Pre-departure Information - Celestyal Cruises

14 The weather in the Mediterranean is mild and pleasant year-round. If you cruise with us during the warmer part of the year, from May through September, light-coloured cotton clothes will help keep you cool. You should also bring swimsuits, if you plan to swim in our pool or at one of the incredible beaches we’ll visit, as well as sunglasses and a hat which, combined with a good sunscreen, will help protect you from the Mediterranean sun. If you intend to use one of the well-equipped gyms on our ships, make sure to bring proper clothes and shoes (but don’t worry about a towel, we’ll provide it). Air-conditioning is strong on the ship and because of the occasional sea breeze in the afternoon, we suggest that you also pack a light jacket or a windbreaker. DRESSING FOR OUR SHORE EXCURSIONS During the summer months, light-coloured cotton or sports clothes that “breathe” will help keep you cool on our excursions. Make sure that you wear comfortable shoes for all excursions. If you plan to visit the beach you’ll need a swimsuit, as well as sunglasses and a hat which, combined with comfortable shoes and a good sunscreen, will help protect you from the brilliant Mediterranean sun. If you will be visiting a religious or pilgrimage site, please dress respectfully in long trousers or a skirt that falls below the knee, and please remember to cover your shoulders. As we sail through autumn and winter, warmer clothing is recommended as temperatures will be cooler. Wind breakers and warm jackets are a good idea. AFTERNOONS We do not permit bathing suits or shorts in the restaurants, but we serve a delicious lunch buffet on our pool deck every day, where you can enter wearing short pants or bermudas. EVENING WEAR Your attire should be Jacket and Tie for the gentlemen and elegant outfit for the ladies. No shorts or bathing suits will be accepted in the indoor restaurants after 6.00pm . DRESS UP On each Celestyal cruise we host several themed nights such as White night, famous Greek night, where passengers are invited to wear blue and white (the colours of the Greek flag). During our 7 night and 4 night cruises there is a Gala night including Captain’s cocktail and ship’s Officers’ presentation, where passengers are suggested to attend in formal dress: a cocktail dress or something smart for the ladies, smart casual attire for the gentlemen. Remember the photographer will be there to capture the moment. Check your daily program for a schedule of all evening events. Contact email: [email protected] What to wear
