Not when we were on her last year (going again 30th October) However,tuxedos are such good value-M&S,Matalan,Asda and of course E-Bay. My husband bought a lovely lightweight,high wool content dress suit at our local menswear shop£99. Wearing it 4 or 6 times each year makes it much cheaper than hiring. Have a lovely,happy cruise.

Thanks for your reply. We're only allowed 20kg hold luggage on our flight, and obviously this needs to include a mixture of formal, semi-formal and casual clothes if we're to attend the formal nights. So due to luggage restrictions we may have to refrain from attending the formal nights unless we can hire.

No you cannot hire onboard. you will be able to take 23kg luggage, and 5kg hold luggage. if you decide not to go to the formal nights, you will have to dine in the buffet restaurant as the coral restaurant will be for those passengers in formal attire.

Thanks for confirming the hold baggage allowance is 23kg. I'm sure the flight information I had from my travel agency said 20kg hold + 5kg hand luggage, in fact it stated the allowance was 25kg so I assume it was 20 + 5. However I have just rang P&O themselves and they confirmed it is 23kg baggage and 5kg hand luggage. That helps me a lot with what I'll be taking.

What is the dress code?

By Rosie Taylor

This is a question that comes up quite a lot when deciding which cruise to book.It really does depend on the cruise line.The general rule is 2 formal nights per week.How formal is formal? Well, this is a good question because recently a customer of mine came home from a cruise with Royal Caribbean and even on the formal nights some people where really casual. Trousers and polo shirts. Not even a shirt and tie!It seems that Royal Caribbean have really relaxed the dress code.Celebrity cruises ...

P&O Cruises recently announced that that would be building a 9th ship to join the P&O Fleet in 2020. This comes only two years after the Britannia was released and I am pleased to say that after quite a few problems she has become a firm favourite in the P&O Fleet.Hopefully P&O will take forward the feedback on Britannia but we are yet to see what this new ship will look like; all P&O have said is that she will be 180,000 Gross tons and carry 5,200 Guests. This is the larg...

It is amazing how many guest I have spoken to over the last few weeks that have booked excursions through the cruise liner, which I may add are quite expensive. Cruise liners make a lot of money selling excursions at a hefty premium, but many people are happy to pay the extra because booking with the ship is the easy option and they have the comfort of knowing the captain will not leave port until everyone on his ships tours is back on board. I totally understand the reasons behind this but b...
