If there’s one thing that you don’t want to forget to pack when you go on a cruise, it’s a pair of sunglasses. Not only are they mandatory in a fashion-sense (we’re only half-kidding), they also can really save your eyes. The summer sun can be pretty intense when you’re out on the ocean, and you’re going to want to take in all the sights that you sail past. Trust us, you need a good pair of sunnies. Don’t fret if you don’t already have a go-to pair. Here are a few options of sunglasses that would make excellent cruise accessories.
Don’t be put off by the fact that TAIQX has a bit of a complicated name. These are simple shades that serve a function beyond just looking great. They are definitely stylish, but it’s their weight (or lack thereof) that is the real draw here. You are likely going to want to wear your sunglasses for many hours each day that you’re on a cruise, and heavy glasses will just end up hurting your face or giving you headaches over time. These sunglasses won’t do that. On top of that, they also have non-reflective lenses and are super cheap (seriously, you can snag a pair of TAIQX sunglasses for less than ten bucks).
Costa del Mar
Costa del Mar is a pretty respected brand in the world of sunglasses, and there’s a good reason for that. Their products are made with quality in mind. You definitely pay a premium for these frames, but they are worth it. The Costa del Mar Kiwa is a favorite of cruise fanatics around the world, but many of their models would suit you well out on the seven seas. They fit snugly to your face, something which is always welcome on a cruise, but they still manage to be very comfortable. Our favorite thing about Costa del Mar is that they offer a lifetime warranty that lets you get a new pair for a small fee. That security is really nice to have while you’re traveling.
When it comes to sunglasses, there is no brand out there more well-known that Rayban. When you think of sunglasses, you think of Raybans. While expensive, Raybans are a worthy addition to any traveler’s packing list. They perform great and will keep your eyes from feeling strained after a long day out in the sun, yet they also look right at place when you’re off to lunch at a port city. Newer Raybans are also outfitted with technology that makes them far lighter than before, and that’s always a plus.
Picking out the right sunglasses for a cruise can be as fun experience, so get creative with it! After all, you’re going to want something that looks good in all your vacation selfies, right?
