When it comes to packing, little tricks can make a big difference… that’s why there’s never enough tips for packing luggage.
First thing we find really important when it comes to travel tips for packing luggage for Cruises to Europe is how you distribute your cruise ship wear and accessories among different bags.
Namely, most people will go cruise Mediterranean sea with at least three types of bags:
Check-in luggage will usually be your larger rolling luggage – you should pack the bulk of your stuff in your check-in luggage but don’t pack things you cannot do without for a couple of days!

This section talks about travel tips for packing luggage, with focus on your carry on luggage. Carry on luggage is usually your smaller rolling luggage – here you should pack everything you could possibly need in case your check-in luggage gets lost or delayed.
Now, we all hope it won’t be our luggage that gets lost and delayed, but after 7 years of intense travel we can say… sooner or later, it happens to everyone and it’s very uncomfortable to be without your clothes for a few days when you go cruising the Mediterranean.
Having experienced this ourselves many times we could really sympathize with the cruise guests who walked around the ship wearing t-shirts provided by the cruise line, wistfully looking at everyone else dressed up for their first night onboard.
So, have at least one evening and one day outfit in your carry-on luggage, especially if you’re headed on a shore-excursion the very next morning.
When cruising the Mediterranean, your luggage doesn’t even have to be lost or delayed for you to think about everything that you will need in your cabin upon arrival.
Namely, your suitcases will be taken from you upon check in with the cruise line and you may only get them delivered to your cabin later on in the afternoon or early that evening.
That’s why, if you dream of heading to the pool straight upon your arrival, don’t forget to pack your bathing costume in the carry-on bag you’ll be taking straight onboard with you!
Also, for cruises to Europe it’s important to have a pashmina, a lighter jacket or a jersey in there as well, you never know what kind of weather could be waiting for you at the point of your arrival.
