Simple cruise luggage tip for a ‘much easier’ holiday | Cruise | Travel

Whether you’re heading straight to the port for your next cruise holiday or are travelling as part of a fly-and-sail package, choosing the right type of luggage can make a world of difference. Regardless of whether you are travelling with hand luggage only or are taking a larger suitcase with you packed full of essentials, transporting everything with ease is the key to starting your holiday on a stress-free note.

One simple way to ensure you get your luggage from A to B without breaking too much of a sweat is by opting for a bag with wheels. These days, you can get luggage of all sizes with two or even four wheels, so that you can glide through the airport or straight up to that cruise port without having to lug your bag about.

One seasoned cruiser, posting to a Reddit forum, said that they always make sure both their hand and hold luggage have wheels – and it’s made a world of difference. Posting under the username LogicPuzzler, the cruise passenger said: “My checked bag has spinner wheels and that’s so much easier to wheel around!”

Similarly, an expert from Lifewellcruised.com added: “If you’re going on a cruise, it’s so important to have easy-to-manoeuvre luggage – both for the airport and cruise terminal.”

Of course, there’s a decision to be made between hard and soft shell luggage, with travellers and experts arguing the case for both. Hard-shelled suitcases can be a little sturdier, while soft-shelled cases allow for squeezing just that big extra in and can protect your bag from cracking, in the event it ends up being thrown into the baggage hold of an aeroplane. Generally speaking, it’s a personal preference depending.

There are so many brands of luggage it can be hard to decide which is the best to opt for. As well as reading reviews from previous customers, the best bag for you will also likely coincide with your budget.

Decent suitcases can be an upfront investment, but certain brands are likely to last for many years to come, so it’s well worth considering spending.

Most cruise lines have a fairly lenient luggage allowance, especially when compared with airlines. However, if you are on a fly-and-sail package, you’ll need to take into account the luggage allowance set out by your airline.

For your cruise, the luggage allowance will depend on your cruise line. Most cruises allow two bags per person, weighing no more than 50 lbs. Before you head on your cruise it’s well worth visiting the website of your cruise line and reading their specific luggage requirements.
