9 Packing Tips
#1 Roll, don't fold. Experts agree that rolling takes less space and your clothes will be less wrinkled.
#2 Create a packing list - packing the night before usually means more clothes. A list will help you reduce your weight.
#3 Know your airline's free-bag policy - Transocean flights usually allow 1 free checked bag + a free carry on. Flights within North America charge you for all checked bags. Know your airline's policy!
#4 Liquids brought onto planes must be in 100ml bottles or smaller and inside a single, clear, zip-lock bag. Peanut butter, pudding, mashed potatoes, and icing are classified as gels!
#5) Use your personal item wisely. Airlines usually allow 1 free personal item in addition to your carry-on bag. Don't waste yours on a tiny purse. Bring a tote bag or back pack that stashes under the seat but offers extra storage space.
#6 Washing your clothes on the road can mean taking fewer clothes but you have to know about available laundry machines. Some ships offer self-serve laundry, some don't - ask us about yours.
#7 Layer - wear plenty of layers to help you transit multiple climates in comfort. Second, pack your bag in layers too. According to the TSA airport security, "Pack shoes one layer, clothes one layer, electronics one layer," so that the security agent can get a clear picture of what's inside. The faster they screen, the faster you'll get through the security line.
#8 Never check essential items - keep your valuable and essential belongings in your carry-on bag, not in your checked luggage. Your passport, ID, money, credit cards, jewelry, electronics, medications should always be carried with you.
#9 Share your bag - Pack 1/2 your clothing in your companion's bag and pack 1/2 of theirs in your bag. Lost bags can happen, but two lost bags is extremely rare. Worst case, you'll have 1/2 your clothes while you await the arrival of your bag!
