What should I pack for my World Cruise?
You will be beholden to the airline weight limit when it comes to your luggage, so bear this in mind before you pack everything in your wardrobe! Some cruise lines request that guests adhere to evening dress codes for the occasional Gala Dinner, so it is worth checking the itinerary and packing list prior to your departure.
Primarily you will need to think about the destinations you are visiting and the types of excursions you might want to get involved in. As World Cruises span multiple continents (sometimes as many as six!), you will require different types of clothing to suit various climates. Some itineraries range from the desert to tropical islands to Antarctica so make sure you are prepared!
If your cruise plan includes active excursions you will need to ensure you have the appropriate clothing and footwear. We certainly recommend that you take some form of active wear for a World Cruise. Even if you are not the most active traveller, it is worth being prepared in case you are tempted by the variety of activities on your World Cruise!
Our Connoisseurs are available to give advice about packing appropriately for your itinerary; as will the cruise line. There are laundry services on board all ships, and in some cases, you will have valet laundry included in the price of your ticket. And of course, there will always be the opportunity to indulge in some retail therapy while you are away.
