On a 12 night cruise 3 formal the rest casual. Their website advises the attire for formal is Cruise Elegant Dining Dress Code: Gentlemen - Dress slacks, dress shirts. We also suggest a sport coat. If you wish to wear suits and ties or tuxedos, by all means we invite you to do so. Ladies - Cocktail dresses, pantsuits, elegant skirts and blouses; if you‘d like to show off your evening gowns, that's great too! Not permitted in the dining room during the Cruise Elegant dinner for ladies and gentlemen: shorts, T-shirts, beach flip-flops, bathing suit attire, jeans, cut-off jeans, sleeveless shirts for men, sportswear, and baseball hats.

We did a 12 night cruise starting the end of july , there were 2 formal evenings ie evening suit , bow tie , cumerbund etc ,ball gown or smart dress for the ladies,other nights smart casual . Very good atmosphere on board , our waitresses were called Natascha & Irena . DEMAND their table as they are A1 !!!! Don't do dining room breakfasts , do the buffet breakfast,much better .City tours expensive & rather boring so walk or short taxi into copenhagen,Helsinki,Amsterdam,Tallin.Walk into Warnemunde, not far.St Petersburg you must be on a tour or you can't get off the ship !Altogether a very enjoyable cruise(my 1st), all staff very helpful , friendly and polite.HOWEVER , in the small print there is a 15% service charge added to any drinks , BUT you can take this off your bill at the end of your cruise (you have to register your credit card against your SAIL and SIGN card at the start of your cruise ).Take your continental voltage adaptor as the ship doesn't have 240 volts UK sockets . Hope these tips and comments help to make your trip even better than ours was , if you need any more info post another note !

I know while I was on Holiday in Goa my ...

The latest technology available in the near v=future on Royal Caribbean is facial recognition. the latest technology is already functioning on Allure of the seas and oasis of the seas and will be found on 13% of the fleet.So what does this mean?It means passengers can now check in really quickly thanks to their pre loaded photo, open their cabin doors without a keycard and a luggage tracker will monitor their bags and send them an alert once the luggage has arrived to the cabin. Is this a ste...

Big News for Celebrity Cruises!!

Celebrity earlier this week came out with some very exciting news that the Celebrity Edge will launch earlier than planned, although I understand the disappointment from those that have already booked thinking they had booked the maiden voyages although this seems to becoming more of a thing as both the Harmony and Symphony have done new sailings after announce a sailings, including the Maiden Voyage.The Celebrity Edge was due to come out in December this year, however she will now have five ...
