You’ve planned your next holiday on a cruise to the Caribbean or Bermuda. You are super-excited about this holiday as it will act as your second honeymoon with your beloved spouse. While you are all pepped and jazzed up and can’t wait to hit the cruise, you are baffled about the dresses you need to pack for this vacation at the same time, especially if you are a novice cruiser. Do not make a mistake of stuffing your bags with loads of formal attire as a cruise holiday is meant for relaxing around and spending a leisure time. And you’ll only find fashionable and fun-loving people strolling and crossing you. So, sporting a dress that will make you stand out in the crowd is a big no. Though cruise ships initially adhered to particular dress codes with tuxedos, dark colored suits for men and long dresses for women, the scenario has changed over time. Find out what dresses you can drag out from your closet while going on a cruise trip, thereby revealing your individuality and making a unique style statement. Scroll on.
Dress To Wear On A Cruise
First Things First
For females, short shorts are appropriate to sport at the pool deck or while working in the fitness center. You can extend the attire for a buffet lunch. But that’s it. Do not take them further from this point. Throw in comfy and attractive bathing suits in the bag but restrict them to the pool. Coming to males, pick up khakis and a navy sport coat, accompanied with a polo shirt, T-shirt, or even an Oxford. Carry it anywhere and anytime of the day you like, but not for dinner at a formal night.
Women can sport walking shorts, slacks, casual skirts, and sundresses while indulging in indoor activities. For outdoors, swimsuits and oh-so-casual shorts and T-shirts ensembles are your best bets. Men should pick shorts teamed with T-shirts and sports shirts. These can be worn while working out indoors as well as while hitting the pool.
If your cruise is offering you an opportunity to head off for a kayaking expedition or a snorkeling sail, make sure that you carry appropriate beachwear with you. Casuals are the best options. Choose tank tops, scruffy jeans, or any kind of athletic stuff will do. While moving towards the town, pick up something decent and nice, listed under ‘Daytime’, so you’ll be welcomed well in restaurants and shops.
Unless it is the most formal evening, you can escape with wearing anything resort casual or slightly more elegant resort chic. Ladies can reveal their individuality by sporting thick flowing cotton or silk dresses. You can also mix and match your pants with a stylish top. For guys, let all the ladies swoon over you by putting a tuxedo. But if you do not have one, find a cruise that rents tuxedos for formal nights. However, it is recommended that you pack a suit and tie.
Keep a hat to ward off the sun, but ensure that you pick up a well-fitted one else the fast-blowing winds will land your hat in some foreign land before you even realize it. To highlight your personality, choose a hat with flowers or beads instead of a plain one. Wearing light outfits all the time can give you a plain look. Get heavy by sporting bangles, necklaces, earrings, and scarves. Use the long necklaces to drape around your neck, slip on some thick bracelets, and put in beaded earrings. However, do not use all of them at the same time. And how can you forget to store a pair of sunglasses to keep the sun away? Pick up those with large glasses to get maximum coverage.
With these ideas on what to wear on a cruise, packing clothes will surely reduce your problem. Go ahead and have a lovely time cruising amidst beauty and luxury!
