Packing Your Bags: Caribbean Cruise Edition
Today, I am going to show you guys exactly how I packed for my honeymoon to the Carribbean. Adam and I took a cruise with Carnival Cruise Lines and sailed on their Fantasy boat. It was a dream. I wanted to show you guys what I packed and how I styled it. Let’s do this.
I definitely over prepared for my cruise. I brought at least two or three outfits that I never wore, and just took up space in my suitcase (story of my life. oh it’s a four day cruise? better bring 6-8 outfits a least). However, never having been on a cruise before, I feel like it was better that I packed too much instead of too little. Next time, I will know exactly how much to bring and can fill that extra space with more souvenirs (which would have been IDEAL).
The big thing was that Adam and I were sharing a suitcase. We had to fly from Idaho to St. Louis to get married, then from St. Louis to Miami to board our ship, then from Miami to Louisiana for our second reception, and then from Louisiana to Utah and drive the four and a half hours home. We didn’t want to pay for two bags on all those flights so we jam packed our bag and each brought a backpack and a carry on. We each got half of a suitcase and whatever didn’t fit, we had two additional bags to fill. We really didn’t need any more space than that, and we saved on luggage expenses.
In My Suitcase:
Day One: Port of Call in Miami / Out To Sea
Day Two: Key West Excursion / Dinner
Blouse: Bohme — similar here / Shorts: American Eagle — similar here / Shoes: Born — similar here / Necklace: Made by my photographer Michelle — similar here / Swimsuit: Victoria Secret — exact suit here / Cover-up: Hope Ave — similar here / Dress: Target — exact dress here / Shoes: Target — exact pair here
Day Three: Cozumel Excursion / Fancy Night
Day Four: Day At Sea / Dinner
Swimsuit: Anthropologie — similar here / Coverup: Hope Ave — similar here / Shoes: Old Navy — exact pair here / Top: Bohme — exact blouse here / Pants: Target — similar here / Shoes: Target — exact pair here
Next time I cruise, I won’t pack as many outfits, because I just didn’t wear them. The most important thing to remember is to bring your swim suits and nice outfits for dinners. Most of the time you’ll be by the pool or the beach, which is where you want to be anyways.
