Packing Hints

Cruise Packing Hints

Thank you for choosing to explore the incredible Kimberley Coast with The Great Escape Charter Company.

We recommend that you pack simply, lightly and into one soft luggage bag. Please ensure you clearly label all luggage in advance of your cruise. If you are embarking upon an extended holiday and have luggage in addition to your cruise baggage, the Guest Relations Coordinator will happily arrange storage for the duration of your cruise.

The dress standard aboard MV Great Escape is informal; we encourage a casual, relaxed atmosphere. There is no formal dress code of an evening and we suggest guests are barefoot when onboard the vessel. Sporty, light weight, cotton clothing is a good basis for your cruise wardrobe. Your stewardess can provide a complimentary laundry service if required and there is also an iron provided on board if you need one.

In tropical conditions, shorts and lightweight shirts are most comfortable but loose long sleeved shirts and long pants in a natural, lightweight fabric such as cotton offer protection against the sun. At times the weather can be humid so clothing made in a ‘breathable’ fabric is recommended. The average daily temperature is 28oC - 33oC.

In the months of July and August, the minimum temperatures can fall to between 12oC - 15oC so you a light jumper might be useful for an early morning excursions.

All towels and linen are supplied onboard as well as hairdryers, soap, shampoo & conditioner.

We provide SPF 30+ sunscreen onboard along with insect repellent, however if you have any known allergies/sensitivities you may like to bring your own.

MV Great Escape has a fully equipped Royal Flying Doctor kit onboard for use in the unlikely event of an emergency. The following lists are designed to help you prepare for your adventure:
