Garment bag
Do most cruisers carry on the garment bag or check it with luggage?

It depends on what you are referring to as a garment bag.

I always carry a garment bag that holds my suit and/or tuxedo, my wife's dresses and dress shirts and pants. This item I always check.

If it is just the vinyl type of garment bag that holds a single dress or suit, with the hanger sticking out, I would carry it.

Take care,

Thank you, that helps. The closer the cruise gets the more I worry about the goofy stuff!

most standard garment bags are to large to fit thru the scanners to carry them on. We check ours at the pier.

This is a garment cover:
