Come as you are

We’re all individual, which is why we want you to wear whatever suits you. Whatever your style preferences, we want you to wear whatever makes you feel… well, you! So, if you’re into trad trousers, vintage classics, or cutting-edge trends, have a read of our easy-to-use guide, so that you can confidently strut your stuff on your next holiday.

What casual clothing should I pack?

Here is some general advice from us as to what you can wear on board and ashore during your holiday.

Day wear - on board

You should feel comfortable and wear what you’re happy in. From T-shirts to shorts, sundresses to skirts (unless, of course, you’re heading to colder climates in the winter!), you can wear whatever you please during the day. Our only ask is, if you’re away from the pool, please wear shoes and no pool wear in the ship’s lounges, inside bars, restaurants or reception. It may be chilly on deck and breezy in the evening (even in the tropics), so we also recommend packing a few light layers.

Day wear – heading ashore

There’s so much to explore in each beautiful destination so it’s probably best to get your walking shoes on. Flat shoes tend to be the best for longer walks or in older cities – cobbles and high heels aren’t the best of friends! Depending on what you fancy exploring, you might pop into air-conditioned museums or cooler churches, so take a shawl, sweatshirt or light jumper, even on balmy days. Please remember that some cultures may require you to cover up too. And naturally, if you’re travelling to sunnier climes, sunglasses or hats may be needed.

Dress codes for the evening – Evening Casual

Bring out your best shirt or keep it a bit more casual; you can do what suits you, so long as the tracksuits are left behind. From dark denim to casual separates, dresses to skirts, you can choose something you’re comfortable in. Plus, if you’re travelling on a fly-cruise, you could pack your best tailored shorts, as these will be allowed in certain venues around the ship.

Are there seasonal or celebratory dress codes?

For those who love to party in a theme night or dress up for their favourite seasonal event, we have just a few rules.

What themed nights do we have?

We have a range of fun-filled theme nights such as 70s disco, 80s pop, colourful tropical or splendid black and white. On nights like these, have fun with it! It’s totally fine to opt for smart-casual mode. We also hold seasonal events for Halloween and Christmas where we love to see our guests really show their true colours!

What fancy dress items aren't allowed?

The last thing we want to do is dampen your fun, but we do have a few exemptions. We celebrate freedom of expression, but will not allow any clothing that features inappropriate or offensive language. Novelty clothing with printed images or slogans will not be allowed on board. We also reserve the right to deny embarkation to guests who are inappropriately dressed. Please note, this policy does not apply to children aged 17 or under.

What are the dining and formal dress codes?

Celebration nights and formal events are a great time to glam up and feel fab. And for our guests wondering if you need to dress up for dinner, here are some handy tips.

Formal evenings

Celebration Nights give you the option to put your most fashionable foot forward. Elegance is the order of the evening… a chance to wow everyone with a favourite cocktail dress, tuxedo, ball gown, DJ, or a suit, jacket and tie. You may also wear formal national dress or military uniform. Again, whatever style preference, simply join in the mood and chic of the evening.

Evening Dining dress codes

There are no strict dress codes for our restaurants. Comfy smart-casual is best and we recommend dark denim, trousers, skirts, shirts, or dresses. No tracksuits, football shirts or trainers please.
