Storage

Best Single Travel Cruise tip of the day.... Storage: Many experienced cruisers swear by over-the-door shoe bags for storing toiletries or keeping small items from getting lost in cramped cabin quarters.

Toiletries and Necessities

Best Single Travel Cruise tip of the day.... Toiletries and Necessities: The cruise ship should provide soap and shampoo at the very least (and often body lotion, conditioner and body wash), but if you're picky, pack your own. Same for hair dryers -- if you can't deal with the low wattage of in-cabin dryers, bring your favorite with you. Additional...

Entertainment: On the lower-tech side of things

Best Single Travel Cruise tip of the day.... Entertainment: On the lower-tech side of things, you'll want to bring books, magazines and puzzle books for sea or beach days -- you can't always count on the ship's library to have a comprehensive selection.

Should try not to pack a suitcase full of shoes

Best Single Travel Cruise tip of the day.... Shoes: Ladies especially should try not to pack a suitcase full of shoes.

Bone up on the bathrobe policy

Best Single Travel Cruise tip of the day.... In most cases, you don't need to pack a bathrobe.

Bringing Beverages

Best Single Travel Cruise tip of the day.... Most cruise lines will let you bring soda and water onboard, saving you the expense of paying inflated onboard rates for nonalcoholic beverages.

Keep all important documents with you

Best Single Travel Cruise tip of the day.... Keep all important documents with you. Always make sure you pack your necessary IDs and cruise documents -- and never pack them in your checked luggage.
