To help speed up your pre-cruise packing process, keep in mind that most evenings have a 'Cruise Casual' dresscode. However, there are 'Cruise Elegant' evenings on one or two occasions where you can show your more elegant attire off. For such evenings, dress slacks, dress shirts or a suit and a tie are suggested for men. Women should pack cocktail dresses, pantsuits, elegant skirts and blouses, or even an evening gown. Casual daytime attire includes shorts, summer dresses, bathing suits and coverups. Dress code is dependant on climates of your chosen destinations so make sure to pack sweaters (heavy sweaters for glacier visits), layers and rain attire for places like Canada and Alaska.
