5 Products You Need in Your Cruise Travel First Aid Kit

5 Products You Need in Your Cruise Travel First Aid Kit - Lucy Williams Global

Here are 5 products you need in your cruise travel first aid kit, as when you are going on a cruise ship it is a good idea to bring some essential items that you may not be able to get on board or ashore.

I like to travel with a first aid kit with a few products I know work and the instructions are in English.

Having something on hand is much easier than finding a pharmacy when travelling.

Many cruise lines do sell a small selection of medication in the stores onboard, but remember they are not always open – only when the ship is sailing.

So if you are in need of an Advil for a headache it’s best to bring your own.

Therefore, it is a good idea to add these 5 products to your cruise packing list for your next cruise.

I am not a doctor, but I carry these products with me when travelling.

Please seek medical assistance if needed and always read the label of any medication before you take it.

First Aid Kit

You could just bring a small travel-size first aid kit to cover a lot of issues and there are a lot of great kits available on Amazon.

Having a first-aid kit when you are out on shore excursions or walking around the cruise port is always helpful to have in your day bag.

Cruise Travel First Aid Kit

My first aid kit essentials are these 5 products that I always bring with me when travelling on a cruise vacation, a land vacation or even a weekend break:

Ibuprofen / Paracetamol

Ibuprofen is good for headaches, fever, back pain, muscle pain and other body pains, as per the packaging label. Or your pain relief medication of choice.

Plasters/Band-Aids

For minor cuts – from cutting your finger to blisters on the back of your heels, band-aids are always handy to carry around.

I don’t how many times I have needed a band-aid for a cut on my heels from my shoes rubbing after being out on tour all day.

Allergy Tablets

I have allergies and I always carry allergy medication in my bag. Allergic reactions can start at any time so it is always good to have a packet handy.

Travel Sickness Tablets

If you are going on a cruise, it is good to bring some travel sickness tablets.

Even if you do not get sick, if it gets rough it might hit you. I generally do not get sick, but if it has been very calm seas and then the weather changes I can feel queasy.

Motion sickness medication can be taken for cruise, car and plane sickness.

Heat Cream

Heat cream is my go-to cream for sore muscles after the gym or walking around all day.

I would rather apply heat cream onto the muscles than take an Ibuprofen.

Heat cream always hits the spot after a long day and is a great pain reliever.
