Cruise ship entertainment: what to wear to onboard events and activities

 Cruising is a great way to see the world while enjoying all the amenities aboard a luxurious ship. From exotic destinations to relaxing days at sea, there is something for everyone on a cruise. 

One of the most popular aspects of a cruise is the onboard entertainment. From live music and comedy shows to casino games and bingo nights, there are numerous events and activities for passengers to enjoy. But what should you wear to these events? Here are some tips:

Swimwear

If you decide to spend time in the pool or hot tub, don't forget your swimwear. You can also wear them to activities like aqua aerobics or a game of water polo. Note that swimwear is rarely allowed in restaurants or bars. You should therefore change your clothes beforehand.

Many cruise ships have fitness centers, running tracks or even climbing walls. If you want to participate in these activities, you should wear comfortable sportswear and sneakers.

A cruise also offers the opportunity to dress up and attend formal evening events. Evening clothing is recommended, for example a suit for men and a cocktail dress for women. This is also often the dress code for casino entertainment.

Some cruise lines also offer themed nights where you can dress appropriately. For example, there may be a "White Night" where you should wear white.

Casual style

while some evening events are formal, most onboard activities are more casual. You can wear comfortable clothes like jeans or shorts and t-shirts to attend activities like bingo nights or karaoke parties. However, if you intend to use the gym or attend a dance class, be sure to wear comfortable athletic clothing.

Shoes

It is important to wear comfortable shoes, especially if you will be spending a lot of time on your feet. Sandals, sneakers or flats are good options for most onboard activities. However, if you are attending formal evening events, you should wear elegant shoes.
