Re: what to wear that first day ?
I wear comfortable boarding clothes, but also pack in my carryon:
casual dress or pants for dinner in case I *don't* get my luggage
sweater (dining rooms can be cold)
all medicines for the family
That way, if I don't get my bags in time for dinner I'm all set. They *do* allow shorts in the dining room on the first night, but the atmosphere, service and decor of the dining rooms do not ever lend themselves to shorts if you ask me. It was so easy to pack a little dress.
