Packing for My First Cruise: Follow-up

This post is a follow-up to a previous post.


Previously, I wrote about packing for my first cruise and how I would do it differently. For the most part, I think that I packed pretty well. The weather was unseasonably cold both in Orlando and Nassau due to the snowstorms up north. In Orlando, I found myself in pants and a sweatshirt the entire time. So what would I have done differently?

      1. A lanyard for my Seapass. When on board, your Seapass is everything from your ID to your credit card and it needs to be on your person at all times. A lanyard is a great worry-free solution.

     2. An extra sweater; even though the temperatures were unseasonably cold, it gets chilly outside on the boat at night

     3. An extra pair of pants. See above.

     4. A casual cross body bag. Something to carry my things in that I’m not worried about getting a bit dirty.

This being my first cruise, I felt like it really took me two full days to get the lay of the land. As I mentioned in my cruise write up, Royal Caribbean had us participate in a scavenger hunt around the ship. This was really helpful in getting to know the ship. I definitely recommend taking a ship tour or creating your own scavenger hunt, particularly for the 3-night cruises. I would also really get to know the daily cruise itinerary. There are so many things to do and it’s great to know your options. What are your cruise tips?
