Have her bring a light sweater or wrap just in case. I never noticed the cold until our last cruise (Carnival Conquest). It was COLD in the main lounge.........some people even used the big Carnival towels like wraps to keep warm!
I get really cold in the dining rooms - just have her take something she can drape around her neck and/or across her shoulders. It's also handy to take on deck - especially in the evening - where things can get a little breezy. I'm in the middle of menopause so I am always way to warm - except on board lol.
Where will your cruise take you? Wherever - I'm sure you will have a wonderful time.
Cali.... I have even seen some people wearing their robes in the show lounge - do you think that's just to stay warm as well or are they making some sort of fashion statement
i always pack a lightweight sweater or blazer to throw over my shoulders. I also pack a wrap for my formal wear. The dining rooms start out chilly, but once all the people arrive and the warm food gets served it warms up quite nicely.
There's pretty much nowhere on board I wasn't cold!
Yes, take a sweater and a jacket for walks at night on the deck.

Thank you for all the responses. This seems almost universal. Why so cold? I know in some restaurants they keep it cold for the cooks and wait staff . I guess that may be the case here. Any luck in getting the temperature adjusted? Its hard to enjoy a long meal if you're shivering.
It might be that we feel it's really cold because the temperature difference from the outside to the inside is so extreme. Also, because we're all sunburned! Don't think you'll be shivering. A light wrap or sweater and you'll be fine. Enjoy!
