Packing sundresses, maxi dresses, or rompers for meals is a simple solution. They're lightweight and comfy, and they don't take up much room. You're ready to go with a pair of sandals or wedges. A casual button-down, jeans, and a pair of white or black shoes are often appropriate for "resort-style" for men. Dress codes at most hotels include slacks or shorts for men, but a tee shirt or short-sleeved button-up is usually acceptable as well.
In terms of accessories, bring a few shades of blue: blue sunglasses, blue bracelet, and blue necklace. These will look good with anything and add some color to your wardrobe. Also consider bringing a red lip gloss or two; these make great conversation starters with other travelers. If you get tired of the basic colors, try mixing patterns. Pack a couple of bright prints or solid colors for an eclectic look.
The key to packing light is having only what you need - no more, no less. If you end up bringing too many items, you can buy things in Mexico. And if you forget something important, it's not like you can't order another one!
It should be packed.
CODE DRESS The resort is informal during the day and exquisite at night. While the sun is shining, shorts, tank tops, swimsuits, short-sleeved shirts, sundresses, and light pants are ideal. At night, guests can dress up or down depending on their mood. Dinner jackets are required for some evening functions, but otherwise casual attire is fine.
BICYCLES You can rent bicycles at the front gate of the property for $10 per hour or $50 per day.
TAXI If you don't want to drive, there are also free cab rides available from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. at the front gate every 15 minutes. There is a time limit if you plan to use this service often.
PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION The town center is a five-minute walk from the property. A taxi from the airport to the town center will cost about $15. The resort has its own shuttle service that takes guests between the airport and the hotel for $20 per person. The resort's car rental agency is located in the same building as the shuttle bus so one doesn't need to be booked separately.
RESERVATIONS ARE NOT REQUIRED But it's recommended to make a reservation if you're planning to attend any special events or dinners at the property.
At five-star resort restaurants, a dress, skirt, or pants with sandals is fashionable. A hat or visor, sunglasses, and sunscreen are required, as is a beach bag to transport items to the pool and/or beach.
However, for land-based adventures, resort casual implies foregoing the swimming suit. For starters, it's probably too hot. Shorts and t-shirts are appropriate for shopping on Grenada's spice island or visiting the bazaar at Resorts World Bimini in the Bahamas. On holiday beaches around the world, you'll see many people wearing shorts and a T-shirt. You can dress up the look with a nice shirt for men or women.
For those interested in dressing more formally, we recommend wearing closed-toed shoes, such as sneakers or sandals. Dress pants or shorts are good options, as are linen or cotton shirts. Don't forget to wear a name tag or some other form of identification if you work as a volunteer or staff member at a resort.
Casual clothing is most commonly seen in resorts but it is also popular with beachgoers all over the world. If you go to a private beach, you may want to bring something more formal because even though it's not recommended to swim fully clothed, people do it all the time!
In conclusion, casual resort attire means short sleeves and trousers. Formal clothes are recommended when attending events or parties because you don't want to be judged by your appearance.
What to dress and bring:
Sundresses or lightweight slacks and a summer top are appropriate for women, while polo shirts, button-front, short-sleeved shirts, and khakis are appropriate for males. Some ship dining rooms may prohibit shorts for dinner and other evening activities; verify your cruise line's evening attire policies before packing, just in case.
If you plan to spend most of your time on board exercising or relaxing by the pool, then it isn't necessary to wear a suit. If you want to go out on the town at night, be sure to bring something elegant but not too formal. A nice dress or skirt and some high-heeled shoes will always get a positive response from people who see you walking down the street.
Sunscreen, a hat, sunglasses, and insect repellent are essential for enjoying a cruise in the Caribbean. You should also bring layers of clothing, especially if you plan to visit any hot spots after dark. In addition, pack toiletries because there are no free bathrooms on ships, and sea days can be very rough. Finally, don't forget your passport and money belt with cash and credit cards inside their respective pockets.
Cruise ships have different rules regarding luggage. Some allow only small bags, such as roller bags or backpack carriers; others require that passengers check in large items such as cars or trucks. Find out what type of luggage of size ships use so that you know what to expect when you arrive at your destination.
