Most first time charterers pack way too much stuff.  Life on board is simple and casual, and you really don’t need loads of clothes and accessories. When packing, put all of the clothes and accessories you have chosen out on your bed, then put half of them back. Always use soft bags for your luggage as on board there is no spare space for big hard suitcases.
