Packing Tips for Your Cruise

The most exciting trip you’re going to take will be your first cruise, well we think so anyway. There’s a lot to consider when packing, such as, excursions, weather, formal wear and more. What you plan on doing and the type of cruise can determine what you’ll need to pack.

However, a lot of what you’re going to need to pack might be similar no matter what type of cruise. There are many types of cruises someone might consider, typically the one you’re taking from Port Canaveral, Florida will be a tropical cruise. ACE Luxury offers an exclusive cruise ship transportation service with professional drivers with service to and from your cruise ship terminal.

With destinations to places such as the Bahamas or the Caribbean! One of the first steps to getting for any trip is planning your outfits and creating a packing list. The fun and the sun are waiting, so let’s talk about what you’ll need to pack and give you an idea of what your list should look like.

Planning and Packing for Your Cruise

You’ve book you’re cruise and you’re getting excited, finally it’s time to plan and pack. There’s a chance that this is you’re first cruise, so you’re not sure what you’ll need to pack. That’s ok, that’s why we’re here, to help you plan what you’ll need and what you might consider packing.

First thing we need to figure out is what the weather will be like, if you’re leaving from Florida, it’s most likely a tropical cruise. Therefore we should plan accordingly, sunny weather and beaches. Don’t forget your sandals and flip flops, but also think about bringing some running shoes or sneakers. We suggest this due to the fact that you might take an excursion and need some good footwear. Also consider formal nights, bring some nice shoes to wear to those fancy cruise ship dinners.

Speaking of formal dinners, you’ll want to make sure you pack some formal attire. Cruise ships are known for their formal dinners, plan accordingly and don’t forget to pack the proper shoes. These formal nights require dresses or blazers, think fancy dinner at a fancy restaurant and dress how you would to that sort of place.

Of course you’ll need sleepwear, to make sure you’re cozy in your cabin after a long day in the sun having fun. Accessories are also always welcome if you choose to pack those and toiletries as well. Think, makeup, hair accessories and more, we’re giving you the ideas and what those details mean are very individual. You’re also able to purchase a lot of things on the cruise as well. There’s no need to stress over something you’ve forgot to pack, most likely the cruise has it.

Transportation to Your Cruise Ship Terminal

The last thing you’ll need to plan for is your transportation from the airport to your cruise ship terminal. At ACE Luxury, we offer a private cruise ship limousine service with professional chauffeurs.

You can count on our airport limousine service to deliver you to your cruise ship terminal on time and in luxury. It’s often recommended that you arrive a day or two in advance of your cruise.

Cruise Tips Part 4: Getting Back Home

Avoiding the stress of disembarking and remain in control of your vacation by using a private transportation provider. In this blog post, the crew at Ace Luxury offer their best cruising tips gathered from 35 years of experience transporting cruise guests to Port Canaveral.

To continue enjoying the last hours of your cruise do some preparation on the last night. If you don’t have a flight soon after docking you relax and take your time leaving.

Tip #1: Check All Nooks and Crannies

Check under beds for that missing flip flop, often a piece of clothing becomes caught behind the drawer. Look behind couches and under couch cushions for items left behind, such as loose change, jewelry.

Look over the bathroom for any personal items you want to keep. Most of the cruise ships have a safe in each room where you can store your valuables. Usually in your safe you’ll keep; passports, jewelry, cash and or travellers checks. Make sure you check and recheck the safe for your property.

Tip #2: Prepare for Disembarkation the Night Before

To avoid the stress of filling out forms at the last minute, the night before disembarking, prepare yourself to go through customs. Make sure you have all the paperwork filled out and declare any items of value that you must report. This will help avoid the hassle while also trying to get everyone off the ship.

Go over the printout of your onboard account when it is delivered the final night of the cruise. If there are any mistakes you will have to go to the reception desk and settle your account. The lines may be shorter if you go right away instead of the morning of disembarking. To avoid any last minute surprises, check your account regularly throughout the cruise.

If you have luggage service make sure you reserve the time and place where your luggage can be found for pick up. Ask when and where you can collect your liquor purchases that were stored for you during the trip. Some cruise lines do not allow off ship purchased liquor to be held in the cabin.

Tip #3: Prepare to Disembark

Disembarking is not as easy as just walking off the ship as you would in a hotel. There are a lot of procedures to follow and may seem daunting and confusing. If you prepare the exit the last night of the cruise you will have a much smoother disembarkment.

There’s no need to stress where you parked your car after the relaxing cruise you just took. Continue your vacation and remain in control by using Ace Luxury Transportation. When you need a ride from the ship to other accommodations, schedule your Ace Luxury driver to come pick you up. We offer a selection of private luxury vehicles that can fir most groups, as well as child seats if they are needed.
