Cruising over the Aegean Sea is one of the most beautiful activities you could possibly indulge in during your summer vacation. However, if you’ve never been on a boat trip, you might need to inform yourself about what to bring on a cruise. What are the items you can’t leave the port without? Before you call your Mykonos concierge and book a tour, ensure you are prepared well and have all these necessities in your carry-on.

Start by Preparing a List of All the Essentials You Have to Pack

When packing for a summer vacation on Mykonos or any other occasion, staying organized is one of the most important things. If you want to make sure that you are heading to your yacht tour as prepared as you can be, make sure you create a list of all the things you have to have by your side.

If you’re worried you might forget something, this list will help you stay more organized and avoid forgetting some really important items.

Pack Some Comfortable Clothing Pieces and Cover-Ups

Whether you are planning on taking a one-day tour or perhaps staying on a private yacht for a couple of days – make sure you have appropriate clothing. You should generally choose to pack some typical summer outfits, which are convenient and perfect for relaxing on the sunbeds.

Make sure you have a light jacket or a sweater you like as well, in case it gets a bit windy on the boat or chilly in the evening hours. Bikinis are a must, because you will surely want to take a swim in the middle of the crystal clear sea, and enjoy the gorgeous beaches of nearby islands.

Pack Some Accessories for the Cruise as Well

How can you possibly plan a summer outfit without some summer accessories like hats and sunglasses? These accessories are not only great for upgrading your fabulous looks, but they will also protect you from the sun. A useful tip we have in store is to choose a hat with a strap, so you can tie it. It can be pretty windy on a boat, and you wouldn’t want to lose your precious hat.

Bring Some Typical Travel Toiletries and Cosmetics You Like

A bag with basic toiletries is definitely one of the things you should consider packing with you for a boat trip. Although most of these luxurious private boats are equipped with anything you may need, they might not have your favorite makeup products and toiletries you use every day.

Some of these things can be pretty useful, especially if you are on a family holiday and have smaller kids with you on the trip. Make sure the bottles you use for your toiletries are plastic and can be closed well so they don’t break or open and spill if you drop them. Some of the items you should definitely consider packing in your toiletry bag are:

  • Wet wipes,
  • Tissues,
  • Hand sanitizer,
  • Body lotion,
  • Shower gel,
  • Dry shampoo,
  • Toothbrush and toothpaste,
  • Makeup products,
  • Some hand towels,
  • Deodorant.

You Should Have a Lot of SPF Products in Your Travel Bag

A product that will be your best companion on the trip is no one other than SPF sunscreen. Sunscreen is a product that will keep your skin safe and protected from the harsh sun while you are relaxing on the deck. Make sure you carry a few bottles of sunscreen for the body and face and don’t forget to reapply it every two hours. The same goes for sunbathing by the private pool of your Mykonos villa or at the beach.

What to Bring on a Cruise for Entertainment? There Are Lots of Items to Choose From

Although fantastic sunset cruises around the Cycladic archipelago are already fun enough – you might want to bring something for entertainment, just in case. Most luxurious private yachts come with Wi-Fi and TV, but you might still need more things to fill your time with endless fun.

If you like water sports, consider packing some of the equipment for snorkeling or perhaps scuba diving. If you are not an adventurous person, consider bringing some board games or cards for playing with your companions on the deck or anything else you would normally bring to the beach.

Tips on Packing Electronics for the Boat Cruise

If you are one of those people who can not go without their electronic devices for longer than a few hours – you will surely need to pack them properly for this cruise. However, there are some tips you should take into consideration when it comes to packing electronic devices for this kind of trip. First of all, ensure that you use protective cases for all of your devices since they could easily get in touch with too much water.

Get a waterproof phone pouch if you plan on taking some underwater shots. After all, that is the ultimate Instagram spot. Another important thing you shouldn’t forget is chargers for each device, and that also includes packing an outlet adapter for travel. You never know what kind of outlet space you might get on the ship, so make sure you pack an adapter.
