When packing, keep in mind that storage space is limited. Please keep in mind many of the items on the following list are suggestions. There are standard electrical outlets on board for your chargers, laptops, e-readers, and music players. There are also connections for you music players. We suggest bringing a standard 1/8 in. audio cable as well to connect your player. We request that you avoid bringing items such as hair dryers or irons as they will not be needed.
