Spring Break is just around the corner and that means cruise season is officially starting! Cruises are a great way to take a stress-free vacation that allows you to kick back, relax and not have to worry about itineraries, itemized spending and finding activities to keep the family entertained. They are self-contained, floating islands of fun that have everything you could possibly want for a family vacation. If you’re wondering what to wear and what articles of clothing to pack, here is your guide to bringing just the right pieces to ensure you have a great vacay at sea!
Easy, Breezy Beautiful Maxi Dresses and Sundresses
There’s nothing that is more perfect for a cruise than a breezy, flowy sundress or
maxi dress. Of course, this is assuming your cruise is headed somewhere warm and tropical like the islands in the Caribbean or the southern coast of Italy. Pack a beautiful, brightly colored sundress or a floral maxi dress to match your carefree, sunny surroundings. These dresses also make for the perfect cover-up to throw on over a bathing suit if you’re planning on taking a swim or tanning.
Matching Mommy and Me Vacation Dresses
If you’re bringing your daughter with you on the cruise, you’ll definitely want to take plenty of photos together to commemorate those special moments together with such a beautiful backdrop. Stock up on dresses that are comfortable, beautiful and versatile. Dresses that can be dressed up or down depending on the occasion. This will allow you both to have flexibility with your wardrobe. A
mommy and me floral printed shift dress is a perfect choice for you both to rock aboard your cruise. A pastel-colored empire-waist dress is also a gorgeous spring look that can look gorgeous in pictures but also be dressed down with some sandals to keep you looking ocean-fresh and effortless.
If you’re all about that fit life, don’t neglect your routine on vacation! It might seem tempting to stop cold turkey, but trust us, you’ll feel much better during and after your vacation if you keep with it. Even if you bring down the frequency and intensity, it is still easier on your body if you stick to your routine of regular physical activity. Be sure to bring some comfortable work out sneakers, a cute
printed sports bra and matching printed workout leggings so you can get those squats, lunges, crunches and jogs in on board. You’ll be pleasantly surprised to see other cruise-goers also working out in the early mornings, afternoons or evenings. Many cruises also offer fitness classes, so you’ll definitely want to stay moving and bring that fitness apparel along!
