Neil & Ida Down - Answered a Question by Forbes (01 Dec 08 19:37)

Because the whole of your cruise is in the Caribbean and the outside temperature should be in the 80'Fs/26-30'C you will need three types of clothing. Casual summer wear for time during the day, something more dressy for evening wear and something for formal wear. Extras could include clothing for leaving and arriving in this country (or wherever) and maybe something for inside on the ship because the AC can be quite chill after being outside for a while. I have no idea what you have in your wardrobe but personally I would leave those jeans behind and take shorts or light slacks as there is very little place for jeans on board and they are heavy and bulky. Hope that helps, Ida.

We have been twice on Sea Princess which is one of the 'not too formal' ships!! For the evenings I usually take black jersey 'evening' trousers (easy to pack and don't crease!) and team up with various glittery and not so glittery tops, with perhaps a cocktail type dress for the formal evenings...my partner takes his black suit and wears with bow tie and white shirt for formal evenings...other evenings he wears polo shirt or short sleeve cotton shirt and lightweight trousers (grey or beige). we have not long returned from the Caribbean and did notice it stays very warm in the evenings unlike the Med where it gets cooler. Daytimes I wore linen/cotton trousers or skirt with strappy tops (and perhaps a loose blouse to go over the top to protect from the sun) to go ashore and shorts and strappy tops with flip flops on board the ship. Hope this helps a bit!!

I have noticed you are on the christmas cruise , so you will find alot of ladies dressed up on even he smart casual evenings. To be honest we were on for the new yearlast year and I really took too much day clothes and not enough eveing stuff as everyone seems to go to town over thechristmas and new year.....and my goodness everyone looked lovely. Day time was casual i e shorts summer dresses and such. we had our travelling clothes laundered for our return. Have a wonderful time and look after her as we are returning on 27 in barbados,< with extra glad rags bought in the sales.>.

Five Of My Favourites !

By Camilla Edwards

Well its very nearly Christmas and all I wish for now is some snow! Walking the dog this morning everywhere was frosty and white, made me really feel in the festive spirit. One of the best things personally at this time of the year is the food and celebrations associated with Christmas and New Year, so this week I have decided to blog about 5 of my favourite places to eat. Some on cruise ships, some not.Fed Olsen Balmoral. I always enjoy the food on Fred`s ships and Balmoral last year was no...

My final update on my recent trip on Independance of the seas is all about my dining experience.I can honestly say I was not disappointed with one meal I had.You can literally eat 24 hours a day. The group was on second sitting which was 8.30 in the main dining room The Romeo and Juliet. The choice in there was great something for everyone and the staff were very attentive and gave us their recommendations at every meal.Also in here you can have A la Carte Breakfast from 7.30am to 9.30am an...

Calling all Small Ship Lovers.

By Nicola Milligan

Nicola Milligan's blog

Cast your mind back to 2015. and the sad news when P & O told us that the much loved 710 passenger adult only ship ADONIA was leaving their fleet.Lots of the small ship lovers were devastated as so many huge new ships were coming onto the market leaving a vast hole for the smaller more intimate ships.We were told she was joining Fathom Cruises a line that enables guests to do something good to help out poorer countries. So Volunteers through tourism can help locals learn English and build...
