List Down The Necessities
One of the major mistake that people make while travelling is that they take a lot of unnecessary stuff with them which later becomes tough to carry and to look after. So, if you want to get the best out of your ride then make a list of the important daily routine things that are necessary, you should make this list a week before the trip in case you miss on anything which you can add later.
While you are heading to your trip, don’t ever forget to pack your swimsuits as those are critical for you if you want to enjoy your ride. It is but obvious that you would go for swimming while you are on board and its sunny outside. Planning to go in the pool? Put your swimsuits in the luggage right now!
People who are travelling with their children are the ones who have to be more conscious about their packing. You need to put all the necessary things that your child needs in daily routine.
First Aid Box
Another most important thing is the first aid box which is a must if you are travelling with your baby. Although the cruise you are travelling on already has first aid facilities but yet you know better what suits you more so don’t forget to pack that emergency box.
Winter And Summer Clothes
Just keep this in your mind that you are travelling in water and you have to pass through many areas which have different weather. Some places might be cold, and some might be super sunny so always back both warm and winter clothes so that you can enjoy every weather.
Headlamps And Flashlights
Just in case the power of your ships is gone and it is dark everywhere and you’ve got you, kids, along then flashlights and headlamps are a must for you. Headlamps would be more preferred as they can easily be worn on the head and are easy to use than a flashlight.
The worst situation that can come up on your cruise travel is that if you get stranded on the cruise and the water and food supply of the cruise have come to an end. In that case, you don’t have to panic and just use your food storage that you brought with yourself. Buy the food which has got some proteins and vitamins in it so that you can maintain your energy levels.
You yourself are aware of what medicine you need in case you or your child gets sick. And on the other hand, it might be possible that the cruise is not having the medication that you require, so always bring your own medicine box. It is but a fact that everything on a cruise ship is double the price and so is the medicines, so avoid spending too much money on the unnecessary stuff rather bring it on your own.
As said earlier, there are situations that reported a complete power shut down in cruises and people were deprived of lights and batteries. In such cases, you must have power banks with you that can charge your mobiles and tablets so that you can stay in contact with your family and friends and keep them updated about your cruise travel.
Hand Sanitizers And Wipes
It, in fact, is a very awkward situation but there are times when the toilets of cruise ships stop working and you actually have no way out to keep yourself clean so for that kind of a disaster, you must have a huge supply of hand sanitizers and wipes to keep yourself clean and also don’t forget to keep a few reusable plastic bottles as they will aid you a lot when the toilets are blocked.
