1 - Pair of sneakers - a necessity for some shore excursions
? - Shorts, shirts, socks, jeans, etc. - number will depend on your cruise length
Extra bathing suit (they typically don't dry overnight, so if you don't have to put on a wet suit bring an extra)
If you want to dress up for the "Dress-Up or Not Night" it's your call. (see Norwegian's recommendations below)
"When it comes to what to wear, you can go resort casual or get decked-out and look your best - it’s your call. That’s the freedom of Freestyle Cruising.
We even have special “Dress-Up or Not Night.” It’s the perfect opportunity to get your portrait taken with your family, that special someone or even with the
ship’s Captain. Dress cruise casual anytime during the day, in the buffet and in most specialty restaurants. For women, it includes summer and casual dresses,
skirts, regular or capri pants, shorts, jeans and tops. Khakis, jeans, shorts and casual shirts are fine for men. Swimwear is acceptable at the buffet and outdoor
restaurant, but a shirt or a cover-up and footwear are required. Cruise casual is also allowed day and night on embarkation day. Wear smart casual if you are eating
dinner in the aft main dining room (our more formal dining room) and in Le Bistro on cruises longer than five days. For women, it includes slacks or jeans, dresses,
skirts and tops. For men, it’s jeans or slacks with a collared shirt and closed-toed shoes. Traditional Bermuda shorts along with long socks, loafers and a blazer
are all acceptable on a Bermuda cruise. We want you to be comfortable, but tank tops for men, flip flops, baseball caps, visors and jeans that are overly faded,
with holes or tears and worn below the hips are not permitted in main dining rooms or specialty restaurants. Kids 12 and under are welcome to wear nice shorts in
all our restaurants."
* General rule when it comes to clothing: Everyone packs too much! (especially on their first cruise)
* Keep in mind also that Laundry Services services are available onboard all Norwegian ships for a fee. Dry cleaning is not available.
