Before you pack for your luxury sailing holiday on-board the Glaros. Take the time to find out what you need and what you don’t.
A holiday abroad the Glaros is a unique and exciting experience, but, there aren’t any supermarkets on the open seas, so things that are left behind – stay behind. So, to make sure you have the best time possible.
What You Will Need On A luxury Sailing Holiday
The team at Deep Blue Yachting have come up with a list of essentials. For you to put in your bags:
What Clothes Should I Pack for the Mediterranean?
The Glaros features numerous locations for storing clothes. So don’t feel like you need to pack too light. Having said that, the smaller your bag the less hassle you’ll go through on the journey over. So it’s best to take what you need and not much else. Obviously, you’ll need warm weather clothes, providing you are visiting in the summer months. However, while in calm areas or in protected bays it is very comfortable aboard the Glaros. When out on open waters with the wind on our heels, it can get a bit nippy. It is best then to bring at least one or two sets of warm clothing. To stave off the wind on our journeys between islands.
With that in mind though, that is only if you spend time outside the cabin. Inside the cabin will be kept at comfortable temperatures at all times. So don’t worry if you want to keep away from the cold. We also recommend sun glasses, hats and sandals. All of which will come in handy for excursions to beaches and other sun-kissed areas of Greece. With so many great water environments to explore. We also suggest you bring an extra days worth of clothes in-case you get caught off-guard by the Med.
I would also like to add that, for safety reasons. We do not recommend high-heels when aboard the ship. Instead we like you to wear flat sole shoes at all times. By all means, bring heels for trips to the shore. But please ensure you have something suitable for walking about the boat.
Personal items for a luxury sailing holiday
We have a fully outfitted luxurious bathrooms abroad the Glaros. Which will always be fully stocked with soap and toilet paper. However, other items such as shower and dental hygiene products must be bought with you. We also recommend you bring sun-tan and after sun. As the beautiful Mediterranean sun can pack an irresistible punch.
When it comes to electrical goods we have pretty much all the bases covered. Whilst we do have a vast array of films for you to unwind with at the end of the day. If you wish to bring laptops or tablets then you’ll be happy to know the Glaros sports fully functioning WiFi. The entire boat is also fitted with both European and English plug sockets. So there is no need to bring adapters. Although if you want to get away from the electronic world we live in. The Glaros can also be the perfect escape.
When coming aboard, a lot of space in your luggage is taken up by those extra things. Things that aren’t a necessity, but will improve your experience of the holiday. But, we’ve already thought of some of these things. So you know what to bring and what not bring we’ve come up with two lists:
What Not To Bring:
- Cooking Utensils, On the boat you will be fully catered for. No need to pack anything even remotely related to cooking
- Drinks, Soft drinks are included in the price. Fresh milk and bread are picked up daily along with anything else needed for the day.
- Alcoholic drinks, are not included in the charter fee. But why pack them when you can choose from an array of fine Greek classics?
- Snorkelling Gear. We have a whole host of high quality snorkel gear. So no need to waste space on that. Just don’t forget your trunks!
- Hiking boots. There are lots of great walking trails about Greece and you don’t want sore feet at the end of the day. So bring some sturdy footwear!
- A Camera. Be it a big digital SLR, a small disposable one, or a fancy underwater piece of kit. Be sure to bring it with you. You’ll be seeing some truly beautiful and inspiring sights.
- Mosquito Spray. We have repellents active in the cabin at night. But if out and about or relaxing on the deck then a spray will keep those pesky bugs away.
- A Holdall. Instead of suitcase, which is big and bulky and can take up lots of cabin space. Pack your luggage in a holdall if possible. It means once all your clothes have been stowed away in the draws and cupboards. The holdall can be also tucked away nicely.
