Clothing and Packing
Your journey is designed with leisure in mind. Dress for comfort and convenience with a wardrobe that is adaptable and allows for layering. Many days are spent outside or in transit. Therefore, during the day, casual, comfortable, cotton clothing is recommended. Occasionally cool weather will require warmer, layered clothing. For the captain's welcome party festive attire is appropriate. Please note that swimsuits and shorts are considered unsuitable attire at mealtimes.
Valet laundry and pressing services are available on board the cruise ship and at the Hotel Danieli for a fee; however, there is no dry-cleaning available on board. Hair curling and clothes irons are not permitted on board the cruise ship.
We recommend that you pack an adequate supply of your prescription medication in its original container to last through your entire journey, together with a copy of your doctor’s prescription or a letter from your health-care provider on office stationery explaining that the medication has been prescribed for you, a list of the generic names of your medication, your travel documents and a change of clothing in your carry-on bag to avoid any inconvenience in the event that your flight or luggage is delayed. No medications are sold on board the cruise ship other than those prescribed and stocked by the ship’s physician.
Following is a list of recommended items to pack for a cruise on the Adriatic Sea:
[*]Casual daytime wear – shorts, slacks, long and short-sleeved shirts
[*]An optional jacket and tie for men
[*]Casually elegant evening wear for ladies
[*]Sunglasses, sunscreen, hat
[*]A light sweater or jacket for higher elevations or a breezy night
[*]Binoculars (7x50 preferably)
[*]Camera, lenses, batteries, memory cards and/or plenty of film
[*]Lightweight, comfortable, sturdy walking shoes that have already been broken-in
[*]Battery-operated travel alarm clock
[*]Rain poncho and collapsible umbrella
[*]Daypack for camera equipment
[*]Sundries and toiletries that may be difficult to find en route
[*]Copies of your travel documents that should be secured in the safe in your ship cabin while traveling.
