Embarkation day is all about having fun, so wearing what you’re comfortable in is key. Here are some examples of what I usually see cruisers wear when boarding the ship:
- Short sleeve or sleeveless tops.
- Golf shirts or polos.
- Casual button-up shirts or blouses.
- Casual pants.
What should you not wear on a cruise?
Don’t wear flip flops, sleeveless shirts (for men), cut-off jeans, T-shirts or gym shorts. If you want to attend a “cruise elegant” evening, bring a fancier, more formal outfit.

Do you have to dress up every night on a cruise?
You don’t have to dress up at all! That’s right, if you want to wear shorts and tanktops all day, every day of your cruise there is no reason you cannot. Royal Caribbean has a few dress codes that are only for dining in select restaurants. Otherwise, you can wear whatever suits you all the time.

For touring and active excursions in port, sneakers, sturdy walking shoes or hiking boots are suitable. You may also want sneakers for the onboard gym. At night, women should wear comfortable heals, sandals or flats; boat and dress shoes are good choices for men.

(Items that generate heat or produce an open flame. This includes heating pads, clothing irons, hotplates, candles, incense and any other item that may create a fire hazard.

Can I wear a thong on a cruise?
Yes, you can wear a thong swimsuit on a cruise. There are no rules against it, and depending on where you sail from, you’ll find others doing the same. As well, depending on where you sail from, you’re likely to see other people wearing thong swimsuit.
What is the first thing you do when you go on a cruise?

- Make Dining, Spa, and Entertainment Reservations.
- Change out of Your Travel Clothes.
- Get an Umbrella Drink.
- Tour the Ship.
- Put Your Phone on Airplane Mode.

What is the best time to board a cruise ship?
We recommend getting to the terminal either early (11 a.m. to noon), before the rush, or late (after 2 p.m.), when most people are already onboard. You might still have a little wait, but it won’t be anything compared to peak boarding time.
Do they search your bags on a cruise?
All checked bags on cruise ships are scanned. Passengers must pass through an airport-style detector but do not have to remove shoes; they will have a digital photo taken. Any sealed alcohol usually is confiscated and returned at the end of the cruise, both at home port and ports of call during the journey.
What do you wear on a sunset dinner cruise?
We recommend you dress comfortably in clothes you don’t mind getting wet and bring a light jacket with you as well as a towel. There is no swimming on our dinner sails, but there is always a chance you can get splashed (especially if you take advantage of sitting up front on our fun and exciting trampolines).
What is the most casual cruise line?
Holland America Line may not be as flexible as Carnival, NCL or Royal Caribbean, but it’s the luxury line with the most casual approach to cruise attire.
Are meals included in cruise prices?
Is food included on a cruise, or do I have to pay extra? Your cruise fare always includes food for breakfast, lunch and dinner on a cruise ship. The main dining room and cruise ship buffet will always be included in your cruise fare, though a few specialty items might cost extra.
