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.

Does Your Cruise Loyalty Club ...

By Collette Apak

Collette Apak's blog

All cruise lines are keen to get customers back on board their ships once they have taken their first cruise. To help this they all have their individual loyalty schemes, most of which were in place many years before the likes of Tesco Clubcard points and the Boots Advantage card. Most loyalty tiers are measured on how many nights you’ve spent on board or the number of cruises taken. The benefits vary hugely between each cruise company. Some of the benefits for repeat customers include ...
