What To Wear For A Cruise

Cruises are an exciting way to travel and explore new destinations. Whether you’re heading to the Caribbean, Mediterranean, or any other exotic region of the world, one of the things you may be wondering about is what to wear on a cruise. Take a closer look at some tips for dressing appropriately and stylishly for your cruise holiday.

Check the dress code

Before you start packing for your cruise, it’s important to check the dress code. Many cruise lines have different dress codes for different areas of the ship or for different events. For example, some cruise lines have formal nights where men are expected to wear a tuxedo or suit, and women are expected to wear a formal dress or gown. Other cruise lines have a more relaxed dress code, allowing guests to wear casual attire throughout their trip. Be sure to check with your cruise line for their specific dress code requirements.

Pack for the weather

When it comes to what to wear on a cruise, the weather is an important factor to consider. If you’re cruising to a tropical destination, you’ll want to pack lightweight clothing such as shorts, sundresses, and swimsuits. If you’re cruising to a cooler climate, you’ll want to pack warmer clothing such as jackets, sweaters, and trousers. Make sure to check the weather forecast for your destination before you pack so that you can bring appropriate clothing.

Bring comfortable shoes

Cruises involve a lot of walking, so it’s important to bring comfortable shoes. Trainers are a good choice for excursions and activities on the ship. Sandals or flip flops are great for the pool or beach areas. If you plan on dressing up for formal events, bring a pair of dress shoes that are comfortable to walk in.


Accessories can make a big difference in your cruise attire. Sunglasses, hats, and sunscreen are essential for sunny destinations. Scarves, wraps, and shawls can add warmth and style to your outfits in cooler climates. Jewellery, such as earrings or a necklace, can add a touch of elegance to your formal wear.

Pack smart

When it comes to what to wear on a cruise, it’s important to pack smart. Plan your outfits in advance and choose items that can be mixed and matched. Bring a few basic pieces such as a white shirt or a pair of black pants that can be dressed up or down. This will save space in your luggage and allow you to create different looks with fewer items.

What to wear on a cruise will depend on your destination, the dress code, and your personal style. Remember to pack for the weather, bring comfortable shoes and pack smart. By following these tips, you’ll be sure to look stylish and feel comfortable on your cruise. Bon voyage!
