Some are rather formal, others are quite casual. It will tell you on the company brochures. Either way you will love it.

Greetings. I will be traveling on the Queen Mary 2 transatlantic (my first ever cruise) and would appreciate some helpful advise. 1.Can food from the main menu be ordered directly to my suite (room service), and/or what are the dining options providing a more casual experience? 2. Once arrived at my final destination what is the best time to avoid jostling and overcrowded baggage claims? 3. Are smart blue jeans/trainers permitted? 4. Is there a golf driving range on board? 5. How much, who & when should one tip? Many Thanks from an anxious traveller.

Miller is correct. The brochures will give a good indication into what sort of dress code per cruise. Some are decided on which particular part of the ship you are in. I.E if you are paying to go to the more exclusive restaurants on board, then they will probably expect a higher dress code. If all else fails, pick a couple of cruises you are interested in and post them on here. There are people on this site that will cover nearly every ship, so someone will be able to help. I always find that most ships will accept a nice frock and a nice suit rather than a tux and cocktail dress .

Hello Mr Montgomery of Camberley. Don't realy understand why your question is in this section. Why don't you rewrite it as a question of your own under the 'Answers' tab. You may wish to say which direction you are sailing, as it will have some bearing on your baggage question. Also when (what part of the day) you wish to wear your smart jeans and trainers. Your dining arrangements will also have a bearing on your room service. Otherwise, questions 1), 3), 4) and 5) are all answered in the brochure. If you are sailing on 26 June I will gladly buy you a pint at lunchtime in the Golden Lio.

By Richard Smith

 I was shocked at the end of last week when I started to hear reports that The River Cruise Line could cease trading.I have personally sailed with The River Cruise Line in the past and had a great experience doing so. I think that they offer very good value for money and offer a product that can cost a lot less to book than some of their more luxurious rivals.Unfortunately Diamond Shortbreak Holidays Ltd who were the parent company of The River Cruise Line announced that they had to go i...

Celebrity Edge is on its Way

By Robin Clarke

Robin Clarke's blog

So the brand new Celebrity Edge has now gone on sale for her maiden voyage on the 16th of December starting her Caribbean voyages where she will be based in Fort Lauderdale. This ship is like no other at sea with so many fantastic new amenities on-board such as the new infinite balconies which even I was blown away by this. The balcony itself is now within the cabin and has a separator if you wish to use it to separate the balcony from the cabin. You then have a switch that you can push that ...

Well I have just returned from my first ever visit to a River cruise ship. What a way to start!!! I visited the AmaPrima and Ama are rated the highest standard of ships in Europe according to the Berlitz guide.I flew to Amsterdam and we got picked up by a brand new AMA coach and transferred the short distance to the centre of city to meet the ship, the first eye opener for me was exactly how near to the centre of the town the ship was. If I am being really honest I really didn’t know w...
