Now, what to pack for a cruise?

There are many things that most people would not think to pack and which can be extremely useful on your cruise because cruising is a little different from any other vacation.

You only unpack once a week, because the boats are like a luxury hotel on the sea that gives you a pleasant trip and becomes your second home.

You will see many new destinations, days filled with adventurous trips with various activities/excursions, or relax all day - and yet you still have the same accommodation, reliable, delicious food, and comfort every night.

Travel documents

Most importantly, you first need to pack critical personal documents, without which you are not going anywhere.
Valid passport or ID card, airline tickets and itineraries, health insurance, local currency (in Croatia, it is the kuna), and debit/credit cards.


During the day, the main thing is to make sure that your cruise clothes are comfortable for relaxing on a boat or exploring on land.
For a sea day, where you will enjoy swimming, sunbathing all day, be sure to pack a bathing suit, flip flops, hat, and sunscreen. Shorts, a T-shirt, or a kaftan for such a day are sufficient.
For walks around the cities, bring what you feel happiest in and comfortable shoes, with prior checking the climate for a specific destination.
It is also a good idea to take a scarf or light sweater if a cold breeze blows.
Be sure to pack appropriately for any offshore trips.
