. Many cruisers use these to pin daily programs and other materials on the walls, which are all metal.
