What not to wear on a cruise
Cruising has rediscovered its incredibly glamorous and romantic side - but you've got to look the part
If you think cruises are strictly for the blue-rinse set and the odd newlywed couple, you could be missing out on a lot of fun. With exotic destinations, luxury cabins and gourmet food on offer, many younger travellers are discovering that cruising can be cool.
It could be time, in other words, to rediscover the air of glamour that the first ocean liners had by the crate-load. But if you do, you'd better look the part. No polyester dress shirts, floral head scarfs or - the latest offence - mankinis, for a start, please. Here's our fun guide to looking nautical but nice on board.
