Since there are a whole plethora of activities to do on a cruise ship, one set of clothes a day won’t do the trick. To take full advantage of the activities the cruise ship has to offer, plan accordingly.

You will want to make sure you pack the appropriate amount of casual clothing for the day time.  This will vary depending on the climate.  Jeans, shorts, shirts, a swimsuit, shoes and the other various essential such as socks and under garments.

You will need another set of clothing for the shore and beach excursions.  Items such as shorts, walking shoes, and appropriate swimwear are essential items to pack.

The last thing you will need to pack is evening attire.  Many cruise lines have a dress code to follow during evening meals.  Then there are the more formal activities that require a more sophisticated dress.  Again pack accordingly.
