If you are planning a cruise holiday, you may be worried about what to wear on board. With a range of formal and informal dress codes, it can be a nightmare to decide what to pack.
One passenger, who has been on multiple cruises, has revealed her fears about the ‘dress code’ for swimming on board. She told Express.co.uk: “I have been on multiple cruises and each time I have been worried about what to wear when it comes to swimwear.
“You will get judged no matter what you wear. I have seen people wearing tiny bikinis, and others wearing maxi dresses and even full body suits. It can be a bit intimidating.”
The passenger revealed that while some ships have a more relaxed attitude towards swimwear, others have strict rules. She continued: “I have been on ships where they ask you to cover up when you leave the pool, and others where you can wear whatever you like.
“It’s important to check the dress code before you go, so you know what is and isn’t allowed. It can be a bit embarrassing if you turn up in something that is not allowed.”
The passenger also said that it is important to remember that you are on a cruise, and not at the beach. She added: “It’s important to remember you are in a public place and to dress appropriately. It’s also important to respect other people’s opinions and not judge people for what they choose to wear.”
Overall, it is important to remember that a cruise is a public place and you should dress accordingly. If in doubt, it is worth checking the dress code before you go, so you know what is allowed. Above all, respect each other’s opinions and don’t judge people for what they choose to wear.
