As your stateroom may not be available for a few hours after you board we recommend carrying a small bag onboard. Depending on your cruise itinerary this may include a bathing suit or a light jacket. You should also include your passport, sunscreen, any medications you may need and eyeglasses.
If you are travelling with small children make sure to carry their food, change of clothes and of course their favorite toy. Spending the first few hours discovering the ship can mean a lot of walking so wear comfortable shoes.
