You don’t have to pack enough clothes for your entire sailing, especially if it’s a long one. Instead, pack half as much as you need — and do laundry on your cruise ship halfway through. You can do it yourself on many ships in their laundromats or, if your precious vacation time is more important to you than money, you can send your laundry out and have the staff do it for you.
