Q: IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m going on a cruise in a couple of weeks with some good friends of mine and I have no idea what to pack. What are some must-have pieces to take on a summer cruise?Ã‚Â Ã‚Â Ã‚Â Ã‚Â Ã‚Â Ã‚Â Ã‚Â Ã‚Â Ã‚Â Ã‚Â Ã‚Â Jenny from Portland, Oregon
A: During this season we recommend packing a wardrobe full of bright colors to take with you on your latest summer cruise. Most people practically live in their bathing suits while on a summer cruise, so your outfits by the pool are easily the most crucial ones youÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll pack. With that said, be sure to bring two to three of your favorite bathing suits, a bottle of sunscreen and your favorite pair of sunglasses to sport by the pool. Opt out of a traditional, black bathing suit and donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t be afraid to sport neon colors and bold patterns. Go shopping beforehand for the perfect sarong or swim suit cover-up to wear to and from the pool and for when you want to grab a quick bite to eat somewhere on the cruise ship. As for regular clothing, pack yourself a handful of light, summer dresses and a few comfortable tank top/shorts combination for day activities and donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t forget to pack a cocktail dress for nicer dinners and events during the evening!
