  2. Your Top Tips for Cruise Ship Packing

    Booked your first ever cruise? We bet you're here because you have no idea what to wear!

     

    Fortunately, cruises are a lot more casual than they used to be. Whilst we'd still recommending one posh frock (Any excuse for a pretty new evening dress!), these days, you can most certainly get away with smart separates and summer dresses.

Here, we'd recommend bringing one gorgeous cocktail dresses, and one set of separates- think silk or satin palazzos teamed with a gorgeous top like a pretty pussy bow blouse, lace or jewel adorned shirt or smart blazer and vest look.

Alternatively, jumpsuits look equally as chic for the evening.
