I recently returned from a 7-night cruise around the Mediterranean onboard the MSC Meraviglia. We had 3 nights on land at the ends too. When I told you guys that I would be travelling with a cabin bag only I had a lot of requests to show you what I actually packed. It probably didn’t come as a surprise to you that I was doing this as I seem to have a bit of a track record as a light packer!

I’ve done it before, I managed to pack for a two week holiday in the same bag a few years ago. More about that here!

What did I pack?

MSC have formal nights which meant that a lot of my bag was made up of formal dresses. We also cruised Christmas so I had presents to pack and an alarm clock from Beurer to review (thanks, Beurer!). I also managed to pack:

  • 10 t-shirts
  • 2 skirts/Jeans/Shorts
  • 4 Jumpers (Sweaters)
  • + loads more

I don’t think I missed anything but please do let me know in the comments what you pack that I haven’t! I always look at other people with their huge suitcases and wonder whats inside…
