You may also have to deal with noise if your cabin is located near a nightclub or engine room. Bring along earplugs to ensure a good night’s sleep.

3. Passport and birth certificateRoyal Caribbean says you’ll need these documents if you are cruising internationally. They suggest making copies of each important document and keeping them with trusted family members back home.

4. Appropriate attireCruise Critic recommends learning the dress code for your particular cruise and packing accordingly.

5. Portable charger — Outlets in cabins can be limited and you may be on the go often during your cruise. Royal Caribbean suggests bringing a portable charger for smartphones, tablets, and cameras so you never lose power.

6. Wrinkle-release spray — Most cabins do not have an iron because it presents a fire safety hazard, explains Royal Caribbean. If your clothes have been packed tightly in your luggage and you don’t want to look like you’ve slept in them, this spray is invaluable.
