Amazon Prime Day is among us - and there are some incredible deals to snag for your upcoming cruises and travels! 

Prime Day deals for cruise accessories

Forget Black Friday because Amazon Prime Day is one of the biggest online shopping days of the year. In fact, the company stated that this year’s Prime Day is bigger than ever before. Thousands of items will receive substantial price slashes - some up to 80% off! 

Everything from 3-piece luggage sets to packing cubes and AirTags will be on sale. You will find some of our favorite must-have products that are on steep discount during the highly-anticipated Prime Day sale on Amazon. 

Of course, with thousands of items on sale this year for Prime Day, you might be overwhelmed trying to find the best deals. I was even a little overwhelmed while compiling this list! Lucky for you, we’ve researched all of the best cruise items on Amazon that you’ll find on sale this year during the Prime Day event. 

Prime Day begins today, July 11, and will continue for 48 hours through July 12. The sale is quick, so make sure to purchase those items you're eyeing before they sell out. As you can guess, Amazon Prime members receive the best discounts, but anyone can access deals for Prime Day, even without a membership. You can also elect a 30-day free trial for Amazon Prime if you want exclusive access to the best deals this year. 

Here are the best Amazon Prime Day deals for your upcoming cruise vacation that we found. As a note, we receive a small commission when you purchase any items during Prime Day from the links below. This costs you absolutely nothing extra, but the small commission helps support our site. 

Luggage Deals 

Whether you plan to fly to your next cruise or you live close enough to drive, you will definitely need luggage to bring onboard. Investing in solid luggage has been a lifesaver for me, as I have been cruising more frequently. Amazon Prime Day has a slew of luggage with incredible deals on luggage sets and suitcases. Take a look below at some of the best luggage deals we found. 

One of the top luggage deals is this Samsonite Carry-On. This one is a 20-inch, hard side spinner available for 44% off. We’ve taken many cruises with just a carry-on, so having a solid suitcase for cruising is a must!

  • Price: $89 (Originally $159.99)

It’s also a great time to buy luggage sets so you can have matching pieces. This is a top rated, 3-piece luggage set from Coolife. Brighter sets will be easier to spot at the baggage claim as well, which are available for the sale too! As a bonus, these have TSA built-in locks so you can ensure your belongings are safe at the airport and cruise terminal.

If you’re someone who loves to souvenir shop during your cruise, it’s not a bad idea to pack an expandable duffle bag to ensure you can get all of your new treasures home. This is especially important if you are someone who struggles to leave room in your packed suitcase for souvenirs. In fact, I've started to always pack an expandable duffle because I don't want to feel limited on cruises when it comes to shopping.

Packing Cubes

Packing cubes have been all the rage for a while, but I didn’t start using them until last year. Now, I haven’t looked back. Not only can you stay more organized with your cruise packing, but you can usually squeeze more into your suitcase. Once you arrive to your cruise cabin, you can simply place your cubes in the drawers and shelves - unbelievably easy!

Packing Cubes

I’ve also invested in compression packing cubes, which save a ton of space in my carry-on. Here are some of the best packing cubes for Amazon Prime Day.
