So cruise wise, it depends on the company. Check your booking as it should say how many different nights there will be. There is usually 3 different evening dress codes:
  • Casual/Informal - this tends to be t shirts and jeans type dressing for adults
  • Semi-Formal - this is more like you'd wear for a nice meal in the UK
  • Formal/Dress up night - this is a chance to wear something fancy and push the boat on. On some cruise lines this is formal gowns and tux's. On others (including Disney) its a mix of different levels from nice evening dresses and suits to the full ball gown and tux.

During the day clothing will depend on where the cruise is to and the weather. You will need comfortable shoes for walking in the ports and t-shirts and shorts probably unless its a cold cruise in which case you will need layers. For days on the ship you will need swimwear and similar over clothing probably.

I tend to take too many clothes in all honesty but remember most cruise ships do have laundry if you need it - I tend to plan to do one load if going for more than 7 days.

I would also say make sure you take a cardigan for the evenings as on every cruise I've been on the restaurants and venues at night have air con on and it can be a little chilly.
