No, but you could be the odd one out if you have dinner in the main restaurant. A few men wear suits, but in the main they wear a tux. Nearly all the women wear long or shorter evening dresses - it looks really lovely and elegant, well worth the dressing up. You could always dine in one of the other restaurants on the formal nights.

Personally having been on the QE2 I would say you need to dress up in the evenings. Even if it's only a smart dress or a skirt and dressy blouse/top you need to look smart. On the formal evenings most women wore ball gowns or at least a very pretty formal dress (think weddings and your on the right track) At the time I was only 26 and thus found it difficult on the what to wear front but just invested in some dress and a few ball gowns (try TK Maxx they have stores throughout most of the UK, and you could nab yourself a gown for around £40-60 - bargain!!) We also have our 18month old with us at the time so it was quite amusing to see my husband in a tux, me in a gown pushing a pram onboard!! But Cunard is a glamourous line so you should make the effort (or feel a little out of place) In saying that if you were to choose to eat each evening in the buffet style restaurant I think that's less formal but then you're paying the money so you should eat in the restaurants as the food and service is out of this world.

Dean Michaelides's blog

I recently read an article from a former cruise ship employee. He was explaining that having sex, taking drugs and making friends in the onboard sex dungeon was a regular occurrence on board one Caribbean cruise liner. Despite having sex with the clients being a sackable offence the staff would have no qualms getting involved. He also mentioned that the riskier the better so as well as having sex in the staff decks they would like to push the boundaries on the unpopulated decks.It wasn’...

Piraeus Athens Gateway Or ...

By Camilla Edwards

Camilla Edwards's blog

Continuing my look at European ports this week I thought I`d choose Piraeus, the port for the Greek capital Athens.Athens is probably most famous for the Acropolis, topped by the Parthenon Temple, and the National Museum. It is a bustling, busy city with lots to do and a place I have visited several times. It has lots of really good hotels, restaurants and bars as well as its history. Many cruise ships now visit Athens using Piraeus as the anchor port.The port sits about 7 miles from the city...
