    med cruise April 8th weather - what to wear

    Hi We have booked FO Braemar Med cruise 8th April, Dover > three days at sea > lisbon , malaga, cartegena, palma, barcelona ,gibraltar ,la coruna (Spain) , 2 days at sea . Dover.
    Looking at the snow outside now I am really panicking as to what to pack .
    Ive only been to hot cruise places - presume the formal wear and cocktail dresses will be o k to still take and wear (The are sleevless & some backless but if we stay in doors is it hot enough ?)
    Its the day time - any suggestions - ( I dont think the bikinis/ flip flops will get an airing somehow ) day wear and foot wear.
    Thinking about 3 days at sea and dont want to stay on the ship at ports of call if its cold or rainy - but may go sunny

    what a nightmare !
    Many thanks for any help

    Hi, we came back from a a world cruise in April into Barcelona, although the sky was blue it was very cold at first, , so I advise a fleece slacks and flat shoes, It gradually warmed up and by lunchtime we were able to remove the fleece . enjoy your cruise. CG

      Thanks Cornish Girl - layering seems to be best then.
      never thought I would take a fleece on a cruise !

        We once went on a cruise in April. We left Malta wearing very light clothes but it was really cold in Marseilles and we ended up buying thermal underwear to wear under our summery clothes. I had taken a cardigan and a light jacket and even though I wore them both together I still felt cold.
        Plus remember that while the ship is sailing it will be coldish so a fleece would come in handy.

          We had a week in Barcelona one February. One day it was very very cold. The next day we were eating at a pavement cafe just in chinos and T shirts. I hope you are lucky and get some much needed sun.

            I would have thought that layers is definitely the way to go at this time of year. Hoping for some nice spring weather for you.

              Thanks for all your good advice went to mums today she is really started to get organised with jackets and trousers - giving me a daily report of weather over there - seems to be generally 19 degrees so much better than here.
              Thank you all
