What to Wear While Cruising

What to Wear While Cruising

If you follow me on social media, you may have spotted that I recently went on an incredible ultra luxury cruise with Silversea Cruises. I’ve yet to publish my post about the experience – but in a nutshell, it was AMAZING. More on that to come.

This was my first ever cruise, so it was a really unique experience for me. I was very unsure what to expect, and one of the things that really had me in a pickle before we left was what to take with me. I mean, what should you wear on a cruise? I was in a panic.

Thankfully, I had luxury lifestyle vlogger xameliax with me on the cruise. She’s a lot more stylish than me and had some great tips. What I could have really done with, though, was the handy Cruise Packing Guide below! If you’re stuck for ideas about how to pack for a cruise, this should help.

A Few Quick Tips

My Life in June

My top tip? Check your ship’s itinerary to see the number of formal, informal, and casual nights on your trip. They’ll often send you a dress-code in advance, too. Here’s a quick breakdown if you’re not sure, though.

In cruise terms, casual actually means “smart casual”, while informal means the kind of dress you’d wear to a fancy restaurant. I pretty much went for a simple shift dress and heels every night – you can’t go wrong really. On formal night, think wedding or ball –  so gowns and cocktail dresses. The guide below has some really great tips for each night.

During the day go for comfortable but again smart-casual outfits. Linen shorts and smart, loose tops are always a winner. And you can never go wrong with a big, floppy hat.
