Default Wraps, Shawls, Pashimas, Sweaters, what do you pack?

I pack a white lightweight cardigan sweater -(goes with everything) to throw over my shoulders for casual nights.
I pack a wrap to match my gown for formal night

I pack a couple of nice jackets to go along with my casual and maybe a wrap to go with formal.

All my dressy things have long sleeves, so I don't usually get a chill in the dining room. Walking on the deck at night is so brief, I am back inside quickly, but I do love the pashmina look.

I pack a lightweight dressy black sweater. I find the dining rooms and show room can be a little cool for me.

I drink Foo Foo drinks and let my hubby walk with his arms around me.

All of the above. A white or off white sweater, a black blazer, brown blazer or sweater, reversable wind breaker jacket. I pack a sweatshirt and some long sleeve tops as well as short sleeve, and sleeveless. Better safe then sorry. Ships A/C are way too cold for my small frame.

I am always freezing in the AC!! I never go anywhere without a sweater, shawl, bolero jacket or something! I love getting the $10 Pashminas onboard in a variety of colours - they make great gifts too!

Default Wraps, Shawls, Pashminas, Whagt you You Pack?

This time for the Cruise of the Century, I'm taking a cotton Ralph Lauren sweater that I got on sale, plus heaven knows what else! I haven't gotten that far yet! My DH accuses me of shopping for the whole year ahead of this cruise. What fun!

I have been a wrap fanatic for a long time. I usually bring 2 of my favorite ones and buy 2 more at the $10 Terner shop onboard. I give some of them away as gifts and I also made my daughter some mini shawls from a couple of them

Pashima is great especially on chilly cruise ship. I tend to take long chiffon scarves, which lets me wear my long black skirt or evening pants, a white tank top and some flea market jewelry and look great!

You can buy Pashimas onboard for $10?? I'll be on a Carnival cruise. It is my first cruise and I didn't know what kind of shops were onboard. Would you find these in a Carnival shop? If so, I can do my shopping for gifts at one stop and won't have to lug things around the islands! No t-shirts this time! My daughters will be happy!!

Please don't think of me as unworldly, but what is a Pashimas? I was hoping that someone else would ask, but now the suspense is killing me. I fear that I have had one, and didn't know that's what it was called.
If it only cost 10.00 then I probably have had one.

Luann, I had to do a quick "Google" search to see what it was. It looks to be a "shawl" but I couldn't tell you what the difference was!

Someone will enlighten us I'm sure.

I have a pink pashmina that my sister bought me a few years ago on board the Carnival Glory. They are a good buy for 10$. Also I bring some other sheer, or sparkly wraps that I get on clearance. After Christmas there are a lot of sales on formal wear like purses and wraps. Most of mine that I get I wait until they are over 50% off! Good deal for something I only wear once or twice a year,

Default What is a pashmina?

A pashmina is simply an oversized shawl. Usually a 80/20, 70/30 or even a 50/50 blend of cashmere and silk respectively. An authentic pashmina is made of hairs shorn from the underbelly of Himalayan goats – giving a material a plush softer-than-cashmere texture. Generally the size of a pashmina is 28? x 80?.

Hope this helps.

Default Pashminas

Which ship do they sell the $10 pashminas on? I'm going on the Enchantment on RCL next week and I'd love to get them as gifts.

I got my pashmina on the carnival glory. I don't know about RCL. It even washed beautiful...just needed to be ironed and it was as good as new. Have fun!

I've seen the $10 pashimas on the Grand Princess, the Norwegian Sun and the Carnival Conquest. I think it's a fairly standard item now, the new inch of gold, if you will.

One of my other favorites is to wear pareos as a skirt. Took me a while to figure out how to tie it so it hung right but now I love them. They pack down to nothing and can be tied around the neck for great bathing suit cover ups. I have a strapless suit and they look particularly good with that style. And they come in such great colors. Each one reminds me of the island where I got it. What a treat.

The Valor had them in MANY colors - one style, one fabric.

Where are you cruising and how much time do you plan to be on deck after dinner? Will you be in port, in protected water, or on open sea? A light shawl is all you need in the Southern Caribbean, even if you are outside at 2:00 am. On the other hand, if you are in Glacier Bay or at the tip of Cape Horn, think WARM! Think winter coat, hats, and gloves! Some of our best cruises have been to destinations that were chilly!

My wife never cruises without packing, at least, two pareos. She loves them.

In regard to sweaters or shawls. One persons hot is another person's freezing. In 26 years the only "real" arguments that my wife and I have gotten into are over the setting on the thermostat. She thinks 75 is cold. I think it's hot.

I think Alaska is a nice warm place.

Take care,
Mike

You sound very like me. I think I'm packing far too much and shopping too much too! I'm even shopping for my mum, for crying out loud!

In terms of wraps etc, I have a kafkan for the beach and a couple of pareos (don't weight much and hardly take any space). For evening wear, I have a cashemere silvery colour pashmina that goes with all the evening dresses I'm taking (a black an invory/silvery cocktail dress and a teak colour which I'm teaming with silver accessories).

I haven't thought of a sweater but yes, good idea for over casual gear, or perhaps a light fleece. I just never thought that the Caribbean would get so cold but I expect it could get breeze at night.

Here's a list of "What to Bring".

Alas, you'll need several suitcases and a small trunk.

It does, however, make you think.
