What to wear on a cruise

We want to make sure you are always prepared when cruising with MSC. Below are some suggestions to make sure you pack appropriate clothing
for the various activities you will undertake during your cruise.

Everyday life

For everyday life on board, casual wear is recommended. We also recommend you bring a pullover or shawl to help with the changes in temperature between the air-conditioned interior of the ship and the deck areas

Informal evenings

For informal evenings, we recommend summery dresses for women and a lightweight jacket for men

Gala evenings

For Gala evenings, the dress code is more formal. We suggest a tuxedo, dinner jacket, or dark suit and tie for men and a dressy outfit, formal gown, or cocktail dress for women.

Theme parties

We organise various daytime and evening Theme Parties on board. You may wish to bring 60s and 70s floral gear for the Flower Glory Party, white clothing for the White Party, and something green, white and red for the our MSC Little Italy entertainment

Sport lovers

For sports lovers, gym shoes and tracksuit are must-haves when using our cutting-edge gym and attending yoga and dance courses, where available

Northern Europe cruises

For cruises sailing towards the Svalbard islands and Polar areas, please ensure you have adequate polar clothing.

Shore Excursions

For shore excursions, which may include visits to religious sites, we advise that appropriate clothing be worn (covered knees and shoulders).
