We’ve gathered some ideas that might make traveling just a little easier. Whether you are traveling by air to get to your port city, or if it’s been a while since you’ve gone on a vacation, you might find something here to make your travel experience easier. While traveling on board a cruise ship, most all your needs will be met already, but don’t forget all those fun on shore excursion trips you’ll be enjoying! You will probably want a small travel day pack, comfortable shoes, and an extra memory card for your camera to save all those photos you’re going to be taking!

Anytime traveling by air, you should remember to keep all important documents, medications, eye contacts, travel papers, and perhaps a change of clothing and a toothbrush in your carry-on bag and not in your checked luggage. If your flight is canceled or delayed after you have checked your baggage, think about what you will need with you while you are potentially separated from your luggage overnight.  A well-organized carryon bag is essential!
