Packing Tips & Accessories 

Traveling  is an adventure best planned ahead of time, and not just when it comes to booking flights and packing. 

  • Check your paspport!  Some countries require that your passport is valid for 6 months from your return date!  Children's passport expire in 5 years.
  • What to pack in your carry on bag?  Passport, All Medications, Phone Charger, Any Documents You'll Need Throughout the Trip, Any Valuables (though we recommend LIMITED amount of excess jewlery), change of clothing, toiletry kit (see about 3-1-1)
  • Most airlines allow one carry-on and one small personal bag.  Just remember ALL valuable should be packed in your carry on. 

    Travel Tip for packing carry-on: Know the 3-1-1 liquids rule. You are allowed to bring a quart-sized bag of liquids, aerosols, gels, creams and pastes through the checkpoint. These are limited to 3.4 ounces (100 milliliters) or less per item. This is also known as the 3-1-1 liquids rule.

Cruise Wear: Few issues create as much confusion or contention among cruisers as what to waear to dinner --and, more importantly, what others wear to dinner.  As cruises and cruisers have become more diverse, so has dress--both what cruise lines ask us to wear, and what we actually wear.

Just about every cruise line has a dress code of some type.  (Except for the occasional nudist charter, they all at least agree that clothing is required!)  But, from there on, dress codes range from those where dressing for dinner means putting on a clean t-shirt to those where any male passenger not in a tuxedo might as well be wearing nothing at all. 

The best advice is talk to your travel expert who can guide you based on the cruise line you are sailing.
