What type of clothes does one wear on a cruise? The basics, shorts, skirts, etc. I am assuming but should I bring anything else. We are doing on the Dream in April of 2012 so I have plenty of time to prepare, but I also have a budget to work with. I currently hate my summer clothes, but since I am off from work in the summer I don't worry about it much. When I do go back to work in August I am in an office that is over air conditioned and I get cold all of the time so wear pants and sweaters. I would love to start building a better summer and cruising wardrobe. Any suggestions. I must say I hate shopping and have the hardest time finding clothes. I have a true hour glass shape.
