By researching the weather conditions of the area you are traveling to and reading about your excursions, you can come up with a packing list that suits all of your needs. At Paloma Clothing, we work exclusively with eco-friendly clothing brands, like Cut Loose and Fat Hat. The clothing is made from natural fibers so we can play our role in finding sustainable solutions for the earth. Here, Paloma Clothing lists some of the most basic packing items for your cruise and how we can help you find them.

Shorts and T-shirts

Because there are so many things to do on cruises, it’s important to pack for all the possibilities. You want to make sure that the outfits you bring are appropriate for many occasions, from the beach to excursions to more dressy occasions. Packing a variety of cruise-wear for women and reviewing your itinerary can help you become better prepared. Paloma Clothing carries a variety of women’s tops and bottoms to keep you comfortable during warmer weather. We ensure to look out for the trendiest styles that meet the demands of today’s fashion world.

Customers can browse our selection of T-shirts, sleeveless shirts, and tank tops to find what to wear on a cruise. We also offer many shorts in different styles, lengths, and materials. We also have beautiful options for women’s blouses and other business casual attire to slip into after a long day of exploring. At Paloma Clothing, we also have a variety of women’s skirt options that can work to dress up any look.

Bathing Suits

One cruise-wear item you can’t leave your home without is your bathing suit. Cruises offer the perfect opportunity to relax and soak up some sun. It also gives you the chance to visit new and warmer places and spend time with loved ones. One large amenity of a cruise is the feeling that you’re on an exclusive resort while traveling. Many cruises offer pool areas, water parks, sunbathing areas, and more so you can find more ways to enjoy the sun. You want to make sure you can take advantage of everything your cruise has to offer, and that starts by coming prepared and packing a few bathing suits.

At Paloma Clothing, customers can finish off their beach day look by checking out our inventory of sweaters, overcoats, and other women’s tops that work as a bathing suit cover-up. From classy and nautical to beachy and boho, women can find any style that suits them best at our store.

Formal Wear

When going on a cruise, you should also prepare for formal dinners. Some ships plan a formal night, or Captain’s Night, which is a designated night during your vacation where travelers can enjoy dinner, drinks, shows, and other entertainment, all while dressed to the nines. During this time, vacationers are expected to dress in formal attire. Formal cruise attire can include women’s dresses, skirts, pants, and other clothing items. Some cruises may also have certain dress code requirements for some of their dining establishments. In this case, you want to make sure you pack enough formal wear to last your entire cruise. Everyone can find something they love at our store by sorting through our variety of styles and colors for casual sundresses, formal gowns, and more.
