Default dressing on the Paradise

My husband and I are traveling on the Paradise 12/21-12/27. I was wondering what the weather is like down south that time of year. What kind of clothes do we need for that time of year. Also, does anybody know what is planned for Christmas day? Should we bring anything special for that day/night? Thanks for your help. My husband and I are first time cruisers and it will be our first visiting the Eastern Caribbean. What can we expect there?

Laura, I have never been on a December Holiday Cruise, however, my family and I are booked for our third tour on the Paradise. I would imagine that the festive occasion of Christmas warrents festive attire. As far as the Paradise on non holiday cruises, I can tell you I have seen a wide variety of dress.

Hi, Laura ...

It should be warm

Me, I'd take a glittery holiday top to wear with black silk pants and buy my husband a pair of funky Christmas socks !!!

Just for fun, you might want to snag some Christmassy silk boxers for husband darling and tuck them into a corner of your suitcase.

I don't know how old your children are, but you might want to buy very small (in size) gifts and parcel them out on a daily basis.

Of course, there is always that WONDERFUL book, CRUISE CONTROL (OK. so I wrote it) that's a fabulous gift !!!

Anything else, just ask.
