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.

 We have just returned from what was an absolute winter paradise.
