I AM GOING ON MY FIRST CRUISE 2-19-05 ON THE GLORY. I WILL BE TRAVEL WITH MY FAMILY (HUSBAND AND 4 KIDS) WILL THERE BE A NEED TO PACK WARMER CLOTHES ( JEANS, SWEATSHIRT) FOR NIGHTS ON THE BOAT? HOW COOL WILL IT GET DURING THE EVENING? WE WILL BE DURING THE EASTERN CARRIBEAN AND AND ANY OTHER ADVISE WOULD BE HELPFUL.
We just returned from a 4 night cruise to the Bahamas in December. Yes pack long pants and a sweater or sweatshirt for evenings if you go on deck. It's not so much the cold but the wind. My husband wouldn't listen and he ended up buying a sweatshirt on the ship. (made a nice souvenir though) If your inside the ship you'll be okay in long pants also just maybe won't need the sweater. Don't make the mistake I made by over packing. One sweater/sweatshirt should be okay for the whole cruise if its 3/4 nights, two if it's longer. Have a great time. HAPPY NEW YEAR
