Cruise Carry On Bag – How to Pack Like an Expert

You are excited and ready to board your cruise. But have you given enough thought as to what you need to pack in your cruise carry-on bag?

This really does need some thought as your checked luggage might take until early evening to reach your stateroom.

So you need to make sure that you have everything with you that you need for your first hours on your cruise.

Apple AirTag

Wine Carrier
