Proper clothing for a winter cruise depends on your exposure to cold weather. Although some people may be used to harsh winters (e.g. those from the northern east coast of the United States), others may have never experienced a very cold winter (e.g., Hawaii or Florida residents). It is a good idea to prepare for the worst-case scenario because it will be cheaper to buy winter clothes before the cruise than during the cruise. Pack thick jackets and sweaters, winter gloves, scarves, thick socks, winter headgear and thermal underwear (when visiting extreme cold regions such as Greenland). Remember to also pack sunblock, lip balm, moisturizer and sunglasses because the cold weather not only dries your skin, but also creates conditions for severe sunburn.
