What Shall I Wear on a South Pacific Cruise?

A vintage P&O poster
In the 1930s, when P&O put out this poster advertising voyages to the exotic South Pacific, cruising was in its heyday. The rich and the famous enjoyed weeks at sea in an atmosphere that was elegant and luxurious. Being well-dressed for every occasion was de rigeur.
  Nowadays, on P&O cruises in the South Pacific, casual clothes are the order of the day. Shorts, T-shirts and flip-flops are worn on board and often when going ashore.
     For me, part of the fun of planning a cruise is deciding what clothes to take. By sticking to a couple of colours, clothes can be mixed and matched to make a variety of outfits.
   Being cool and comfortable is vital when travelling in the tropics. The most important accessories are a sun hat, a water bottle and sunscreen lotion.
