Welcome to Cruise Style, where we’ll be blogging about our favourite fashion finds, discovering what’s best in beauty and tracking down the top travel gadgets and gizmos. We’ll also be spotlighting our favourites in each issue of Cruise International magazine and reviewing a selection of cruise essentials.

Every leading fashion house has its cruise or resort collections ideally primed for those lucky holiday makers jetting off to warmer climes as the rest of us are bundled up back in Blighty – we’ll aim to bring you these pre-season lines, and much more. From comfortable yet stylish shoes perfect for enthusiastic sightseers, to practical winter warming wear ideal for adventurous explorers, a cruise holiday can require a wide range of indispensable gear, so we’ll hunt down the hottest products we can find, from binoculars to beachwear and sunglasses to suitcases.

Seasoned jetsetters will be experienced in what to pack for every destination, but not all our readers have cruised before, so we’ll also be asking for input and insight from our regular writers. And if you have a question or suggestion, whether it’s “what are the best travel speakers?” or “which waterproof mascaras really work?”, we shall endeavour to research and reveal an answer for you.
