What to Pack For A Mediterranean Cruise

Want to know what to pack for a Mediterranean Cruise? Packing can sometimes be a little overwhelming, if you’re not sure what to pack… Between foreign ports, formal evenings, dinners and on-shore activities, you’ll want to make sure you are prepared without having to pack too much.

One of the things we love the most about cruising is that you only have to unpack your suitcase once. To make things a little easier, our team at Whitestar Cruise & Travel compiled some of our favourite tips to help you pack the perfect suitcase for your holiday at sea.

So let’s unpack, for you to pack…


  • Passports (the one that’s not expiring within 6 months and has at least 3 blank pages)
  • Driving license (if you’re planning on hiring a car on shore)
  • Travel documents
  • Travel insurance paperwork
  • Medication (don’t forget a copy of the script or doctor’s note just in case)
  • Spending money
  • First aid kit (painkillers, allergy relief, plasters, etc.)


  • Sunglasses
  • Cap or sunhat
  • Backpack or tote bag
  • Umbrella (cause you never know when it may drizzle)
  • Camera (to capture all the memories your are creating)


  • Your day-to-day essentials (Deodorant, lotion, shampoo & conditioner, etc.)
  • Insect repellent
  • Sunscreen (SPF)
  • After sun
  • Lip balm (with an SPF)


  • Device chargers
  • Zip-Lock bags – (for your toiletries while in transit in case they leak)
  • Casual clothes
  • Comfortable walking shoes
  • Swimsuit and swim cover-ups
  • Sweater or light jacket (for when it gets a little chilly)
  • A scarf, sarong or pashmina (for a bit of warmth and to cover your shoulders if you are visiting ancient sites & churches)
  • Evening attire & shoes

Top tip: When you’re packing, keep it light by picking pieces that can mix and match easily.

We hope that our guideline helps you with your packing… have a fantastic trip! #bonvoyage
