Cruise Clothes

I have perfected my cruise wardrobe down to some very favorite items that I tend to pack on every cruise. This includes a pair of sandals my husband wants me to throw out but they are comfy and perfect on a slippery deck. I have a knee length cardigan with pockets that is my airplane go to and breezy deck garb.

No more high heels - they've gone cruising but never worn too many times ...

What favorite items do you pack for every cruise?

Being a guy......Jeans, t-shirts, polo shirt, shorts and gym shoes and I'm good for a week. Oh and can not forget undies and socks. Life is simple.

I stick with plain, neutral colours for capris, and shorts so multi-coloured tops can be worn with any bottom. I only pack 1 dress for the 2 dressier evenings.

I bought a pair of thin light weight gym shoes to take on cruises. I always take at least one pair of jeans and a couple pairs of slacks.

Cuddle-duds - long sleeved top & leggings, material is like UnderArmour. DH likes the AC, so they're perfect for lounging around the cabin or sitting on the deck at night without getting too chilly.

Footies - I'd prefer to walk around the cabin barefooted; but who knows what's in that carpet...

A LBJ (little black dress) - However, the cleaners must have used some sort of new process and shrunk my dress because I put it on last cruise and that thing was tight! Surprised LOL

Loved Cuddle-duds when I lived up north - they are also perfect for an Alaskan cruise!
