No one wears denim jeans on formal nights. Please follow the guidelines.

Is that to go with their teeshirts? For god sake, buy your kids a proper pair of trousers and a shirt and tie for the occasion! If you can afford to take them on a cruise, you can surely afford that can't you? I have seen ten year old boys in dress suits with bow ties, and little girls in ball gowns before now sat eating dinner with their parents on formal evenings. At the same time there has been kids running riot in the theatre wearing football shirts and shorts. I know which I would rather admit to being the parents of! How about you? Happy cruising.

Only asked a question did not need such a rude reply or lecture. My son does not want to be dressed up like a kipper and would prefer to be trendy at 16. This is not my choice but his.

Take him to Debenhams and show him the Red Herring Section .... trendy wear and they are selling a combination of smart shirt, tie and waistcoat, trendy formal wear is the rage and he really cant be that "trendy" if he thinks otherwise .... buy him a good mens magazine to prove it and win him over.

|Depends on what cruise line you are going with, but I do not think they will be acceptable in the main dining room on most cruise lines.

No ! and I doubt they will be permitted in the dining room on any night let alone formal nights on any ship that has a reasonable dress code. Nei.

I also have a 16yr old son with his own sense of style, but he has cruised once before and knows what to expect. He will be wearing a suit of his choosing (and my budget)with a black shirt and white tie (a compromise). He actually looks pretty good by his own admission. However he will also have a pierced eyebrow and lip. Both of which i think are horrible but hey he's just slogged his guts out for his exams and I am allowing a little rebellion over the summer. If your son is adamant he wont dress up, then he will be like a sore thumb in the dining room but if that is an issue there are usually less formal areas to eat. This is their holiday too and it is important to feel comfortable so let them choose.

Lucy Jefcoate's blog

It is a known fact that regardless of the ship or the cruise line that you are sailing with – the cabins are how shall we say …’on the small side’ Lets face it unless you are in a suite (which the majority of people are probably not) then all cabins are restricted on space. But imagine if you know a few tricks to make that cabin space bigger or at least feel like it!Read on to find out which cruise essentials you should be taking with you, that won’t take up much...
