What To Pack
The types of clothes to pack for your cruise vary depending on the length of cruise, formality of the cruise line, destination, and time of year you’re sailing. Consult your "Know Before You Go" guide provided in your cruise documents for the most appropriate attire suggestions for your particular cruise.

Most Important Items to Remember for Every Cruise

  • Cruise Documents
  • Airline Tickets or E-ticket Confirmation
  • Cruise Documents
  • Passports or Proof of Citizenship, and Visas (if necessary)
