Getting ready to set sail this spring? While cruising is a luxury all on its own, packing the right essentials will make your trip even more effortless and fabulous. We’ve got the ultimate cruise packing list to make sure you’re ready to take on any adventure your nautical adventure has in store.
Skin: Whether you’re planning to bask in the sun or enjoy that tiki drink in the shade of your umbrella, sun protection should be everyone’s first priority out on the open seas. Bring this trio of protection for body and face that will keep you looking flawless and safe from UV rays throughout your entire trip. And if you’re in need of a little extra sun without the sun, these sunless tanning towels will keep you glowing.
Makeup: It’s all about beautiful basics when it comes to your makeup routine and travel, and no one has mastered that combination better than Trish McEvoy. Her classic planners provide everything you need for your daily makeup routine while fitting perfectly in your handbag. I also like to pack a lip balm to keep my lips protected from the sun just like my skin.
Hair and nails: Continuing with the minimal effort theme any good cruise demands, forget about the hairdryer and pack a beach waves spray for effortless post-swim tousles. And keep your pedicure sandal-ready and bring a long an essential nail kit for any potential cracks.
Sandals: Your most important item to bring on any trip is shoes. I like to pack neutral options and one or two standouts to keep a stylish rotation moving throughout my trip. For your cruise, a nice block heel in a neutral color is perfect for day-to-night vacation activities. Bring along a leather pair of thong sandals for elevated comfort and add color to the mix with something like a lace-up scarf sandal for days when you want that pedicure to really make an appearance.
What’s In The Bag: A colorful and roomy tote bag can take you throughout your entire cruise. Fill it with your favorite pair of sunglasses, waterproof camera, headphones and hat so that you’re always prepared to make the most of your day at sea.
Having options without taking up any extra space is always a win-win when it comes to cruising. That’s why this interchangeable necklace that can be worn ten different ways is an awesome piece to bring no matter your destination. Pair it with a classically nautical-themed pair of hoop earrings and stack ring set for a complete look.
Even if you opted for the upgrade, living spaces on cruises are typically smaller than your average hotel room. That’s why being prepared with travel organizers is essential to keeping your things tidy and space functional during your trip. Bring along this hanging closet organizer (it flattens to fit perfectly in your suitcase) to keep your items neatly folded and easy to access. Keep your jewelry and loose items in one of these beauty cases and your clothes wrinkle-free with a travel-size steamer.
