Here are some of the best daytime cruise wear pieces for women with style. Try nautical clothing like tops, sweaters, outfits, and cute tropical dresses for hanging out at the Pool or roaming the decks.
Online stores have some of the best daytime cruise wear for women with style. Check out nautical clothing like tops, sweaters, jackets, and outfits. Lots of gals look good in tropical dresses while lounging around on the pool deck, buffing their booties at the buffet, or just hanging around the ship.
Is it possible that cruise gals are divided into two categories? One group likes to wear clothes. The other group likes to lounge around the pool in bikinis, show their belly rings, and wear sequins in all the wrong places.
Well, this article is about Boomer Chicks, the gals in the first group. Actually, this is about Boomer Chicks who want nautical daytime cruise wear that looks chic, can be worn on land (during summer), and is affordable. This is about that group of women who are still in the groove; still know how to party, and still want to be hip; but who know that they will look better in a one-piece bathing suit or a cute outfit that covers their derrieres or their tummies.
Nautical clothing is perfect for this type of woman; well, at least for the daytime activities. After-dark cruising usually requires something a little less tomboy.
The basic boaty look consists of blue and white, with cute bright accents to give it some pop. Red, white, and blue is a classic combination. Black, black with white trim (tipping or piping), and black-and-white accents work for gals who don’t love navy blue.
Don’t laugh, but Old Navy (appropriately) has good tees and things for cruises - and for travel in general. And, thankfully, most of their stuff is inexpensive enough so that no woman needs to constantly worry about dripping cocktail sauce or spilling a rum and coke on it. Yo ho ho. Just throw the shirt away if it gets too skeezy.

Cruise Wear from Nordstrom.com
I grew up in Seattle, so I love shopping at Nordstrom's. It's our local store, but I like to browse online. I'm much happier when I can try a garment on in the privacy of my own room, with the door locked, so no one will laugh. And, I have no problem sending everything back if necessary. That's why companies give you a sticky return label. (article continues)
