Smart cruising and casual cruising this summer

Date Posted: 11 Jun 2008
With a veritable host of different style cruises available on the market, first time cruisers can be forgiven for feeling a touch overwhelmed in terms of what to opt for on their maiden cruise holiday - let alone what to wear.

Helping to ease the stress of packing, the Ottawa Citizen has compiled some advice on the best sartorial styles to pack for holidays with different cruise lines.

"Proper dining attire varies from ship to ship, depending on the itinerary and length of the voyage," Bob Levinstein, president of CruiseCompete, told the publication.

Mr Levinstein advised that Holland America Line cruises offer a more "comfortable" and "relaxed" dining dress code.

He added that for holidays with Carnival Cruises, formal wear such as evening gowns and tuxedos are required in the dining room however more casual attire can be sported in the Lido restaurants. Celebrity Cruises similarly implements a formal dinnertime dress code.

Holidaymakers looking to enjoy a truly casual cruise holiday when it comes to attire might wish to consider Ocean Village or Norwegian Cruise Lines.

NCL does not enforce fixed meal times and diners are not obliged to dress up unless they wish to.

What our customers say


"I booked a Fred Olsen cruise with IGLU last month and was so impressed by the service I received. The staff member I spoke to was Kimberley and she was exemplary. Capable, kind, professional, patient, friendly and knowledgeable. She went through every step of the way calmly and thoroughly. IGLU were recommended to me by friends and I have no hesitation in passing the recommendation along. Well done IGLU and thank you. "

"So easy to deal with, I studied the Cruise I wanted, did my research with different company's and returned to Iglu. I had three quotes matching Iglu’s cost, but with one phone call they beat the price themselves by £40 without me even asking, how easy was that! "
