Lots of people consider Christmas in July as the perfect excuse to throw parties and have fun. If that’s the case, where do we sign up? People who celebrate this non-holiday do so in traditional Christmas party style—complete with the winter trappings. But if you find heavy sweaters, an open fire, and calorific eggnog way too warm for July, then a summer-friendly Caribbean cruise theme is what you need.
Get your guests on board with the cruise ship theme by sending out paper or email invitations fashioned as “boarding passes.” Choose from dozens of free online templates or create your own with cruise-related images, like anchors, palm trees, or ocean liners.
Casual dining attire on cruise ships can be a simple polo shirt and slacks for men, and a breezy top and skirt for women. For a brighter affair, ask guests to come in colorful tropical shirts, linen pants, and comfortable sundresses. As the host, you get the privilege of wearing a captain’s hat.
