So how many times a day do you change...

your clothes? I am maybe overthinking this! We have 3 at sea days, and I am thinking I'd get dressed for breakfast, then change to go to the pool? Then change after the pool, then change for dinner? Seems like a lot of changing????

What is an at sea day like as far as clothing goes?

Thanks again!

On sea days, I wear my suit and cover-up to breakfast and change for dinner.

I always over pack no matter how many times I say I won't.

Then I don't wear half of what I bring.



I Usually changed twice a day. Day clothes then night clothes.

Same for me. I get up (shower) put on my bathing suit and cover-up, head out for the day. After the daytime activities, I head to the cabin to shower again and get dressed for dinner. Stay in those clothes for the rest of the evening. Pretty much live in a swimsuit and cover-up on sea days.

If I book a 7 night cruise, I pack for 4 days worth of clothes. I do laundry midway through the week (usually a sea day) and I'm good to go the rest of the week. I can pack everything in one carry on. I roll my clothes and when I get home, I don't have a whole lot to unpack, only having one small suitcase. Less stress, less mess

1) Breakfast & clothes for whatever I am doing in the first part of the day.
2) Change in the afternoon after swimming or shore excursions (although if I haven't done either I rarely change out of my day clothes)
3) Change for dinner
4) Sometimes I will change back into my afternoon clothes especially if hanging out on deck after dinner.
5) Change into pajamas

I try to reuse clothes since many times they are only worn for an hour or two, but we have always done laundry half way through our cruises.

Us too. If it doesn't fit in carry on, it doesn't go on the cruise! Or any vacation really

Something that has only been on my body for a couple of hours can be re-worn. As to changing, it depends on what my plans are for the day.

Gym--wear "yesterday's" bra and possibly t-shirt and shorts
Shower, and put on clean everything--shorts and t-shirt usually
? change to pool clothes in the afternoon
dinner clothing
often back to shorts and t-shirt or pants and t shirt for evening (depending on comfort level of evening clothes.

This is not something where changing is a big deal except maybe for dressy dinners. It's not a lot different than going from street clothes to scrubs and back again, and that takes essentially no time at all.

I do bring a lot of undergarments. But that's my preference.

I would shower in the morning, get dress and go to breakfast. If we want to go to the pool or aquaduck, I would go back, change into a swimsuit. When we're done, I go back and shower and change into new undergarment but re-wear my shorts/capris and shirt. Before dinner, we go back and shower and change into dinner clothes and new undergarments. After dinner, we go back and change to shorts/capris and shirt again. Before bed, I will shower again.

So, that a total of at least 4 changes. Unless I did anything strenuous during the day, I would wear one set of shorts/capri and shirt on and off during the day, 4 sets of undergarments, 1 swimsuit (can re-wear for another day before washing) and then 1 set of dinner clothes (also can re-wear for another day), and of course pjs. I usually over pack and tend to only do one or two loads of laundry if needed.

We have only done MR cruises and it was quite windy/chilly on sea days so we had different clothing needs. But I have a question after reading all of the previous posts about wearing swimsuits all day.... In the Caribbean and Bahamas... Is it soooo hot that you need to spend time in the pools just to survive? I am not much of a pool person and am now quite frankly worried that I will be hotter that heck all day with no relief. We have B2Bs booked in Feb.

No not hot. Just personal preference. We don't tend to spend a lot of times indoors and it's just easier to wear swim and cover up.

I am the queen of over packing... I normally go through 2 outfits a day.... regular clothes, and the clothes for the dining rooms. I normally pack 10 regular outfits... I refuse to do laundry on a cruise, and someone is notorious to spill something on their clothes.

I pack 3 swim suits.

I usually changed 2 or 3 times a day. I would get dressed for breakfast and whatever in the morning, change when we went to the pool and then usually put back on the same clothes I had on for breakfast (if DS didn't get something on me, if he did I'd get something different) and then change again for dinner. I'm not a person who worries about over packing though. I like my clothes and I like to wear different things so I just brought a bunch with me.
