It’s been almost 10 years since I last went on a cruise, and this week Neal and I are departing for our first one together! Excited to share which ports we’ll be stopping at in posts to come (follow me on Instagram @stephsterjovski & #ssworldtravels). I love the idea of being able to effortlessly travel to different places without having to pack and unpack, and go from airport to airport. It’ll be nice to cruise on the ocean and get a little taste of everything, while having everything in one place. This is especially helpful for us because we do travel with quite a bit of baggage from camera equipment, to clothes for shooting, beauty, hair and shoes! I don’t know how we mange to do it with one check luggage and one carry-on, but we have mastered the art of traveling as bloggers over the years (haha). It’s important to pack smart for site-seeing, dinners, pool and beach time, so I’ve compiled a packing check-list. A lot of these pieces are versatile and can be styled in different ways to make them new each time…


I find dresses to be the most comfortable for me! You can dress these up or down!

I like to pack neutral tops that can go with different outfits and looks!
