Thank you,
welcome to cruisemates Dona

I would let the weather be the deciding factor what to wear in your ports-of-call, if you are asking about dressing up? Absoluetely NO need for that.
Just wear what you feel comfy in, some ports obviously you do not want to have "TOURIST" plastered all over your forehead. Just my opinion.

I have been studying dress for Italy and it's my understanding the wear big white nikes or other tennis shoes mark you as a tourist. So I got a nice pair of black walking shoes.

On most cruises, jeans and shorts are quite acceptable for wear ashore.

The one exception is in the Mediterranean, where most shore excursions visit churches and other houses of worship that have magnificent art and very strict dress codes that forbid shorts. These dress codes, which apply euqally to ladies and gentlemen, typically require that clothing cover the shoulders, the knees, and everything in between -- thus forbidding shorts, sleeveless tops, athletic shirts, plunging necklines, and skirts or dresses cut at or above the knee. Capris, skirts cut below the knee, etc., are acceptable. Many of the churches also require each lady to cover her head (with a hat or a kerchief, for example) while inside.

Norm.
