Disney Mediterranean Cruise Packing List

Disney Mediterranean Cruise Packing List

Take a cruise to different countries in the Mediterranean means you will need to have several things.

We’ve taken 2 Mediterranean cruises and have come up with a list of must-have items:

1. Copy of Your Documents

You will want to make sure that you not only bring the following items, but also have copies of them with you just in case: Passport, Drivers License, and Credit Cards

Make sure you know the PIN for your credit card in case you need to withdraw cash.

Travel Document Holder
Are you looking for a smart way of storing your documents while traveling abroad? Then you will love this Boacay Portable Organizer! It is practical and easy to fit in any bag, backpack, or suitcase.

We have found that a document holder helps keep all your cruise documents organized and easy to access during a trip.


You will want a backpack that is lightweight, but sturdy.

This will be your day bag on excursions.

Choose one that has plenty of pockets, adjustable padded straps and able to hold a water bottle.

Sunhiker Travel Backpack
The sunhiker backpack is a small-sized backpack with dimensions of 15.8H x 9.4L x 5.9W inches/40 x 24 x 15 cm, a weight of 12.3 oz, and a capacity of approximately 20-25L. It is suitable for both men and women who prefer a smaller sized backpack and only want to carry essential items while traveling light.

Mix & Match Clothing

Pick outfits that can be worn in several different ways to achieve different looks.

Be sure to pack a Casual Maxi-style Dress for women/girls & Khaki Pants for men/boys that can be worn on the ship for a casual dinner or on an excursion.

Bring a Shrug Sweater &/or Scarf. Many churches will not permit you to walk in with exposed shoulders & arms (and sometimes legs).

Having a scarf that can be draped over your shoulders or a lightweight shrug should help you avoid having trouble going into sacred areas.

Try to stick to 1 pair of walking shoes, 1 pair of sandals/flip-flops, and 1 pair of dress shoes.

Hat, Sunglasses & Sun Screen

Let’s face it, the last thing you want on your vacation is a sunburn.

Make sure that you pack a small travel-size sunscreen, hat and more than one pair of sunglasses (in case you lose them or break them).

Coppertone SPORT Sunscreen SPF 50 Lotion, Water Resistant , Body Sunscreen Lotion, Travel Size , 3 Fl Oz
Water Resistant: Coppertone Sport SPF 50 sunscreen lotion is water resistant (80 minutes), and stays on strong when you sweat

Money Belt

Not to scare you, but pick-pockets are rampant overseas.

RFID Blocking Travel Wallet – Money Belt & Passport Holder
Supper slim Money belt with Two zippered compartments, three perfect-fit individual pockets, secure solution to keep your personal ID, credit cards, passports, money, smart phones and other valuables safely hidden under clothes.

Be safe and carry a Money Belt that can be hidden under your shirt.

Guide Book

While you may choose pre-booked excursion, there will be times where you might want to venture out on your own.

It would be helpful for you to have a guidebook with useful information.

This is the book I use: Rick Steves’ Mediterranean Cruise Ports.

Cloth Napkins

Most public European bathrooms will have toilet paper and a sink.

What you probably will not find is soap or a way of drying your hands.

Swedish Dish Cloth
Swedish dish cloths is made of 70% cellulose and 30% cotton. The material is soft, skin-friendly. It has highly absorbent and is easy to air-dry after getting wet.

A Swedish Dish Cloth does the trick. They are easy to pack and dry fast once wet.

Hand Sanitizer

See above.


Pocket Change in Euros

Often we think to get paper bills, but don’t always think to get coins. Many bathrooms in Europe are NOT free.

You will be required to pay with coins.

Make sure you have plenty of coins so you aren’t scrambling when you have to go.

Carrying coins can be a hassle, so make sure you purchase a coin purse to be able to hold them easily.

Coin Purse
Made of High Quality Canvas with Polyester lining. Clasp kiss-lock closure.

Blister Band-Aids

You will be walking A LOT.

Even if you do have the most comfortable walking shoes in the world, the last thing you want -to do is have to search for band-aids on your vacation in Europe!

Band-Aid Brand Hydro Seal Adhesive Bandages
The hydrocolloid first aid bandage is suitable for many wound types & ideal for use on your heels for blister protection & cushioning. The gel bandages stay on for up to 7 days, even through showers

We always pack Blister Band-Aids.

Laundry Detergent/ Tide Pen

You might want to do a load of laundry, so why not bring a travel size with you.

Tide Stain Remover Pen
Portable, pen-like design to stop stains on the spot – fits neatly into your travel bag or suitcase.

In any event, bring a Tide pen or some Shout Wipes too.

French Riviera Rocky Beaches

Swimwear & Water Shoes

Some beaches are topless, so be sure you know before you go.

Many beaches are rocky, so water shoes will really help keep your feet from being torn up.

Quick-Dry Swim Shoes
Quick-dry water shoes, smooth neck design of aqua socks prevents chafing when wearing our water shoes.


Jetlag can put a hamper on your vacation. If you have a hard time getting to sleep, you might want to try Melatonin.

Take it a few hours before you’re ready to sleep and it allows your body to rest naturally.

Captain Mickey Mouse

Packing efficiently is important! We hope that this list gives you some ideas for things you might not have otherwise thought about when packing for a Mediterranean cruise.
