At the very least...make sure you have a light jacket with a hood...as once the ship sales out of the port and goes to open water...the wind definitely picks up quickly and if it's cool...you will need something if you are a deck person like I am!
Thanks, I hadn't thought about not getting luggage in time for dinner! I did plan to pack some extra clothes in my carryon though

One time I saw a guy wear cut-off jean shorts to dinner.

Do people really walk around the ship wearing their swimsuits all day? I've never cruised before but I've seen pictures of the pools and they all look so tiny. Are they really such a big draw for people that they spend all day in their suits? Not judging or anything, just a little surprised.

We spent almost all of our first day, until time for dinner at the pool. We rode the Aquaduck a ton, and the kids played in the pool.

I am kidding.
Actually, doing something silly like that might actually get me to buy the boarding photo! We always seem to look like a disheveled mess in those photos.

Same with us! That is our favorite time. Plenty of rides on the Aqua Duck indeed.

And yes, people do hang poolside all day. The atmosphere and such are fantastic! One of our favorite parts of the cruise is the pool-time right when you board! Not to mention the embarkation party once you set sail. It is an absolutely incredible time. Cannot wait to get back!
