Additional Thoughts for Packing

All clothing must be modest, please.

Please remember we will be traveling frequently. Bring essential items only as you will often be carrying them with you for long periods of time.

Due to limited space we highly recommend a backpack (no larger than 5,000 cubic inches), or a collapsible duffel bag.

*Note for Outreach: Due to fire danger no hair dryers, flat irons, or curling irons are permitted on ships. Sorry boys. **Even with converters these items usually fail and are a shock/fire hazard.
