Cruise season is upon us and it’s time to up your eyewear game. We’ve created this blog so that you can find the best cruise eyewear for your travels. Whether you’ve booked a luxury Caribbean cruise, an Italian coastline adventure, a swanky trip to the French Riviera, or you’re getting glam and hitting up the boat parties in Ibiza, there’s the perfect pair of sunnies to complete your look.
Here are some of the best sunglasses to set sail in, with something to suit every style, every destination, and every budget…
A luxury cruise calls for luxury cruise eyewear to match. If you’re looking to splash the cash on something that will elevate your wardrobe for many years to come, we think the Bvlgari BV8241KB frames are a fantastic investment. Designer shades like this one can transform an outfit instantly, adding $$$ to your look without having to get kitted in high fashion labels from head to toe.
Instead, you can achieve the same level of glamour with a carefully considered accessory. These are available in 3 different colours, but we think the all-black option is the most versatile.
Plus, the Bvlgari BV8241KB shades come with polarised lenses which can deliver added protection from the sun’s harmful UV rays, while also minimising problems with glare and water reflection!
These brown sunglasses from our budget cruise eyewear range come with polarised lenses too – for a fraction of the cost! If you’re in the market for something fun and affordable, while still having outstanding UV protection and glare reduction, the #totallook P9006 frames are a must for your suitcase!
Classic and elegant in both colour and design, these shades will look great with anything in your wardrobe – taking you from the yacht deck to poolside to a private beach.
Maui Jim Mariposa
The Maui Jim Mariposa sunglasses are totally cruise-ready. The perfect match for your cruisewear neutrals, you can style this with your yacht deck best. With a polarised dual mirror lens, a horn rimmed frame design, elegant temples, and a smooth acetate/plastic finish, this style of cruise eyewear offers both casual and dressy appeal – meaning you can wear it with your sailing shorts as well as your sundress.
We also love these frames from Maui Jim because they look just as good on land, so you’ll get plenty of wear out of them this summer.
Ray-Ban RB8247 ROUND
Heading to the Caribbean anyone? Then you need to get your hands on a pair of mirrored sunglasses to keep your eyes in check. Mirrored lenses make the best cruise eyewear because they help to reflect light away from the eyes, with blue mirrors specifically targeting harmful blue light.
Sun-soaked destinations like the Caribbean islands are often drenched in blue light rays, so these Ray-Ban RB8247 ROUND sunglasses are a sailing essential. On deck or on land, you’ll have optimum protection for better eye health.
Miu Miu MU 01XS
Ultra glam, these Miu Miu MU 01XS sunglasses are perfect for a European cruise in the shoulder season when the weather is a little less unpredictable. Complete with a grey lens, this designer eyewear style is a great match for your finest cruise wear while giving you excellent protection on both sunny and cloudy days.
But the best thing about these sunglasses? The cute chain detail that hangs from the temples, creating a unique look that’s not your typical cruise eyewear.
Jonathan Paul Fitovers Timeless
The Jonathan Paul Fitovers Timeless sunglasses come in a classic sailing white. Wear with your favourite white linen dress or trouser co-ord and style with a straw hat for that classy 5 star yacht holiday look.
The Polarvue™ Grey lenses ensure maximum glare reduction and UV protection so you can sunbathe away. The plastic frame also adds a retro edge to your ensemble (so Charlie’s Angels) and the case and cleaning cloth make it easy to clean and store on the go.
