23 Essentials You Need On Your Cruise Packing List

So you're going on a cruise vacation. Congratulations, we're a bit jealous of all the people-watching, sweeping sea views, and over-the-top entertainment options that lie ahead of you. But, before you sail off, there is one major hurdle to get through: deciding what to pack for a cruise.
Every seasoned seafarer will tell you how important it is to have all the cruise essentials you need on board. The stakes are much higher when you forget to bring an everyday product since you won't be able to pop into a local supermarket and pick up a spare. Instead, you'll be stuck buying from a ship shop, which can be notoriously overpriced.
But fear not, sailor, for we have compiled the ultimate cruise packing list. From Amazon essentials to chic accessories that keep the tiniest cabin organized, here's everything you need to embark on a sea voyage in style.
