    Hello, I am sailing with my family to the Caribbean but we don't know what to bring. If someone can help us we would love to hear it. Smiles,

    Hi, Adilson!

    If you're like me, packing for a family vacation can be stressful! I tend to overpack, because I want to make sure I have EVERYTHING we may need. Thankfully, Disney Cruise Line has created a packing list that helps keep things simple!

    First things first, you'll need a day bag for Embarkation Day, as your luggage may not arrive in your stateroom until a few hours after you board. Here's what you'll need in your day bag:
    • Medications, in their original containers
    • Passport and travel documents
    • Camera and accessories
    • Prescription glasses or contact lenses
    • Swimsuit
    • Sunscreen

    Here's a list of clothing and accessories to pack in your luggage:   

    • Sundresses
    • T-shirts
    • Shorts
    • Sandals or sneakers (rubber-soled shoes for some Port Adventures)
    • Socks
    • PJs
    • Light Jacket
    • Extra swimsuit
    • Beach cover-up
    • Sunglasses
    • Dining attire

    Dinner attire is "cruise casual", meaning no swimwear, shorts or tank tops. If you plan to dine at Palo or Remy, the adult-exclusive restaurants, you'll need to make sure you follow their more formal dress codes.

    Make sure to bring your favorite pirate accessories for Pirate Night, a swashbuckling celebration on the high seas!

    I've seen several "Packing for a Disney Cruise" posts on Pinterest which list some fun extras you can bring along to make your cruise magical - you might want to check them out!

    I hope this helps with your packing and planning! - Diane W.
