When you’re on a cruise, preparing for port days is a little different than planning for your typical outing back home. You want to be prepared so that you don’t have to return to the ship early or spend your precious time shopping for supplies at your destination. On the other hand, you’ve probably got a packed schedule, and the last thing you want to do is lug around a bunch of stuff you won’t end up needing.
Here’s what we brought during our two port days at Nassau and Disney’s private island, Castaway Cay.
What we brought:
room keys/ship i.d. cards for all members of our family
passports for all members of our family
a few dollars in cash
change of clothes for our daughter
towels (provided by cruise line)
What we left behind:
wallet (you know how wallets can get: packed to the gills with expired credit cards from ten years ago and coupons for free sandwiches.)
car seat/booster seat (neither stop required any driving)
snacks and drinks
Is there anything you’d add to the “bring” list? Let me know in the comments section.
