|What to Pack |
|Days onboard are casual and you'll be most comfortable in sport clothes and resort wear. Shoes should be low-heeled for deck activities. Bring a few swimsuits so you'll always have a dry one. You don't have to bring towels, as they are provided. And don't forget your camera and binoculars, so you don't miss a thing. |
For evening wear, count on three basic types of attire:
|Casual: Dresses or slacks and blouses for women, sport shirts and trousers for men.|
|Smart Casual: Dresses or pantsuits for women, jackets for men.|
|Formal: Cocktail dresses for women, suits and ties or tuxedos for men (you can arrange to rent a tuxedo onboard).|
Ashore, you'll need comfortable walking shoes as well as a hat and sunscreen for protection from the sun.
