Guest Blog: What to pack for a cruise, our top tips!

So you’re going on a cruise?

If I mention the word ‘packing’ some of you will instinctively know what to take and others will shake in their boots at the mere thought of it!  if you are joining the cruise from Southampton and disembarking back at the same place you’ve no worries about how much luggage you can take as there will be no restrictions.  Not so if you’ve decided to fly to a destination before joining your cruise!  The airline will almost certainly decide how much or how little you can pack.  That can be something of a predicament if you’ve got several formal, casual, smart nights as well as daywear to take care of!

It’s all in the layers!

The secret to stress-free packing experience is to make sure that everything you take can be worn as many ways as possible.  This includes layering with other items so that you can deal with different climates and temperatures along the way.  Shoes tend to be the heaviest item that you take so make sure that you can wear them on several occasions with the help of a few added accessories. I’ll cover more on that subject another time.

They’re not just for Granny

Warmth is a crucial consideration, especially on a cruise through many different temperature zones.  Unless you know you are going to be in a warm climate all the time, please pack a thermal vest or two and leggings.  They don’t have to look like something your granny would wear; there are lots of really pretty options available!  It’s amazing how much warmth you can get from thermal wear and of course, it weighs very little.

I always take a pair of 100 denier tights with me, they look great with a skirt or dress and a classic pair of shoes BUT, they are so so warm under trousers and they don’t add bulk around your middle.  In fact, they actually pull you in and make you look slimmer! As temperatures warm up you just roll them in a ball and put them at the back of the drawer.  A skirt or dress still looks good with bare legs! All of the above can be rinsed out in the sink in the cabin, weigh very little and dry in next to no time, preferably hanging up in the shower.

Next on the list of ‘heaviest’ items to pack are jeans.  Trouble is they are a staple item as far as most of us are concerned.   If you MUST take jeans don’t take your ‘jean’ coloured blue pair, they look like jeans!  Choose a dark blue or black pair or even a more colourful pair.  Try to avoid jeans with lots of sparkle on them, this limits where you can wear them.  Pick the right pair and you can wear them in the day with a T-shirt and flat shoes and then on another occasion add a pair of heels and a jazzy top, perfect for a casual evening on board.  Add an evening jacket and you might just get away with it on a smart evening.  Try it with your evening shoes and sparkly bag to really up the game!

Keep it simple

My last tip for this blog is to stick to four colours and those four c0lours should compliment each other.  If you choose the right colours, all your outfits will go with each other.  Please don’t take a pair of trousers that only go with one top! The rule is that for every bottom (skirt, trousers, jeans, shorts) you should have at least 3 tops.

I’ll post more ideas and updates on stress-free cruising so keep watching and don’t forget to check out the great cruise offers from Bellissimo Travel and make sure you visit www.cruisewearboutique for lots of ideas and come see us at the boutique on www.cream-rose.co.uk.

  39. The road seemed to stretch on endlessly before us, but Alexis assured me that our journey was near an end. We’d turn before long into thick woods and travel through narrow, winding roads until we reached her family’s cabin. I had no choice but to trust her as GPS had given out nearly 20 minutes ago.

    “There’s good wifi and okay reception at the cabin,” she’d told me, “but you can’t get there unless you know the way.”

    So here I was, driving alone in the middle of god knows where with a girl who was my student just a couple of weeks ago. Her and her four best friends had been together from first grade all the way through high school and now they had graduated with very different futures ahead of them. They had decided to kick off “the best summer ever” with a week long stay at Alexis’s family cabin. Alexis and I were heading up before everyone else, the four other girls and four guys.
