What to Pack for a European River Cruise
River cruises are much more casual with more excursions than the usual ocean cruises so you can pack a lot less, and differently. Here’s some tips but not by any means an exclusive list- we’ll cover some general tips in a later blog.
1. If it is in the shoulder season, think layers rather than bulky jackets and coats. That way each sweater or top can do double duty. Do bring a hat and gloves.
2. Ladies, pack one or two dressier tops and pair of slacks or skirt. Leave your cocktail dresses and gowns at home. Gentlemen, you get the idea. No tuxes please or ties required unless you want to pack one as it takes little space. Exception: if you are opting for an excursion to the opera, then a dressy outfit may be required.
