Top Things to Pack for a Celebrity Caribbean Cruise


Top Things to Pack for a Celebrity Caribbean Cruise

Packing a suitecase for a Caribbean cruise - Leisure Travel Enterprises

A Celebrity Caribbean cruise is perfect for relaxing, recharging, and making lasting memories. But, getting out onto the open sea only to discover that you’ve come unprepared can quickly turn a carefree vacation into a frustrating situation. 

To help you avoid any unwanted surprises on your vacation, we’ve put together this list of top things to pack for your Celebrity Caribbean cruise. 


What Clothes Should You Pack for Your Caribbean Cruise? 


An island getaway isn’t complete without a swimsuit – or several. Whether you’re lounging poolside, soaking in the sun on the beach, or taking a dip in the ocean, a swimsuit is a must. And, considering the length of your cruise, you’ll want multiple swimsuits to change into. 

There are also other activities to consider. Swimwear that works for lounging or casual swimming may not function as well for snorkeling, surfing, or more strenuous swimming.


Casual Clothing

The Caribbean is paradise… a very warm paradise. Light, casual clothing is essential when exploring the shore or roaming the deck during the day. Casual clothing is also great to slip on over your swimsuit before heading back to the room. 


Formal Wear

Of course, it wouldn’t be a Celebrity cruise without formal dining. The appropriate formal wear is a must for dinner in the main dining rooms or one of the specialty restaurants. 

For women, consider cocktail dresses, blouses, and pants. For men, sweaters, button-down shirts, sports coats, and blazers are all great options.



While the days aboard a cruise ship are warm, the evenings can be surprisingly cool. Once the night breeze starts rolling over the ocean, you’ll want something to take the chill off. A light sweater will not only keep you warm, but it can also double as formal wear. 


Active Wear 

If you’re planning on hiking, kayaking, or performing other activities requiring strenuous exercise and possible exposure to the elements, consider packing active wear like water and mosquito-resistant shirts and pants, hiking shoes, or ponchos.



There’s nothing quite as beautiful as the Caribbean’s blue, sun-dazzled waters. But without the proper protection, they can be a little too dazzling. A pair of sunglasses will keep you from squinting and shielding your eyes all day when you should be living in the moment.


Proper Footwear

Proper footwear can mean the difference between a relaxing outing and an uncomfortable one. Pack a pair of sandals for beach days or afternoons at the pool, formal shoes for dinner, and casual shoes like sneakers for general wear. 


Packing Tips

Considering the number of clothing items, it’s important to know how to pack them to maximize the space in your suitcase and keep everything organized. Here are some tips to help you pack for your Celebrity Caribbean Cruise.

Roll Shirts and Underwear

Rather than folding small items like shirts and underwear, consider rolling them. Rolling is more efficient and takes up less space in your suitcase, allowing you to fit more items. 


Use Packing Cubes

By compressing your items to make them as small as possible, packing cubes give you more space and make packing much easier. They also help with organization, saving you the frustration of digging through your suitcase as you look for certain items. 


Sink Stopper to Wash Delicates

There may be certain items you’ll want to wash either to wear again or clean before putting them back in your suitcase. A sink stopper is a convenient, economical solution for giving those items a quick rinse. 


Pill Organizer

Medication bottles can be bulky. And, if you’re packing more than one, you may even lose track of them. Instead, use a pill organizer to keep everything organized, accessible, and easy to find. 


Other Items to Include

To make sure you’re prepared for your cruise, here is a checklist of other non-clothing items to consider.

  • Plugs and chargers
  • Sunscreen
  • Lip balm
  • After sun lotion
  • Insect repellent
  • Travel documents
  • A backpack or day bag 
  • Toiletries
  • Resealable bags
  • Water bottle
