1. Base Layer

This is also known as a moisture management layer. This is the layer that is next to your body or your skin whose work is to move any form of perspiration away from your skin irrespective of the weather conditions and keep it dry. 

The good thing about it is that it will help to keep your body warm against any form of coldness or chillness from the winter.

In addition, the base layer clothes are made from the best fabric such as synthetic wool, silk, or bamboo fibres that can heat the body and keep it warm. 

So, therefore, you must avoid any fabric which can’t heat your body against cold and also can’t retain moisture. Some of these include cotton as they can’t.

Best Recommended Base Layer Materials

There are a wide range of fabrics to select from but the most recommended fabrics are those fabrics that can retain moisture and are quite durable such as polyester, nylon, or natural fibres such as Merino wool and silk.

Base Layer Weights

It is important that you opt for fabrics that are heavyweight or thicker as they will help to keep you warm and moisturized. So try and get one when you can.

Warm-Weather Base Layers

Below is some of the fabric underwear that can make you feel comfortable regardless of the coldness and what you should consider when getting them. They include

A. You should look for any summer shirt or outfit that has heavyweight. They are regarded as the base layer fabric.

B. Some shirts designed for warm weather spread the moisture out through the fabric, where evaporation helps with cooling. 

They aren’t regarded as the base layer fabric but they are the next-to-skin layer, they can increase your comfort in hot conditions.

C. Underwear like briefs, boxers and bras should also wick as well when you wear them during winter.

D. Look out for UPF-rated base layers as they will give you some added sun protection.

E. Avoid clothing made from cotton as your base layer wear. This is because they can’t protect your skin from the coldness of the weather. Rather, it is mostly worn when you are in the summer season.

F. Lastly, you can opt out of fabrics like wool as they will help to cool your skin as well as give you great comfort.

B. Middle Layer

This layer is also called the insulation layer. It is the layer after which you must have worn your base layer fabrics. They help to retain the heat that has been excreted from the body while maintaining the body’s radiation. It requires a fabric that can withhold the heat as well as keep your body warmer.

Best Recommended Middle Layer Materials

The best type of fabric for this middle layer is those that are much thicker and warmer at the same time. However, the best set of fabrics that meets these requirements includes woollen tops and others.

A. Polyester Fleece 

It is a 3-in-1 type of fabric that serves all purposes. These fabrics tend to stay much warmer, and damp and it dries faster. It tends to breathe as well as when necessary.

You can also try out wearing wind fleece with a well which includes an inner wind-blocking membrane.

B. Down-Insulated Jackets

This is another fabric that you should consider. It is very highly compressible for easy packing and offers more warmth for its weight than any other insulating material. 

The efficiency of down is measured in fill power from 450 to 900, since down is always inside a shell material, down jackets also offer some water and wind resistance. The drawback to down is that it loses insulating efficiency when damp.

C. Synthetic Insulated Jackets

They are the most popular option for rainy conditions because they retain insulating ability when they get damp. The fabric material offers added water and wind resistance.

C. Outer Layer

The outer layer protects you from wind, rain and snow. It is also known as the shell layer. It ranges from pricey mountaineering jackets to simple wind-resistant jackets which makes room for perspiration.

However, the outer shell is an important piece of fabric that helps during the stormy season as it allows wind and water to penetrate the inner layers.

Furthermore, they are classified into some categories which include:

A. Waterproof/Breathable Shells

This is the most expensive choice as this type of shell is good for a full-on condition. Generally, pricier equals drier, though higher-priced shells are often more durable as well.

B. Water-Resistant/Breathable Shells

These are more suited to drizzly, breezy conditions and high activity levels which makes them more affordable than waterproof or breathable shells.

In addition, they are typically made of tightly woven nylon or polyester fabrics that block light wind and light rain.

C. Softshells

This type of shell emphasizes breathability with its features of the type of soil, stretchy fabric or panels which will help to add more comfort.

Most feature stretch fabric or fabric panels for added comfort during aerobic activities. Many combine light rain and wind protection with light insulation, so they in effect combine two layers into a single jacket.

The mid-layer provides insulation. It should be a bit looser than the base layer, but to function properly it needs to maintain contact with the base layer. Mid layers also carry moisture away from the base layer to the outer layer.

A common material for mid-layers includes down polyester, fleece, wool and newer synthetic/natural blends. Much mid-layer clothing has extras such as armpit zips, long front zippers, and adjustable cuffs and collars.

C. The Outer Layer

The outer layer blocks wind and allows moisture to escape. Typical outer layers include shells made of Gore-Tex or a similar material. Extras such as pit zips, ankle zippers (for pants), and a variety of ventilation options are standard.

Outer layers should also be tough enough to withstand tears and abrasions. Other less high-tech options may include wind-resistant materials or water-resistant fabrics.

