Viscata Espadrilles on board made in Spain

Cruise season is back: here are the perfect shoes to help you sail through your next vacation

All aboard. It looks like cruises are finally back. After 18 months in dock, these beautiful ships are once again starting to set sail regularly. American Cruise Lines led the charge back in March when their first post-Covid voyage headed out from Florida in search of sun and fun.  Since then, Crystal Cruises headed out to the Bahamas in the summer, Norwegian Jade began cruising around the Greek islands. And the 2022 itinerary for Viking Cruises is almost sold out. Ports across the Caribbean, America, Europe and the Far East are looking to welcome guests in a covid-free environment where you're only ever a short sail away from your next exotic destination.

But it might be a slightly different kind of cruise this year. Hygiene (which is always an important issue on board a cruise ship) will be more stringent than ever.  Reduced capacity will mean more space and less crowds at the bar.  There will be more outdoor activities, more ventilation and more al fresco dining.  All of which translates into a less crowded, more relaxed cruise experience.

A cruise is an unusual type of holiday and with all that variety, you could be tempted to pack for every occasion. You’ll need something informal for hanging out by the pool; something casual and comfortable for walking around the ports that you’ll visit along the way.  There will be a variety of informal evenings where you’ll want to look effortlessly chic.  And then those fancy moments when you’re all dressed up for the Captain’s table, the glam rags are on and you’ll want to look your dazzling best.  You might even want something special for stepping out on the dancefloor and throwing some shapes into the early hours of the morning. Whatever you’re after, Viscata espadrilles are the ideal shoes to set your spirit free on your cruising vacation. 

So, whether you’re heading out for a casual circuit of the Greek islands or flitting around the Caribbean in search of rum shacks and reggae, our huge range of comfortable, versatile styles and colors mean we have the shoes for every occasion.
