But first of all, if you’re not an Amazon Prime member yet, I suggest you get yourself at least the 30-day free trial so your items can get to you ASAP.

Dog Tag T-Dance
The Dog Tag T-Dance is always the first T-Dance (daytime party) that you’ll have on the cruise. It’s the first chance to really get to know your fellow cruisers! You’ll be given a military dog tag where you can put different colored stickers on it to show how “available” you are. Red means you’re taken, green means you’re fully available, and yellow means “ask first.” And everyone is going to be dressed in their military best. So here are a few ideas for you to dress to impress! (Just click on each pic to be taken to its Amazon page)

“There’s a magical place deep in the Caribbean where all that sparkles it not just gold, but the inhabitants themselves, desired by all and found by few. Take a journey to Treasure Island tonight where jewels come to life, pirates prowl, otherworldly creatures shine, and all that glitters might surprise you. We invite you to come as bejeweled sparkling treasure, trolling thieves, glowing magical creatures, or swashbuckling scalawags. Diamonds in the rough welcome of course.”
“Change is rousing the elements in unexpected ways and tonight we bring them together in musical harmony. Fire, Water, Wind, and Earth come to life on our dance floor for a celebration of all that Mother Earth has to offer, with a little visual fun. Feel the heat of the night and accessorize into the spirit to bring these forces to life. Think fiery body paint, sea creatures or gods, billowy feathers, heavy metals, and anything else elemental. Or just come as one of Greta’s friendly supporters.

“Everyone’s a kid again when we transform Studio B into a high-energy playground of pure silliness, music, lights, and a sea of lasers. Fast, bouncy, candy fun reigns with eye-popping decor and a room full of upbeat progressive music with non-stop visual surprises. Bright as day is the way to go here as we take you deeper into the night at a party that will leave you breathless with smiles.”
The description is a little vague but it sounds like being BRIGHT and COLORFUL is the way to go. So here are some glow accessories that will be great for this theme.