If you’re finally going on that dream cruise ship and you’re confused as to how to pack for it, you’re in the safest hands possible. This article shares how to pack for a cruise.

One of the most thrilling and opulent modes of transportation is cruising. Picture yourself relaxing on the deck while viewing breathtaking ocean views while drinking a drink. 

Exploring foreign locations and enjoying onboard entertainment are just two of the many options available on a cruise trip. But there’s one important chore you have to finish before you leave: packing for your trip.

It takes careful thought and planning to pack for a cruise; it is not as simple as throwing some clothing into a suitcase. 

It can be difficult to pack for a trip where there are so many activities and events planned. But don’t worry! This article will give you the basic information you need. 

The following sections of this article highlight the main things that should be in your travelling case when going on a cruise. These sections will contain information that explains their headings better. 

Travel Documents For A Cruise

The following travel documents are mandatory to bring:

  • You should carry two forms of official identification. The best documents are a passport and a driver’s license.
  • Cards proving health insurance: In case you want medical assistance while cruising, bring your medical insurance ID card.
  • Travel insurance: If you have travel insurance that you paid for or that is included as part of your credit card benefits, you should bring a list of your benefits with you in case you need to claim while you’re on vacation.
  • Admission Tickets: Your ticket onboard the ship is your cruise boarding pass. Additionally, you should print off copies of your cruise and travel plans for storage.

Activity-appropriate Clothing and Shoes

Check out the itinerary on the cruise line’s website before you start preparing for your trip. What’s your destination? What seaside activities have you scheduled? Do you intend to solely eat at the nightly buffet or will you also eat in the formal dining room? Regardless of your answers to these questions, Below is the basic clothing you should include when you pack for a cruise. 

Formal Clothes

On the majority of cruises, you should pack at least one formal attire for “formal night.” For ladies, a dress and for men, a collared shirt with a button-up front, a tie, and dress shoes.

Swimwear and Cover-Ups

The majority of travellers choose Caribbean cruises because they prefer to spend their shore excursions at the beach and by the pool. 

Bring at least two swimsuits, as it could take some time for them to dry out. Bring along at least a couple of bathing suit cover-ups, sundresses, or shorts and tee shirts since you can stroll around in your bathing suit but must wear clothes and shoes to enter the restaurants and casinos.

 A Sweater

You might not anticipate feeling cold while on a cruise to a Caribbean island, but at night, the open sea can get frigid. 

You’ll need a thin sweater to keep warm as restaurants and the casino can also be a little cool.


 The importance of bringing comfortable shoes on a cruise cannot be overemphasized. 

You can pack other comfortable footwear as there’ll be lots of onshore excursions and you’d want to be comfortable during them to fully enjoy your time there. 

Travel Gear For A Cruise

You should pack a few goods that will come in handy while travelling the ship or going offshore in addition to stuff that you can store in your cabin. They include: 

Refillable Water Bottles

These allow you to avoid the price of purchasing single-use plastic bottles. Bring a portable filter if you want to enhance the flavour.

A Tote Bag

Having a tote bag or backpack can make on-land excursions easier to navigate because you can safely store your money, beach gear, and souvenirs inside. 

If you wish to do a little shopping at the cruise port, a tote bag is very useful. Throwing everything you buy into a tote bag makes it much easier to carry than fumbling with many shopping bags.

Waterproof Camera

Using a waterproof camera at the beach or while snorkelling may be a lot of fun. You can spend less money than buying a camera by purchasing a waterproof phone case or waterproof camera bag. 

Backup Battery Charger 

During cruises, you’ll usually have to take turns with others to use charging ports. 

This means your electronic devices won’t always have a full charge, and most cabins only have one US electrical outlet and one European one. 

So, you’d want to bring a backup battery charger with you so you can switch to it if your phone’s low and there’s no charging port available. To make utilizing the European outlet simpler, you can also carry an outlet adaptor. 

Medications and Cosmetics 

1. Bring Sunscreen And Sunburn Relief Products

 You’ll use more sunscreen than you can imagine during a cruise because whether you go to the beach, the pool or on excursions, the sun is there too.

 Apply sunscreen liberally and frequently, especially if you’re travelling somewhere with a lot of sun exposure, like the Caribbean.

 2. Bring Your Bathroom Supplies 

While many cruise companies provide free shampoo and conditioner in the bathrooms of the staterooms, it’s unlikely that these are the same items you use at home. 

So, we advise you to pack your own shampoo, conditioner, and hair care supplies. If you’re taking a longer cruise, then it’s also wise to pack a razor and shaving cream too. 

3. Bring Prescription Medication/Seasickness Medication/ Indigestion Medication.

It’s very important that you take along with you any prescription medications you take regularly. Also, Benadryl and Dramamine are two well-known medications for treating seasickness. 

