Do cruise ships get cold at night?

thermostatWell, this is a subjective answer depending on your natural body temperature, but ships, for the most part, are pretty regulated in temperature, which would be similar to that of an office building.

For bedding, most cruise lines have at minimum, a flat sheet and a duvet – and possibly another blanket in between. 

Sleeping temperature has never been an issue for us, even though I (male) like to sleep in a warmer room versus my wife who prefers a colder room. 

In order to account for temperature fluctuations, packing clothing which can be layered is smart.

Some may prefer to have a light sweater during the evening entertainment, even when sailing in a warm destination, or, for cooler destinations, packing a heavier coat may be advisable if you want to spend time out on your balcony, watching the stars. 

The temperature in cabins can sometimes run warmer than public areas, so it might be wise to take a small battery-operated fan if you typically run hot when sleeping.
