What To Pack


Packing your bag is the last thing to do before your adventure. Make sure you’ve got everything you need for the best holiday ever! Whether you need help deciding which shoes to pack or what size of suitcase to bring, we can help you out with a few handy tips!

It’s important to remember that all luggage, hand and check-in will be screened at embarkation and disembarkation. So don’t pack anything you don’t want us to see!

SAFETY ADVISORY: Recently, Samsung announced a global “stop sale” and voluntary recall (view recall notice here) and exchange program on certain Galaxy Note7 smartphones. Such phones, with particular lithium-ion batteries, can overheat and catch fire, posing a burn hazard. As such, please be advised that all guests in possession of a Samsung Galaxy Note7 smartphone must take the following precautions.
  • Turn off the device;
  • Disconnect the device from any charging equipment;
  • Disable all applications that could inadvertently activate the device (e.g., alarm clock);
  • Protect the power switch to prevent its unintentional activation; and
  • Keep the device on your person or nearby in carry-on baggage. (Do not place in checked baggage.)
As our guest, please follow the above precautions while traveling on any of our ships, and if possible, please refrain from taking these devices with you on board.
