Your holiday wardrobe

We all have our own styles and tastes when it comes to clothes. To make sure your holiday wardrobe is ready for any occasion, take a look at our handy dress code guide so you know what dress codes to expect throughout your time away.

What to wear in the evening

Evening Casual

You can bring out your best shirt or keep it a bit more casual, so long as the tracksuits are left on the hanger. From dark denim to casual separates, you can show off your unique style. If you want to wear Evening Casual on Black Tie nights, please see which venues allow this below.

Black Tie

Our Black Tie nights are all about the glitz and glamour; a chance to dress to impress with your favourite cocktail dress, tuxedo, ball gown, suit or smart jacket and tie. If you have any formal national dress or military uniform, you can wear these too.

What to wear during the day

What to wear on board

The dress code during the day is just your typical holiday wardrobe. Think t-shirts, shorts and sundresses (unless you’re heading to Northern Europe in winter!).

Away from the pool, we ask for shoes to be worn 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 be sure to pack light layers. We’d also recommend flat shoes for strolling the decks.

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.


Travelling as a family?

For those travelling on family-friendly ships, our dress codes do not apply to children aged 17 and under. However, they can still dress to impress if they want to!
