10 Essentials You Need for Your Next Cruise
Packing these essentials will make your cruise go much more smoothly and you will not have to pay premium ship prices for these items.
Sun protection is vital when going on a cruise, especially if you are going to warm weather areas. Your body is not used to the harsh UV rays, so keep sunscreen handy to avoid sunburn and sun poisoning.
Pack a travel medicine kit with essentials such as over-the-counter medications to help with sea sicknesses, pain relievers, and diarrhea.
Cruise ships are hot spots for the norovirus so keep antibacterial wipes handy to wipe down surfaces in your stateroom on a regular basis.
These small bags come in handy for storing a variety of items. Put snacks in them for day excursions, or use them to keep things dry while on the beach.
Make sure the ship allows power strips before you bring them aboard. If they do allow them, they are handy to have when re-charging your electronics at the end of the day.
Pack extra batteries for your camera, flashlight, or any other battery-operated devices you need to bring aboard the ship.
Bring a flash drive so you can regularly back up your photos while on the cruise. You never know when you will lose a camera.
Bring an expandable bag that can carry all your poolside essentials. Another use is to bring it offshore and fill it with the shopping goods you have purchased.
These hooks can increase the storage space in your stateroom and bathroom. Suction them to the wall and you are ready to go.
You will be happy about the bubble wrap when you purchase delicate items and want to transport them back safely.
