Dress Code

With Freestyle Cruising, you're pretty much welcome to wear whatever, whenever. Their philosophy is "resort casual" and with the widest range of dining venues, tons of entertainment options and bars & lounges, you'll find there are places for your style all over our ships, day and night.

Daytime, it's basically all fine since they know you're probably headed to the pool or out for a fun Shore Excursion. Casual shorts, jeans, tops and sundresses are welcome everywhere. You can even wear your swimsuit to the poolside grill or the buffet.

Resort casual dress gets you into every venue at night too. Some people like to add a jacket, or when celebrating a special occasion, get all decked out. This too is welcome everywhere. And if you're tired from a long fun day and just want to wear shorts, the buffet is the place for a casual dinner. Some people prefer nice jeans. They're welcome in many of the restaurants as well, but not in all. It's your holiday, so dress comfortably, and you'll find a venue that suits your style.

Since all suitcases are collected the night before you return to port, don't forget to bring an overnight bag packed with a change of clothes, prescriptions and need-to-have items. Thanks to Freestyle Disembarkation, you'll have time on your final morning on board for breakfast and some last minute sunbathing or even a workout.