Lastly, since you have access to a wide variety of foods that you might not often eat in real life, antacids and other similar medications can help you avoid heartburn and indigestion.

4. Carry A Small Travel First Aid Kit

 Having a small kit with bandages, ointment, and sunburn lotion on hand while travelling might also be helpful.

5.  Cash for Tipping

Holding cash is always better and more convenient when travelling. 

Tipping tour guides, bus drivers, and other service providers are usual if you want to take shore excursions.

Also, local vendors will most likely prefer cash to transfers or cards. So all in all, going with cash is a safer route. 


So that’s it! Packing for a cruise is quite easy and with this guide on how to pack for a cruise, it’ll even be easier for you. 

That being said, we hope you have a swell time on your cruise adventure! 


Can You Bring Cash On A Cruise?

Cash is not accepted in any of the onboard stores, eateries, bars, spas, or other amenities, however, it is customary to give a room steward, your waiter, or another crew member some money if you feel they have provided exceptional service.

Do I Need A Passport For A Cruise?

Everyone embarking on a cruise from the United States is advised to carry a passport book. Although a U.S. passport may not be necessary for all “closed-loop” cruises, you should still pack it in case of emergencies, such as an unanticipated medical air evacuation or the ship docking at a different port.

How Much Can I Pack On A Cruise?

The amount of luggage that can be transported on a cruise is not restricted. Most cruise lines advise customers to bring no more than 100 pounds (or around two suitcases) of luggage. Additionally, carry-on luggage is permitted. However, it is best to confirm this with specific cruise lines.

What Is A Cruise Package?

Cruise lines provide inexpensive bundles called “cruise packages” that include and pay for extras like airfare, lodging before a cruise, shore excursions, and ship credits.

Cruise excursions can be exciting and interesting, from engaging in interesting activities like looking out the windows to enjoying the view while travelling to conversing with schoolmates or co-workers on interesting topics. 

You can also take pictures and videos of events & places that are quite interesting. Cruise travellers always want to consistently engage themselves in fun and creative activities. 

At the same time, travelling, sometimes they may also feel the need to lie down & sleep or even use the restroom, but they worry endlessly about how to protect their belongings on their cruise excursion or in the ports to enjoy themselves.

Being a victim of theft on a cruise ship cabin, at the beach, or at the port is a rather unpleasant experience. This article describes various anti-theft cruise excursion tips that will save you from being a victim of pickpockets while travelling.

How To Protect Your Belonging On Cruise Excursions

1. Utilize Luggage Tags

This is the first step you must take in order to keep your cruise excursion belongings safe.

Your luggage tag should have your name, cruise ship cabin/room number, destination, and bag weight so cruise stewards can easily detect your luggage and hand them over to you.

Be very cautious about providing very personal & private information like your home address, social security number, or workplace address on your luggage tag because thieves can easily take pictures of the tag and track down the personal information provided on it in order to steal from you.

2. Utilize Luggage GPS Trackers

About 99% of luggage that contains luggage GPS trackers are found when stolen or misplaced and returned to the cruise travellers who own them. 

All you need to do is purchase a competent luggage tracker and a compatible smartphone in order to operate the tracker effectively. 

Just before you go onboard the cruise ship, ensure you drop the GPS tracker inside your luggage and then keep the compatible device close at all times to always be sure of where your belongings are.

3. Make Use Of Luggage Locks

Never underestimate the use of locks on luggage or, better still, make use of luggage that already has customized locks.

You could use combination locks, TSA-approved locks, biometric locks, keyed locks, smart locks, or luggage with built-in locks.

It is much easier to enjoy the excitement that a cruise excursion has to offer when the valuable belongings stored in your travel luggage are safely locked up. 

4. Double Check All Luggage Brought Into Your Cabin

The luggage brought to your cabin by the porter should be cross-checked for accuracy. You may use your luggage tag or GPS tracker to ensure that the luggage handed over to you isis right. 

Once you confirm your luggage, the porter may be allowed to leave.

5. Do Not Use Cabins That Lack Privacy 

In order to protect your travel belongings on a cruise excursion, you should book cabins that offer total privacy. Avoid cabins that limit comfort & privacy, cabins that are too noisy, and cabins that may obstruct your view.

6. Always Wear A Crossbody Bag

Personal items like a wallet, money, smartphone, and the keys to your cabin are packed in a crossbody bag. 

A crossbody bag makes personal items easily accessible and, at the same time, very safe because thieves will consider it near impossible to snatch personal items from a cruise traveller who carries a crossbody bag. 

7. Always Lock Your Cabin

It is essential to remember that you are among strangers, and you cannot fully trust anyone yet. 

