Step 1: Prepare a carry-on bag Prepare a carry-on bag with travel documents, your passport, medications, sunblock, and one change of clothes and underwear. Tip Place toiletries and medications in plastic zippered bags to prevent accidental leaking onto your clothing. Step 2: Lay out versatile clothing Lay out casual clothing that doesn't wrinkle easily, and that you can wear more than once without washing. Choose versatile pieces that can be worn in different ways. Include a sweater or jacket. Step 3: Choose a swimsuit and sandals Choose a swimsuit, a pair of sandals or flip-flops, and something to cover up with if you prefer a bit of modesty while walking to the pool. Tip Pack at least two swimsuits so you never have to put on a cold, wet suit. Step 4: Place shoes in a plastic bag Place a pair of comfortable walking shoes in a plastic bag. If you go on any excursions, you can place your sandy, dirty shoes in the bag to keep other clothes clean. Step 5: Pick out a formal outfit Choose one to two formal outfits and a pair of shoes for formal dining. Tip Check with your cruise line to find out if there is a dress code for dining. Some cruise lines have semi-formal and formal dining standards that may require you to pack additional clothing. Step 6: Choose another bag Pack a small duffel bag to use for items purchased during your trip. Step 7: Place film and batteries in a bag Pack batteries, camera, accessories, chargers, and any other electronics in a plastic bag. Step 8: Put everything in a large suitcase Put everything except the contents of your carry-on bag in a large suitcase and get ready for your departure. Bon Voyage! Did You Know? Did you know?
