Smile Joining Breakaway crew on 1/31/16

Hi! I'll be boarding the Breakaway as an assistant cook in a couple of weeks.

I wanted to ask some basic questions regarding cabin space, and whether the luggage I intend taking with me is convenient or not. Also, I'm open to suggestions on what to bring onboard, what not to bring, etc.

Thanks!

Cabin will of course be small, so if your luggage can collapse that would be best. I use the Eagle Creek rolling duffel Eagle Creek No Matter What Flashpoint Rolling Duffel XL - eBags.com and it works very well.

Hi! Thanks for your answer. My luggage is collapsible, but has a rigid side where the handle for dragging it is. It is really similar to This: Lipault Paris Luggage Pliable 0% 75cm Large Upright Suitcase Foldable Bag Navy


Is there anything you can recommend me to take that no one told you? What's the thing you wish you would have taken with you but didn't on your first cruise?

Nothing in particular... just pack what you can fit and would need for say 2-3 weeks between launderings.

Don't over pack casual clothing. You will probably buy some t shirts etc along the way. Take plenty of underwear and pack a formal outfit.
