Cruise Packing List for Womencruise packing list for women on a cruise

An exemplary cruise ship packing list for women on a cruise vacation - the "ladies style" - such a list could be merely a suggestion, due to the uniqueness of each ship vacation - destination, shore excursions (land tours), line and ship, the duration of the voyages, the  season you've chosen to travel, the activities you intend to participate in, the kind of person you are, etc.

And when talking about women, well, there are certain types of women, but while "predictable" is definitely a male adjective, "unique" is totally female!

Here are some guidelines about the packing for a standard cruise ship travel - clothing and footwear for women, according to the cruise ship dress code requirements.