While you may be trying to observe the travellers on the same cruise excursion as you and making acquaintances, you must see it as compulsory to always keep your cabin locked with all your valuables in it.

8. Offer Free Tips To Your Cabin Attendant

While you are out to explore the view on your excursion, chat with acquaintances, participate in exciting games, and take pictures and videos of yourself and acquaintances, you may need to consider offering your cabin attendant free tips to get him or her to help watch over your cabin and protect your belongings.

After certain hours of being out, the tipped cabin attendant will report to you about the state of your cabin whenever you arrive.

9. Make Use Of Your Personal Security Camera

A cruise traveller is free to utilize his or her security CCTV camera onboard. 

Once you have your camera installed in the cabin where you have organized all your travel belongings, you will no longer have to worry about theft because the camera will detect any form of burglary while you are away.

10. Consider Traveling Light

Boat cruise travellers who possess light luggage that does not contain many valuable items are automatically ruled out of the list of potential thieves. 

Thieves only look out for travellers who look flashy, travel expensively and possess items like excessive cash, expensive phones, laptops, wrist watches, or jewellery. 

Also, the travelling light automatically saves your luggage from too much pressure, breakages or cracks while you are in transit.

11. Be Cautious Of Where You Fall Asleep

It’s no one’s fault that cruise excursions can sometimes get exhausting, but it is rather wise to consider the risks of sleeping off quite carelessly on a cruise ship. 

Falling asleep on cruise ships may cause you to lose some valuable items from your bag or probably attract the prying eyes of thieves.

If you are fatigued while travelling, it is best that you communicate with your fellow travellers and go into your cabin to get some rest after carefully tucking away your valuable belongings.


Is It Safe To Take Jewellery On A Cruise?

Even costume jewellery can be expensive, so keep it in your carry-on luggage. Once settled in your stateroom, you can lock up your jewellery, passport, wallet, and other valuables in the safe.

Do You Need To Take Your Passport On Trips?

You should not take your passport unless your tour requires it. We recommend bringing your driver’s license with you as a form of identification.

Can I Lock My Luggage On The Cruise?

Luggage can only be locked with a TSA-approved lock, and all hand luggage must fit into the X-ray machines.

How Can I Protect My Luggage From Theft?

Invest in a sturdy ID tag. Lock your checked bags with a TSA-approved lock. Place a copy of the boarding pass in your checked baggage. Take pictures of the contents of your checked baggage just before you put it all in your bag to prove your case should you need to file a claim.

Do You Need A Passport For Shore Excursions?

We recommend that anyone taking a cruise from the United States have a passport. While some “closed loop” cruises may not require a US passport, we recommend bringing one in case of an unexpected medical air evacuation or a ship docking at an alternate port.

Can You Get Off A Cruise Ship Without An Excursion?

You absolutely do not need to take shore excursions on a cruise, and you can come and go freely from most cruise ships when they are in port. Shore excursions are one way to explore the areas visited by the ship and participate in available off-ship activities.

How Much Money Do You Need For A Cruise?

Most guests bring $50-$120 in cash daily to spend during the cruise. You’ll have plenty of opportunities to shop duty-free, take exciting shore excursions, shop for local souvenirs, take your chances at the casino or enjoy some pampering at the spa.

Do They Check Your Stuff On The Cruise?

Screening for a cruise is fairly simple. The attendant will check your boarding pass, and then your luggage will be x-rayed while you go through the metal detector. All your carry-on bags will go through an X-ray, which looks just like what you would encounter at an airport.

Do Customs Officers Check Cruise Ships?

US citizens on cruise ships are not required to go through a thorough screening process. The majority of cruise ship passengers calling at US ports are US citizens.

Can I Bring A Bike On The Cruise?

On the embarkation day, a small amount of non-alcoholic beverages (i.e. sparkling water, sodas, energy drinks, juice and milk) may be carried on board in cans or cartons, which must be carried in the guest’s hand luggage.


In order to enjoy your cruise excursion to the maximum, adherence to these efficient safety precautions on how to protect your travel belongings on cruise excursions will limit the risk of losing them to pickpockets or having them misplaced.

We hope you found this blog post very helpful and picked several excellent safety tips from all the luggage safety precautions described in this article. 

Using a rolling suitcase for travel provides a satisfactory travelling experience. Sometimes, one rolling suitcase may actually not be enough to pack all of a traveller’s belongings.

There are permanent & resistant leather add-on straps and basic man-made fibre add-on straps made of plastic attachments. 

A traveller who might handle up to three or more carry-on backpacks at once should use the resistant & long-lasting leather add-on straps. 

At the same time, a traveller who will be travelling light with just a small backpack and his or her rolling suitcase should use the plastic attachment man-made add-on straps.

Method 7 – Utilize Customized Matching Suitcase Sets
