I got a really cute hat at Wal-Mart. It's like a baseball cap but with a bigger brim - so it keeps the sun off my whole face - had a recent scare with skin cancer so I no longer want to take chances. They come in all colours and don't even look dorky lol. They will also pack very well. I should think you could by a straw hat in any port and that way it becomes a souvenir as well. Enjoy your cruise - not long now lol. TTFN Jennifer
I don't have one yet. I was just trying to figure out what to buy. It seems like a big straw hat would give better sun protection, but what would you do with it on a plane? If we didn't have to fly in to FLL, I'd just wear it to embark like Jane said.
I went to EMS (camping store) and bought a unisex Columbia field hat. It's crushable, easy to wash, and dries very quickly when wet. The crown collapses so I just flatten it and put it on top of my clothes in the suitcase. It cost me about $30 and was worth every penny.
I juat got a cute and practical hat the the county fair. It will be so much better than a straw hat, which I hated lugging to and from and everywhere. This one is treated with 45 spf is foldable, teflon treated ,, has a pocket for ice pack. has a long part that hangs to protect neck. I know Im ready for the safari or something...Anyway I hope it works out..I couldnt resist. It seems like the perfect hat. YOu could look for it and others I believe at www.Adamsheadwear.com sunblock collection....
