We asked our salty sailors for their best advice when it comes to packing & prep. See what they had to say below!
Pack and then take half the stuff out, you’re not going to wear nearly as many clothes as you think. Overpacking is the worst! You’ll want space in that suitcase for fun stuff/merch that you will inevitably buy.
- Jeree R., Brooklyn, NY
Bring a big empty bag to separate your clean and dirty clothes! You may not wear everything so it may save you a bit of laundry when you get home.
- Kelly L., Hoboken, NJ
If you’re going with friends, delegate who can bring what. Shampoo, conditioner, body wash, curling iron, etc that can be shared. You don’t really all need to bring the same stuff.
- Jayda K., Franklin, TN
Bring motion sickness pills/oils....start using them a couple days before we set sail..it will help!
- Shannon N., Astoria, NY
