6) Pack without stress, shame, or hesitation
Want to live in leisurewear? Rock that tank top all week, my friend (but bring a couple of nice outfits for dinner). If you’re a serial over-packer but know how to make it all fit Tetris-style in your interior cabin, bring a different outfit for every time of day. Oh, and if you’ve been dying to try on that ridiculously loud shirt, painfully tight swimsuit, or amazingly gaudy jacket, a cruise ship full of complete strangers is the best place to give it a shot.
Looking for a temporary escape from the everyday without all the stress of a complicated trip? The sea beckons! Solo vacays are cool, and family trips are great, but there’s nothing as sweet as quality time with your besties. Whether you need a fresh perspective, a blast from the past, or a reminder of you and friends’ unshakeable bonds, a friends cruise is the perfect mix of convenient, affordable, fun-loving, and freeing. You can’t say no to that.
