With the excitement of an upcoming cruise, vacationers are busy selecting their port excursions and shopping for swimsuits and beach clothing. Surprise a friend going on a cruise with a useful gift that they will not only enjoy but also find useful on their exciting trip to somewhere warm and tropical. Whether you are looking for a gift for a first-time cruiser or a veteran cruiser, below are some of the best gifts for cruise travlers.
For the cruiser who plans on scuba diving during one of their excursion activities, the SealBuddy FIJI Panoramic Snorkel set + Premium Travel Gear Bag provides a full panoramic view of the marine life. Compared to traditional scuba gear, this set will allow a diver to see far more sea life than ever before. The unique top ball snorkel design is bendable and fully submersible, keeping air sealed and water out.
With a one-way sealed valve, divers do not need to worry about air escaping from their mouthpiece while they enjoy the fish and other sea life. The active and adventurous cruiser will love the streamlined fins that allow flexible movement while swimming with minimal thrusting. The panoramic snorkel mask also comes with a travel gear bag with an extra zipper pouch for personal items. The mesh bag dries and ventilates quickly, so divers can return to other port or ship activities after a snorkeling session. This top notch panoramic snorkel set will please any traveler from the first time divers to the more experienced divers.
Travelers will be grateful to have the AKASO EK7000 4K WIFI Sports Action Camera and Waterproof DV Camcorder in order to capture all of the memories from their cruise. With 12MP at up to 30 frames per second, this top notch camera will take perfect photos of any cruise activity from a day at the pool to an underwater excursion. Cruisers will have plenty of memories in high-quality photos to remember their travels and excursions.
The waterproof camcorder can withstand extreme environments up to 100 feet below the ocean’s surface, so it can be used during scuba diving or even water sports on the surface of the ocean. The camera has four times the resolution of a traditional camera and with its built in WIFI and HDMI capabilities, cruisers can edit and share photos on the go using their laptop or mobile device. The camera also comes with a wireless wrist remote control for the convenience of framing and shooting while in motion. This is an ideal gift for anyone who wants to remember the memories made on their trip, no matter their plans for the cruise.
For the female cruiser that is looking for an equally trendy and convenient accessory, the Scout Original Deano handbag will be the perfect gift. With 27 vibrant colors to choose from, the bag is the ideal addition to any pool or beach day. For a cruiser who wants to make a fashion statement, the fun colors will match most summer outfits and make the bag easy to spot on the deck. The 19 by 15 by 10 dimensions provide enough space to fit anything someone might need such as a towel and swimsuit or a book for a relaxing day by the water.
The bag also comes with an interior key ring to hold keys so that your friend is never scavenging at the bottom of a bag for her keys. Made out of lightweight polywoven fabric, the bag is easy to clean, but also features a leather bottom and handles to ensure maximum stability and durability. Although lightweight, the fabric is sturdy so that the bag maintains its shape without anything in it. It’s also water-resistant, making it perfect for an afternoon on the pool deck. Stylish and useful, this bag is ideal for any friend.
The High Sierra Loop Backpack is perfect for a wide variety of activities from an intense day of hiking to a casual stroll in the port town. The flexible backpack has multiple compartments for tablets, phones, or other digital gear and a total of four interior and six exterior pockets. It’s large enough to fit a sleeping bag or a tent, but for the more casual cruiser, it can fit towels or other gear for a fun day of excursions. All of this gear can be strapped down with adjustable compression straps and a monster gear can attach heavier items like a full water bottle.
The Suspension System straps transfer weight and lessen its shock, providing shoulder relief from all of the extra weight that comes with carrying so many items. However, the backpack is more than just high functionality and versatility. With 30 unique colors and patterns to choose from, the backpack will also fit the unique style of any individual. Give the gift of the High Sierra Loop Backpack to any friend, no matter their style or choice of port of call excursions.
The ideal parting gift for any cruiser is the Golden State Fruit Pacific Coast Classic Dried Fruit Tray Gift, which contains delicious nuts and dried fruit. Cruisers can snack on the dried fruit and nuts during a long check-in line or while relaxing in their cabin. With zero added sugar, the gift also offers a healthy option to enjoy in contrast to all the buffets of food that the cruiser will encounter on the ship.
The assorted mix includes roasted salted almonds and pistachios, dates, prunes, and dried apricots, peaches, pears, plums and apples, offering a perfect combination of salty and sweet. The gift comes in an approximately 9 by 9-inch box that will fit in most suitcases or carry-on bags and it only weighs one pound and 10 ounces. The Dried Fruit Tray Gift is the perfect option for a parting gift for anyone who likes food or is looking for a healthy snack for the trip.
Whether your friend is traveling to the Bahamas or to Alaska, the gifts on this list will suit any type of traveler. Whether it is their first or their tenth trip, cruise preparations can be daunting. Make the trip a little easier and more enjoyable for your friend by choosing one of these functional gifts. Choose from a highly versatile backpack, a poolside handbag, or a delicious box of nuts and dried fruit to surprise your friend before they leave for their big trip. They will be even more prepared and excited for the cruise that awaits them no matter their destination.
