Things to Pack for a Cruise Vacation

Going on a cruise is all about relaxing, having fun and feeling good. It’s about leaving your daily stresses at home and focusing on some much-needed time in the sun. The last thing you should be worrying about is what to wear. When you’re trying to decide which things to pack for a cruise, it can start to feel daunting. There’s no shopping mall nearby in case you forget something on a cruise and no 2-day shipping for last-minute, late night, online shopping. And who knows how the weather will behave? 

What you wear on a cruise should feel comfortable and stylish. It should match the carefree mood on board the cruise ship, while still being versatile enough for various onboard activities. The ideal cruise wardrobe makes you feel confident and ready to be yourself. 

You Can’t Bring It All

Unfortunately for some of us, we can’t bring our whole closet on board our much-anticipated cruise. Make sure not to bring heavy, bulky items that you may only wear for one night (like a fancy jacket or dressy boots). When deciding on things to pack for a cruise, focus on layer-able basics, fun accessories to spice them up and a couple of light statement pieces for fancier nights. 

Luckily, with Cottonways, you don’t have to stress about what to bring in terms of clothes. At Cottonways we focus on combining stylish vacation fashion made of comfortable, versatile cotton. We believe beautiful clothes should be able to move, breathe, and make way for your radiant self to shine. Our flowy and fashionable clothing is ideal for a cruise ship vacation.

What to Pack for a Cruise (the basics):

  • Sun screen
  • Sun glasses
  • Cotton clothes
  • Non-skid shoes and flip flops 
  • Sun hat
  • Layering clothes
  • Long pants (it can cool at night)
  • Windbreaker (you’re on the open ocean, afterall)
  • Medications (prescription and over-the-counter)
  • Good books
  • An appetite

In terms of clothing, the lovely 100% cotton gauze fabric of Cottonways apparel means your cruise attire will be lightweight, incredibly comfortable and oh-so flattering. Always preshrunk and washer and dryer safe, Cottonways clothes are your new packing staple.
