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.

Adonia back with P&O

By Gemma Coles

 It doesn’t seem that long ago when we said goodbye to the P&O Adonia. P&O Adonia left the fleet in 2015 with much sadness to lots of passengers. The ship went to Fathom Cruises which is a line dedicated to volunteer tourism. Guests were taken to locations such as the Dominican Republic to help teach English or build water filtration systems to help with poorer countries. Carnival Group have now announced that after an upgrade to the ship, with the addition of a new rest...

Small ships are wanted!!

By Neil Holmes

Neil Holmes's blog

P&O have announced that their small ship Adonia is to return to their 2017/2018 season. The ship was much loved by the P&O faithful and when she left the fleet to help with humanitarian work overseas there was a big hole to fill as many of the P&O fleet are larger ships and P&O were losing some of their passengers to cruise & Maritime and Fred Olsen.From June 2017 she will start Mediterranean, round Britain and even an Iceland sailing. The smaller more interesting ports w...
