Carnival Cruise packing list Pack-With-Me

Let’s talk about the ultimate Carnival cruise packing list

This week we talk about our upcoming Carnival cruise, and our thoughts on the best cruise packing list to support it. We’re cruising on Carnival Panorama from California to the ports of Cabo San Lucas, Mazatlan, and Puerto Vallarta, but this packing list works for ANY warm weather cruise. 

Today, we’re laying out our cruise packing list. Yep, that’s right, we’re going on a Carnival cruise to the Mexican Riviera, and we’re sharing all our tips and tricks. 

Well, we’re actually ON a cruise at the time of recording. If we passed our COVID tests! 

How this show is gonna go. 

  • First a little background.
  • What’s different from our last cruise.
  • Dive into the packing list.
  • You can also search “Carnival packing list” at cruisetipstv.com for a written version
  • Listener spotlight!

What’s different from our Caribbean packing video?

  • We’re taking soda- why? NO drink packages. 
  • Allowable champagne/prosecco too!
  • But those drinks are taking up almost an entire suitcase
  • I’m taking a large bag for my clothes- different luggage.
  • Packing for theme nights
  • Fun fact: we can’t check our luggage when we arrive because our son has to covid test in the terminal. Not sure how that will look?!
  • NO flight bag. Instead, our carry on is focused strictly on embarkation day essentials. 
  • Not going ashore- maybe at all. How does that change our packing? Not much really. 
  • Liquid IV has a new flavor- we packed lots of yellow cherry, energy and immunity blend. Discount Code: CRUISETIPSTV
  • Toiletry differences: Full size sunscreen, hallelujah!
  • Accessory differences: A few wall magnets. 
  • Taking a laptop? Why? LIVE trip reports at cruisetipstv.com
  • We become Platinum on this cruise, so we get laundry services.

  • Love the show!

    I stumbled across your show while I prepare for my 1st cruise in 12/2024. I’m going from Mobile, Al to Belize and Cozumel on a 7 day cruise. It’s w/Carnival. It will be with my husband and our 2 children. It’s my kids’ birthday who are turning 15 and 13. Their birthdays are just a few days apart. We decided to celebrate big this year! I’m so excited! I hope to become an avid cruiser. I travel a lot anyway. I love the idea of cruising already! I have planned 3 previous cruises but had to cancel because the the 1st and 2nd time I ended up pregnant and too far along & the 3rd time I got COVID. This is the 4th time and I’m not letting anything stop me! lol I love the show. I love how funny you guys are! All the info is great. Can you do an updated podcast of what to pack for an embarking bag? Can you please give me more info on what to expect on my 1st cruise? Thank you so much for all of your great advice, information, and funny comments! Keep it up!

  • BEST CRUISE PODCAST!!
    May 8, 2024 by Elainemast from United States

    I’ve been listening to CruiseTipsTV for several years and I’m finally leaving a review. It started watching their content, when we went on our very first cruise in 2017. I absolutely look forward to listening to their podcast and it just makes me happy! I love the banter between Mr. CruiseTipsTV and Sherri! They are always so positive but also realistic. They also give so many tips and advice! Currently, I am mowing our yard and have them in my ears and it’s just getting me excited for our next cruise! Keep up the wonderful content and podcast! Y’all are the best! Elaine
