Holidaymakers set to embark on their first cruise break may be having trouble deciding what clothes to pack, but these people have been given some potentially helpful advice.
Writing for Hit Search, Andrew Redfern has revealed that cruise liners are now a lot more open on their dress codes than has been the case in the past, giving travellers the chance to be more casual rather than formal.
Mr Redfern remarks that companies such as Princess Cruises
and Norwegian Cruise Lines
are among those to allow more casually-dressed passengers on board, with the decision believed to be helping to increase younger cruiser numbers.
However, holidaymakers may still need to pack their smarter clothes as this flexibility may be broken by the odd 'dress-up' night, where men don their tuxedos.
The writer does remark that the most sensible thing that a person can do is check with their cruise liner before leaving to go on their trip.
In the past on certain cruise liners it was required for all passengers to be in formal dress by early evening.
