On RCI in 2017 we didn't bother but did last year if only for some nice photos. Sadly being ex-pats we are the forgotten relations for weddings etc. So this is an occasion for us as a family to get some decent photos. After dinner I took off the DJ and the tie.

Going again this Friday and I'll take the suit as I have space in the car. This summer in the Caribbean I certainly won't be taking a suit as won't have space for it on the flight.

Also if you do want to do it the men might be able to rent a suit onboard but best to go early in the cruise if you are going down that road.

Thanks
On formal nights you only have to dress up if you want to use the main dining room and certain bars - they will tell you which ones you can/cannot use on those nights.

You can use the buffet on any evening - you don't need to be in formal wear to use it even on formal nights.

With regards to black and white night you dont have to stick to that - I dont have anything black so I will just wear my posh frocks on formal night - mine are mostly pink etc!

We actually love dressing up for dinner - and will dress up semi-formal for the main dining room.
Hubby will wear smart jeans and a polo shirt on non-formal nights - he wears this in all the restaurants.
I love wearing a dress and heels so I take every opportunity to do so!

IF we go to the buffet I will wear jeans and a nice top etc.

We find that most people dress smartly for dinner - especially on P&O.
Some of the cruises aimed at the americans are less formal in the evening.

I find it frustrating if people turn up scruffy for dinner but at the same time i dont let it affect my holiday!

Enjoy your cruise!

I had this dilemma for our cruise which is next month. I chose P&O for the ports Norway and the Ffjords , and because the dates fitted in. Dressing up isn't really our thing, but DH had said he'll take a suit with shirt and tie and proper shoes in case we decide we want to go to one of the formal nights. I have a nice dress I bought years ago and have only worn a handful of times, and I've just ordered a pashmina. Not sure if I'll be able to wear heels as I've hurt my leg, so it may be my sparkly flip flop type sandals.
I've also ordered some black palazzo style pants I could wear with a nice top.

We do like to dress smart casual when we go out, but dinner suits and cocktail dresses don't feature. If we go to one formal night and find it too stuffy we won't bother with the second night.

See I was worried as i wore leggings, boots and a fancy top and hubby was jeans and top to the casual and I thought Id be dressed down but didnt feel it when we were out. Was exactly what it wear if I was going out for night at pub etc
P&o is seen as stuffy more cos its majorly over 50s but didnt find it that bad.
Formal -dress and nice shoes and suit is all you need. Basically wedding.

Some have proper gowns and tux but not many.

Only thing thats pants is being asked to leave if your not dressed up enough as your then limited

We are both over 50😁, well I'm 56 and hubby will have just turned 59 before our cruise. We looked at Fred Olsen cruises originally as they go from Liverpool, but decided the age demographic was perhaps too old for us.
I'm happy with a mix of all ages, I guess as it's not school holidays there won't be so many families with school age children on this one. Our kids are grown up so that suits us now 😀

I enjoy the formal nights as I feel its part of the holiday. I am fortunate in having a national dress to wear rather than DJ. I do go to a number of formal evenings as part of my normal life and its quite easy to just get out the kilt.

We also really enjoy dressing up as we dont get to do it often
