Here are my top ten handy things to bring on a cruise that make life a little easier when on a cruise vacation.
As a cruise expert that spends months onboard a cruise ship, I have found there are some really handy little things that make life so much easy onboard if you are on seven-day cruise to 100 day cruise.
You can buy some things onboard, but some things you can’t and I recommend you bring these ten items.
1. Mesh Laundry Bags
Set of 6 Mesh Laundry Bags, Reusable Mesh Zippered Laundry Washing Bags Large Mesh and Fine Mesh for Machine Washing Lingerie, Tights, Socks and Underwear – If you use the washing machines onboard use these handy little mesh bags to put your delicates inside to protect them and keep them delicate! Also, no one can see anything fancy inside!
2, Laundry Bag
Large Laundry Bag – It is much easier to store your dirty laundry in a nice bag, then if you need to wash some laundry onboard it looks much nicer carrying this bag than a plastic bag from the souvenir shop! Also, when going home just put this bag straight in your suitcase.
3. Protective Covers for Valuables
Noaks Bags Set | 5 piece (XS/S/M/L/XL) protective covers – These are such a handy thing to have while travelling to keep all the valuable items clean and away from water damage. Also good for keeping food in while travelling all day.
4. Packing Cubes
eBags Packing Cubes – 4 piece Classic Plus Set – I cannot live without these! They make packing so much easier and create a lot more space in your luggage. Also, use them in draws or in the closet in your cabin to keep yourself organised.
5. Portable Phone Charger
Portable Power Bank External Battery Charger for iPhone, iPad, iPod, Samsung Galaxy and More – (Lightning Cable Included) – We use our phones for everything, camera, internet, games, as a phone, texting and using the millions of apps we have! The battery always runs out quicker than we expect, so these handy portable phone chargers charge your phone on the go without needing to find somewhere to plug in your charger!
6. Magnetic Hooks
Strong Powerful Heavy Duty Magnetic Hooks – The walls in your cabin are magnetic! So make use of this by bringing magnetic hooks, to hang up jewellery, your lanyard with your cabin key, hang coat hangers on, handbags, scarves, hats, etc. Also, to stick paper to the wall.
7. Beach Towel Pegs
Beach Towel Clips Large Sized Plastic Towel Pegs Quilt Clips for Sunbed – Do you get annoyed when your towel moves or the wind keeps blowing it? Well these beach towel clips are great for keeping your towel right where you want in on your sunlounger!
8. Travel Coffee Mug/Water Bottle

Ceramic Travel Mug – Keep your tea or coffee warm and drink it out of a ceramic mug on the go. Stop wasting paper cups!
9. Wrinkle Release Spray
Travel Wrinkle Remover – The last thing you want to do on vacation is ironing! As soon as you unpack hang up your clothes and spray wrinkle remover on them and the wrinkles should fall out.
10. Stain Spot Remover Pen
