What ship were you on and did you find that on the formal nights people did not dress up?

Colin is right the answer is layers... we went in September 2008 trousers/jeans/t-shirts but remember to pack a lightweight waterproof! and good walking shoes as there is so much to see and do! depending on the cruise ship, they dont seem so formal on Alaskan cruises, we found not too many people dressed up on the formal nights as they do around the Med or Transatlantic.-dont forget your camera, binoculors,sun glasses!

Is it worth taking formal clothes or just smart casual for the formal nights? Your answer is very helpful, thank you.

Cruised inside passage 3 times now with HAL. We found layers to be the answer to day wear and I disagree with the point that evenings on Alaska cruises are not so formal. Most of the guests wore the appropriate level of dress for dinner and that meant that as far as I could see, a good proportion of gentlemen were in dinner suits on the formal occasions.I think us ladies find it easier to pitch the dress level as we can accessorize up or down an outfit.

The answer is book early! Book now for 2018, if you leave it to nearer the time not only will the prices climb but you are unlikely to ge...

One of the perks of living in a seaside town is the yearly airshow that comes to Weston Super Mare every June and lasts the whole weekend. The whole town is buzzing with excitement and ethusiasm, and plane enthusiasts alike. This weekend we were so lucky with weather, reaching the late twenties and even higher in some parts of the day.Not only do we have our skiers filled with amazingly aerodynamics performances but our beach lawns come to life thriving with people walking around the various...
