Top Things to Take on Your Cruise

Your cruise to the Caribbean, to the Bahamas out of Miami, or a Mediterranean Cruise is going to be so much fun.  Here are the top things to take.  You don’t want to forget these top things on your cruise.  If your ship stops at a beach location like the Caribbean, I suggest bringing a small soft cooler.  You can save money by taking your own water bottles and snacks.  And it keeps them cool! 

A drawstring cinch sack bag will come in handy because you can store an iPad, snacks, book, keys and passports, etc.  You could even get them monogrammed and have one for each family member.  CUTE!

I packed my Cleanser and Vaseline in these containers to save space in my carryon suitcase liquids bag.  They hold alot.  I love love love writing the contents on cute washi tape from my planner onto these.  In the video, you’ll see how little of my cleanser I actually used.  Do you wear alot of makeup while on vacation?  I want to, but I always end up not.  I packed vaseline in case your legs get chapped at a beach stop.

Go-toob to the rescue.  I was in Europe for 10 days, and this is how much I had left in the shampoo bottle.  They’re tiny but huge! top-things-cruise-shampoo

This waterproof phone case with a lanyard is so awesome!  cruise-water-proof-case-phoneBut we found that we didn’t use it all the time.  If you will be at the beach, I can highly recommend this.  It’s an Amazon Top Buy product.  Solid, and you can use your fingers through the plastic case.  I also think just a key card lanyard would be awesome especially for kids who are on the unlimited soda package and for getting on and off the ship.

If you will have time to enjoy coffee on the deck or a cool drink, we wish we would’ve taken our aluminum mugs.  The ship’s coffee mugs are tiny!  Plus you can dump the fruity drinks in there to stay cool as well.

Since we needed to carry passports, I suggest taking a Buddy Pouch that is the strongest velcro carrier I’ve ever seen.  It’s magnetized and does not budge from your shorts waist band.  We also used this Pink Portable Charger for our cell phones.  You can stick it through the hole to charge your phone while you’re on a train or bus or tendering.  Do you see the little zipper?

Totally fun thing to not forget is these clips to hold your towel down on deck.  Super windy!  They just make me smile!  They come in all kinds of beach styles.

Y’all seriously should ask for the //z-na.amazon-adsystem.com/widgets/onejs?MarketPlace=US&adInstanceId=aefa88f9-1a4c-47f1-9643-87b2c1879d16” target=”_blank” rel=”noopener”>Amazon Prime as a birthday gift!  I got most everything in my list with free 2-3 day shipping

And my all-time favorite book to read at a beach location is The Devil in the Junior League.  It is about exactly what it sounds like.  Cute but really good!cruise-pool-top-things-to-take-bahamas-

I hope you have smooth sailing and that your mind is at ease while packing!

  1. I love the idea of the magnetic board for the cabin door! I have been on a couple of cruises, before we had kids. I’d love to take the kids on a cruise sometime though!
