Cruise Ship Hacks

  • Seasickness is quite rare on cruise ships under normal conditions; the large size of the boat removes almost all of the rocking motion that causes the problem. But if seasickness is an issue then use a cabin in the middle of the ship, which has the lease rocking of all.
  • It is easy to lose the key or keycard to your cabin. Prevent this by buying a lanyard.
  • There may be a charge for using Wi-Fi on board. This is cheaper if you book in advance.
  • Cruise Ship now often have apps that let you check your account and look for complimentary services of events.
  • There is often a cruise ship app that lets you text/call other members of you party.
  • Pack a power board. Many rooms only have one power outlet, so a power board lets you (and your cabin mate) use several devices at one. A power board with USB outlets is a bonus.
  • There is often a USB point on the Television. Use this for charging your phone or device.
  • Keep electronic devices to a minimum. As long as you can take photos and connect to Wi-Fi you won’t need too much else.
  • You won’t get your luggage delivered to your cabin straight away, so have a day bag with a few basic items to use for the first few hours of the trip.
  • Pack a portable clothesline for drying a few items.
  • Pack a few magnetic hooks co you can hang up items in your cabin.
  • Separate your luggage items with sealable plastic bags – sock in one bag, underwear in another …etc. Have one bag for laundry items.
  • Have a sealable plastic bag to keep your phone and other devices dry when near the pool.
  • Use luggage that is small enough to store under the bed. It is inconvenient to have luggage taking up space in a small cabin. If you leave the luggage open under the bed you can use this for storage, rather like a draw.
  • A collapsible organizer is good for storing clothes.
  • A battery operated light, like a candle, is a good option if you don’t want the cabin lights at full intensity.
  • Some ships have a sale with their on-board shops on the last day of the cruise. This may be the best time to shop.
