Travel Sense
Keep traveler's checks, credit cards, prescription medicines, a spare set of glasses or contact lenses and your travel documents in your carry-on bags. You may want to note your credit card numbers and keep them in a separate place. Be sure you have enough prescription medicine to last your entire trip. Keep a card in your wallet listing your doctor's name, address and telephone number.

Wear Comfortable Shoes
Whether on deck or in port! Rubber soled shoes allow for better traction on deck in misty weather. Comfortable shoes are a must.

Think Light!
We’ll be in the tropics… a light sweater, windbreaker, jacket or raincoat may be desired for breezy evenings on deck and/or in the air conditioning.

Daily programs will be delivered to your stateroom announcing the suggested dress for the evenings. A breakdown is featured below.
