bubb2 Every time i have taken a boat to the Islands, I pack $50 worth of T shirts. The kind you can get from the street venders here in New York for 4 or 5 for $10 sometimes 6 for $10. Giving a T shirt as a gift can buy you 100X's more good will with the locals then the $2 it cost you. Think fuel docks, taxi drivers, etc.

Always pack your passport and cruise documents in your carry on bag ONLY.

The dress on ship is casual all day until 6:00PM, so take:
-swim wear (at least 2),
-shorts, tank tops and "T's"
-beach shoes,
-your snorkel equipment if you have it,
-sun glasses and sun screen,
-a cap or big hat for the sun,
-a book if you are a reader,
-your music player,
-sneakers and clothes to workout in if you like to use the gym,
-good walking shoes,
-your camera, and
-other personal toiletries including tooth paste, mouth wash or lotions.

Uhh, We're not talking about a cruise ship. We're talking about a cruising sailboat here.

sailingdog Safety equipment should include the following:

Fire Extinguishers
A really good Anchor and rode
Rigging knives
Handheld VHF

Tools.... look at the post I wrote on a Cruising Sailboat's tool kit, located The Cruising Sailor's Toolkit | Adrift at Sea.

The daily living supplies varies too much, depending on personal habit, preference, number of people, hobbies, etc.
