Going on a cruise can be relaxing as well as thrilling and fun. There is so much to do during the trip that you might wonder if you will miss out on anything. It's a good idea to plan ahead for what you want to do since you won't be spending all your time on the ship, as you most likely will have planned some tours too.

What should you take to ensure you have everything you need for the trip? Packing for tours and cruises can be the most daunting thing of the entire trip. Here are some tips to help you pack for your next cruise vacation.

Pack The Right Style Of Clothing And Shoes

You might want to raid your closet and pick out your best dress for tours and cruise dinners, but is it a formal cruise? Will you have the opportunity to wear formal wear or is the trip geared toward families or a more casual experience?

Check your itinerary, which should be on the printout your travel agent gave you, or check the cruise line's website to see where the ship will go and what activities are planned. This will help you find the right style of clothing and shoes for the trip. You might plan to have a meal in the formal dining room, or you might decide to spend your mealtime at one of the other casual restaurants or buffets.

Also, what are the excursions planned, and are you going on any of them? You might need sporting wear or hiking shoes if you plan to take one of the more adventurous excursions or tours. You might need walking shoes for a historical walk or shopping trip.

Also, bring swimsuit coverups or a sundress you can wear over your bathing suit. While the ship will allow you to walk around in a bathing suit, you will need to cover up in restaurants and some stores. Also, if you plan to go swimming or snorkeling on one of your tour excursions, you will need to cover your bathing suit until you get to where you are going. It also makes it easier to already be in your bathing suit and only have to take a coverup or sundress off to get ready for your dive.

Bring A Waterproof Backpack Or Bag

You might not think of it, but it's a good idea to bring a waterproof backpack or bag with you on your tours and cruises trip. Excursions and tours can be an entire day event if not overnight at a port of call, and you don't want to have to take a piece of luggage with you for an overnight trip. A backpack can carry anything you might need from a change of clothes to swimsuits and pajamas and your toiletries.

It's a good idea that the backpack or bag is waterproof too. You could get caught in the rain on a tour and you don't want your items getting wet. You could be using the backpack for a diving trip and wet gear and clothing might be placed in it.
