What Should I Wear on a Cruise? A Guide to Cruise Line Dress Codes


Few issues create as much confusion among cruisers as what to wear to dinner. Some cruise line dress codes accept a clean T-shirt and jeans as acceptable evening attire, while others require a jacket and tie if you want to dine in the main restaurant. If you're wondering what you should wear on a cruise, especially onboard at night, here's how each major cruise line would like you to dress.

Here's one way to make the choice(s)...easier.

I was thrown out of the pub on Cunard's Queen Victoria for "not having a jacket after 6pm"

Dress for comfort, dining is generally the only thing that MAY dictate a dress code. If you are going to the buffet primarily, t-shirts, flip flops and shorts; if doing seated dining, then nicer clothing such as capri's, pants, sundress, etc. Men should wear collared shirt. Some ships are very casual, some more formal. Often they have a "dress night", you can get gussied up if you want. You'll almost always feel a little better if you are overdressed rather than under dressed. During the day, just depends on what you are out and about doing. Avoid looking too flashy with lots of jewelry when off the boat if just wandering around (not with tour group) as you may make yourself a target. Have fun!

This thread is one of many reasons why I don't go on cruises. I don't want anybody telling me what to wear.

To get back on subject - Our first cruise maybe 40 years ago I took 2 not 1 tuxedos. Back then there were usually 2 dress up nights and I wanted to do it right. I have taken a tux since but not too often. I do pack a suit and a sports coat and wear them. But that being said...... I have walked into the dining room next to people in swim suits, shorts, jeans and 1 guy had a UNC baby blue basketball uniform on. I'm thinking when he heard "Captain's Dinner" he was thinking "Team Captain"

If I ever did go on a cruise, I would pack a bathing suit, a couple of pair of shorts and t-shirts, and crocs. Done

No black flip-flops for formal night?
