What I did when I went on my cruises was pack enough for the days and then some. On the days at sea or the days your doing stuff in your bathing suite you won't really wear clothes so at night u wear the ones you had for the day. I found out that I didn't really need two outfits a day. Some days I needed em both but for the most part you will most likely be ok without all of em. I just got back from my cruise and I didn't wear everything I took with me

well i am a overpacker too....i take alot of stuff that can me mixed and matched so i can have alot of different outfits with the same stuff....one thing taht i accadentaly took that i really didnt need was my winter hat accadentally fell in the suit case . But one thing i took on my first cruise was too much warm stuff...a sweat shirt and a pair of sweats is good cuze sometimes the air conditiong is to much in some areas like the area where you can go see movies. I also took to many accessories such as belts and hats on my last cruise....2 of the nice dangley belts for on my jeans and 2 hats to wear out at night are enough if u overpack that suff

When I went on my cruise I definately overpacked. I took way to much dressy stuff. Dressy meaning lilke khaki shorts/ nice shirts ect.. During the days where you arent at a port of call you usually wont need any clothes for during the day, you are usually just in your suit/soffe(gym) shorts. Durning the days where you have shore excursions it is up to you. A pair of cute shorts and a tank/halter top is what I saw the most of. But at night it is up to you. Most people I saw changed out of their dinner clothes into cute skirts/pants and semi-dressy tops. But..to me there is no such thing as overpacking as long as you can handle the bag in the airport.

Well when im on the cruise i usually change about 5 times a day. One to wake up and go around the island...then i come back and change into my bathing suit....then i change into something casual before dinner...then i change for dinner....then i change to go to the club, so as you can see i most definitely overpack. But I definitely think its better to overpack then to be there and be like "Damn, I really should have brought that white hoodie!" You know? I like to have insurance policies. So take whatever you think you might need...

How should I pack my formal night dresses? I have two evening gowns, and don't want them to get crushed with my luggage.

We always take a hang up bag for our dinner clothes. My dinner clothes never get too wrinkled in that. I hope this helps!

Hey,
Hi there.
I packed 3 outfits per day.One for day time,One for diner,and one for partying.
Just be cautious when over packing cause they might charge you extra $$ if your bag is to heavy.
Lada Luck and Luv,
Jenna
