What to Wear?

Daytime Wear
Casual attire is the order of the day. We suggest the following:

  • · Men: shorts, polo shirts, t-shirts, etc
  • · Women: shorts and tops (short sleeved or sleeveless), sundresses, etc

We suggest rubber-soled, low heeled or flat shoes for extra traction while onboard. Note: The use of any footwear with wheels, including but not limited, to Heelys© shoes, is prohibited on board our ships.

The Lido Restaurant is open daily for breakfast and lunch and has a more relaxed dress code than the Main Dining Room(s); however, shirts and footwear (including flip-flops) must be worn at all times.

Evening Wear
Most evenings we have a Cruise Casual dress code, but there are those Cruise Elegant evenings where guests will have the opportunity to showcase their more elegant attire (one evening on a 2-5 day cruise; two evenings on a 6-day or longer cruise). The dress codes are described below and pertain to children as well.

For those who want casual attire for dinner time, the Lido Restaurant is open nightly and has a more relaxed dress code than the Main Dining Room(s); however, shirts and footwear (including flip-flops) must be worn at all times.

Following is the dress code for the Main Dining Room(s):

Cruise Casual Dress Code

  • Men: sport slacks, khakis, Jeans (no cut-offs), dress shorts (long), collared sport shirts
  • Women: casual dresses, casual skirts or pants and blouses/tops, summer dresses, Capri pants, dress shorts, Jeans (no cut-offs)
  • Not permitted for both men and women: cut-off Jeans, men’s sleeveless shirts, gym or basketball shorts, baseball hats, flip-flops and bathing suit attire

  • Not permitted for both men and women: Jeans, men’s sleeveless shirts, shorts, t-shirts, sportswear, baseball hats, flip-flops and bathing suit attire

Special Cruises

For Canada/New England/Alaska cruises: Sweaters, lightweight jackets and raincoats are suggested. Casual clothes that can be layered easily are highly recommended. Bring a heavier sweater if you are traveling to the glaciers along with a raincoat and umbrella because it is often cold and windy in such areas.

For Europe and South America cruises: Comfortable shoes and a just-in-case raincoat. Bring a sweater if you are traveling to the glaciers, along with a raincoat and umbrella because it is often cold and windy in such areas. Important Note: It is essential that you wear the proper apparel when visiting the Vatican and other religious sites (no bare legs or shoulders).
