Royal Caribbean Cruise Line recommends passengers pack a small carry-on bag with travel documents, any needed medications, a change of clothes, swimsuit, sunscreen, workout gear and camera. That way guests don't have to wait for their checked bags to arrive before starting to enjoy the ship. Depending on the length of the cruise, passengers need various assortments of casual, smart casual and formal wear. Certain activities, such as ice skating or tennis, call for appropriate clothing and footwear.Continue Reading
Examples of casual attire include shorts, T-shirts, skirts, blouses and sundresses. A swimsuit cover-up is necessary when going to and from the pool area, as are casual sandals or flip-flops. An extra swimsuit comes in handy in case one suit is wet. Smart casual attire is defined as jackets and ties for men and dresses or pantsuits for women.
Royal Caribbean has a handy online chart passengers may use to figure out how many and what type of outfits to pack for dinner in the main dining room. For example, on a seven-night cruise, guests may expect four casual nights, one smart casual night and two formal nights. Three- and four-night cruises usually omit the smart casual night and have one formal night each. Formal wear is usually a suit and tie or tuxedo for the men and cocktail dresses for the women.Learn more about Geography
