Cruises allow its passengers to easily visit as many destinations as possible. And while this is one of the many reasons people choose to go on cruises, its hard to streamline a packing list when one day alone could call for several outfit changes.

Look no further! We have put together ten easy, breezy cruise outfit ideas that are vacation-ready. So sit back, relax and scroll on!  

Cruise Outfit Ideas – Spring/Summer 

These ideas are particularly useful for Mediterranean and Caribbean cruises. They keep warm weather and adventure-filled activities in the sun in mind.


Shorts are very expendable. Wear them to the pool, to the gym, to sleep on hot nights, and for excursions. If you don’t wear shorts very often, feel free to substitute them with capri pants – just as chic! 

Linen Pants/Linen Jumpsuits

As far as cute cruise outfit ideas go, nothing is more fashion-forward and comfortable as linen pants. Made of light-weight material, these pants can be worn during the day or dressed up for evening events. 

Feeling adventurous? Pack a linen jumpsuit!
