I must admit that we tend to dress in the evening as we would if we were going with friends to a good class restaurant. I am not sure of your full itinerary but I would guess at 4 formal nights and remember that dry cleaning, dress suit jackets for instance, is often a lot cheaper and more convenient on board than it is at home.

Depends what you mean by 'normal dining'. There are both 'informal':jacket or tie required and 'casual':smart casual. We had 4 'formal' nights on a 28 night cruise so I would guess it wont be more than that. Doug Curran.

Fred.Olsen Cruise Lines will send you a programme of "dress" for dinner with your tickets. Generally speaking, there are two "formal" nights per week when most men wear dinner jackets. The rest of the evenings tend to be "informal" where a jacket & tie or a long-sleeved shirt and tie will suffice. On the first and last nights of the cruise the dress is casual. In the midst of all this there are "theme" nights eg tropical, Western, red/white/blue etc. If, however, you wish to avoid "dressingup" you can always eat in the Palms Cafe where the dress is casual. It is a pity for, in my view, formal dining is a major part of cruising. Bon voyage.
