Default Climate

I have read on these message boards that it can be cold in certain areas on board. We are going to the Caribbean. Do I really need a cardigan? My husband is talking about buying a smart casual jacket. Will he get wear out of it?

The Caribbean is very warm, but there may be a need for a very light jacket out on deck in the evening. As far as inside the ship goes, that depends on the individual ship, the line, your tolerance for air conditioning, the hotel manager's notion of the proper temp. etc. You can control the temp in your stateroom, but for me at least, sometimes the public rooms can be over air conditioned. I find that they are frequently too cool for me, and I have to go outside to warm up. On the other hand my wife seems to thrive on air conditioning. You probably will not need the sweater or the jacket, but might as well take them just in case. The smart casual jacket might work for informal nights dining. Bon Voyage

If this is the same pennypenny going on the Golden Princess...I felt the temp was fine in the ship...I actually found it warm the one time I wore a jacket to formal night. I only went out on deck a few nights and it was very breezy so you may want something to cover your shoulders...

I always take a couple of light weight shawls or sweaters (cardigans) because I find the show rooms in the evnings to be over air conditioned and quite chilly when you are just sitting.

Bon Voyage!

Hi pennypenny,

I agree with most of the others. I'm almost always too HOT everywhere I go, but in the show rooms onboard I've been cool 8) !

Take a sweater!

I always pack a lightweight sweater for breezy port or at sea days. I also pack a shawl, wrap or pashima to throw over my shoulders in the evenings - especially if i am wearing something sleeveless. DH will pack a casual, lightweight jacket for breezy port/at sea days., a blazer will also do just fine

We find it warm outside, but very chilly sometimes in the dining room and showrooms. I always have a pashmina or some sort of shawl to throw over my shoulders, and DH often wears a sport jacket in evening, just for warmth INSIDE the ship!
