Essential Packing List: 10 Must-Haves for Your 7-Day Caribbean Cruise Adventure

I can’t wait for my first-ever cruise! We’ll be cruising for seven days, with stops in the Dominican Republic, Virgin Islands, and Puerto Rico. Going with my mom and sisters has made cruise talk non-stop, and they’ve already wrapped up most of their shopping. Me? I’ve barely started, but I’m aiming for a beachy vibe that’s both comfy and stylish.

My vacation wardrobe will be all about easy-breezy linen pants and dresses, versatile sandals perfect for both the cabana and beach strolls and swimwear that can double as tops for some extra mileage. I tend to overpack, but this time I managed to narrow it down to 10 essentials from brands like Madewell, J.Crew, Levi’s, Birkenstock, and Coach. And to keep everything organized, I’ve got my favorite Calpack packing cubes and a sturdy suitcase from Béis on the list as well.

White on a cruise being comfortable is a must, but still want to be in a trendy piece. So I had to pack flowy wide-leg pants, they offer style versatility, I could style it over my swimwear or choose to wear it with a casual top for a tropical look. It comes in small to extra-large and has 12 different colors to choose from, so I got four. What I also love about these are the lightweight and the drawstring.

Tank Tops

I packed 3 of these blouses because they are not only casual but they have a design a little more elevated than the basic tank tops. Althought I was wearing a swimsuit most of the trip these went well with my lining pants and denim shorts.

Arizona Big Buckle Slide Sandal

I was seeking a shoe that’s hassle-free and versatile, something I can easily slip on and off and dress up or down. These Birkenstock Arizona Big-Buckle Slide Sandals fit the bill perfectly. Available in black, beige, pink, and green, they come in sizes ranging from 5 to 11.5.

What sets these slides apart is their cork-latex footbed, which provides excellent shock absorption, arch support, and molds to your foot’s shape over time for a custom fit. Plus, they have two straps with an oversized, gold-plated buckle that adds a touch of elegance, making them suitable for more formal occasions.

Swimsuits Obvisouly

The dress is flowy so you can feel comfortable and when I overeat not have to feel self-conscious about looking bloated.
