That Time I Made a Cruise Shopping List...

"I've traveled by plane, I've traveled by car. I've stayed in hotels, I've stayed in Airbnbs. I've been to the beach, I've visited cites... but what the heck do I need for a cruise!!!"

Don't worry. I've got your back.

I was once like you. I had never been on a cruise before, and then I realized that I would be trapped on a cruise ship which is basically a hotel/airport/dining-commons all in one! Oh, and my cabin would be approximately the size of a shoe-box...

After reading a lot of articles, going on a bunch of cruises, and  trying different things, I compiled a precise (albeit lengthy) packing list of everything I need to pack for a cruise that I share to everyone I think might need it (yes, there is a printable version!).

And then (aka RIGHT NOW) I decided to put together a shopping list for those that don't already have a lot of the items.

If you're skeptical as to why you might want some of these, I explain all of them in these articles:

  4. I have never been on a cruise before. The longest I've been on a boat was 28 hours, from England to Spain. The ship was nice and the room was quite large though so I enjoyed it.

  11. I've never been on a cruise before so I wouldn't have thought about bringing a lot of these items. What are the magnets for?

  12. I've never been on a cruise but I can imagine that you just need to be to organize in a teeny tiny little space. I'm betting it's a lot like what it's like to travel in an RV with your entire family. I'd love to know what the magnets are for.
