Celebrity is a 5* line so formal does mean in the main dining rooms & as a rule people who book Celebrity do so BECAUSE they have a dress standard. Matalan had a perfectly respectable tuxedo on sale at Xmas for forty quid, so it need not cost mega bucks to 'join the party'. Go for it & I guarantee you will enjoy it.

If you stated Ship & cruise Line you would get a exact response. If you choose to eat in the self service restaurant there is no need to adhere to the dress code. The second sitting is for the Main Dining Room only. If you choose a 'paying' restaurant you book a time to suit yourself. Formal only means 'suited & booted' it's not powdered wigs & frock coats so don't be concerned if this is your first time. Just enjoy it.

My husband and I love dressing up for formal nights but have noticed that many Americans don't, so on Princess it seems that anything seems to go as long as gents wear long trousers and not shorts.

Sorry... missing information ... Celebrity Solstice, cant find out exact details from previous cruisers about this as ship has not yet been built, so there are no reviewers, but I guess the same rules will apply as the other Celebrity fleet.

As far as P & O Cruises are concerned you are expected to conform to the dress code of the day. However, dressing up is part of the fun and excitement. If you do not want this then you should seek a cruise that is informal. Failure to take part could cause annoyance to the other guests who have enjoyed so doing.

MUSICAS PORTS OF CALL.

By Nicola Milligan

Last time I told you all about the ship so this week we will talk about the reason we actually chose this cruise, it’s itinerary. I have been to Venice a few times now but the sail away never loses it’s excitement for me. When standing on deck I still get goose bumps as this massive ship glides slowly past all the major sights of this charming city. So close you can see into windows and see the faces of the lovers sailing on the romantic Gondola rides. It is unbelievable at how c...

How Fred Olsen compares

By Charlene Thackeray

Charlene Thackeray's blog

We are recently back from our first Fred Olsen cruise.Whilst this is the smallest ship we have been on as a family there were lots of great things and a few not so great things for us. We knew there would not be much for Charlie on board however he had a great time with all his new friends from the Entertainments team. I can honestly say the entertainment team were really friendly and put on some great shows. I loved how the stage rose in the Neptune lounge making it a great area for lots of ...
