Cruising is becoming a hugely popular option for those looking for something a little more varied than a traditional destination holiday. With a wide variety of companies and routes to choose from, holidaymakers have more options than ever before and, as a result, cruises have seen a surge in bookings among all age groups.

There is one common problem people encounter when going on a cruise however, and that’s what to pack. With such a massive variety of activities, potential destinations, events and potential weather to think about, many people aren’t really sure exactly what they should be taking with them.

This is particularly true with modern cruises liners that feature everything from swimming pools to fine dining experiences, and often host events with dress codes (such as formal or smart casual). So not only do you need to think about the weather and where you’re going, as well as the activities you might be able to take part in, but you need to think about what you’re going to wear for a formal dinner or a show while on board the ship.

So rather than you cramming your suitcase with outfits for every eventuality, why not follow this great guide from JD Williams, aimed at taking the stress and worry out of what to pack when setting off on a cruise:
