Default Shopping for cruise wear this season

Ladies,


The stores are now carrying Spring/Summer items and I suggest you that you stock up on things that even if you don't need now, you can use on a future cruise during winter. For example shorts, swimsuits, sunglasses, t-shirts, summer dresses, sandals (flip flops) etc. This past Winter I paid $85 for a swimsuit at a department store. Good ones can be found a discount stores now (Loehmans, Marshalls, etc.) for $20 bucks and up..... Don't forget caps, summer hats.....splurge on these items now - so no need to worry later or have to pay top prices for them. ..

Hi New Yorker,
Great advise!! I would also add, check the summer sales in July for even better bargains, it never hurts to pick up an extra swimsuit and half price :-)

I went to Burlington Coat this weekend & found a nice sarong. The price ranges were from $6.99-$25.00. I'm glad they are starting to put summer things out. I had a hard time finding Watershoes, but Sports Authority finally put some out.
