What I've noticed is that
1. I was able to select one dominant colour for sandals to match all my daytime outfits and 2 pairs of shoes/sandals for all evening wear.
2. You will be able to leave many clothing items behind if you work with colours and mix n'match.
3. You don't have to think about/decide what you will wear each day as it's written down for you (this assumes that the weather will be consistent throughout the cruise, in which case you add a cardy) . This is good for those who like the discipline involved....it's not for everyone.
4. It is a lot of fun and is creative
5. You see in an instant what you may neen to focus on/ purchase for the current or following cruise.
6. Apart from washing smalls, you can avoid using the laundry.
Perhaps we can share our cruise wardbrobe planning routines here? It could be useful to first-time cruisers. I admit I didn't have much of an idea on our first.
